Stopped by to see the Giant Praying Hands sculpture and were surprised by the number of futuristic buildings on the campus. Very easy to drive through - Make sure to walk over to the Prayer Tower.

A great site to visit. We all need to pray more and this is a lovely reminder that we are not in it alone

I always watched Oral Roberts on TV when I was younger. I moved down to Tulsa and was able to see the campus in person. For sure a must see place if you are ever in the area.

This review is not about my religious views or faith. This is about seeing a place that was one man's vision and how he was able to accomplish that vision. This is open to the public to see. The hands are definitely inspiring, as is the Prayer Tower. The prayer tower has some very good back story information on how... More

One thing about evangelist Oral Roberts - he was a believer in thinking big. When he started building the university that bears his name, Roberts made sure to have some interesting architecture be part of the landscape. A large prayer towner might be the best example of it. The prayer tower is more or less in the middle of the... More

Was not disappointed with my photos of the Praying Hands. The sculpture stands 60' high and weighs 30 tons. It is the largest bronze sculpture in the world. Very Impressive.

For the six of us traveling from Austin to Tulsa, we had some time to fill in. We stopped at ORU to see the 60' praying hands and decided to visit the 200' tall prayer tower. There are great views of the campus from there. It is free. There are scriptures and thoughts to encourage meditation. Individual prayer rooms in... More
