Poteau GEAR UP students tour Oral Roberts University
Poteau GEAR UP students recently toured Oral Roberts University (ORU) in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The tour started by meeting at the Welcome Center where they were greeted by ORU’s tour guides. Students received a presentation on campus life and the benefits of concurrent enrollment before college. Next, students went on a guided tour of ORU’s campus. They were given details on what life at ORU is like and shown various buildings such as the residence halls, Prayer Tower, and Learning Resources Center. They heard about the University’s long and rich history, as well as its beautiful and unique architecture. The tour ended with a question-and-answer discussion about college and campus life.
The field trip was sponsored by Eastern Oklahoma State College GEAR UP. Eastern received a $17 million federal GEAR UP grant in 2017 and will serve over 3,000 students in 39 area schools for seven years.
