In a mere 26 days, I will graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. If someone had told me that would happen five years ago, I would’ve laughed in his face. On the day of my graduation from high school, I was enrolled in the Honors Program at Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Durant, Oklahoma, and the idea of attending ORU had never crossed my mind.
When I finished high school, I had actually never heard of Oral Roberts or his university and the first time I set foot on campus in the summer of 2008, I had only a vague idea of the events that had transpired the year before. For the uninitiated, “the events that had transpired” refers to the ouster of Richard Roberts as president, an event I like to call “the Regime Change.”
