Oral Roberts University announced enrollment growth for the fifth straight year.

The university reported 3,403 students, an increase of 68 over 2012. Retention of freshmen is more than 80 percent for the fourth consecutive year.

"In the current economic climate, reporting enrollment growth of any kind is a testament to the excellent whole person education provided by ORU,” said ORU President Dr. William M. Wilson. “We look forward to continued growth in any sector as ORU expands educational opportunities on a global scale.”

The reported enrollment numbers were announced days after the inauguration of the university’s fourth president, Dr. Wilson. The increase is attributed to numerous factors including the Whole Person Scholarship Program and the new Armand Hammer Alumni-Student Center.

The Whole Person Scholarship Program is designed to aid well-rounded students who dream of furthering their education. These students are on a quest for wholeness and demonstrate the following: Christian worldview, lifestyle of service, academic achievement, leadership ability, vision to make a life-changing impact on others, and a healthy lifestyle.
