Athletic Activities


Oakland City University is a Christian faith-based learning community dedicated to the enhancement of intellectual, spiritual, physical and social development for positive leadership.


Campus Life and its intramural program equally support and without equivocation uphold the lofty ideals contained in the OCU mission statement. The goal of the intramural program at OCU is to engage and interact with Oakland City University's community body through a variety of recreational activities in the hopes of assisting that body in propagating a healthy integrity that will be both beneficial and instrumental in their future.
