We have been to Mabee Center for many occassions. Visiting the ORU campus us a must event for anyone coming to Tulsa. Walking the prayer garden and going in the prayer tower is well worth the extra time.

Roy Clark used to have his celebrity show here in the past when his golf tournament was here in Tulsa. I saw Chuck Berry play here so the place has a history, The acoustics, sound system and lighting are good. Unfortunately they seldom book any acts and mostly use it for college functions, political meetings and such these days. There... More

We used to hold church in this arena for a number of years and it's terrific for sight and sound. Good for music and sports events as well as seminars and speaking events.

Throughout the year(s) the Mabee Center hosts a wide array of events ranging from basketball games to concerts to stage shows and all are enjoyable to watch at this facility. It may not be the newest or trendiest place in "T"-Town but it still provides great entertainment for a variety of events. It's clean, easily accessible and great for everybody!... More

The arena was built in the 70's and has been remodeled some since. In the mid 2000's the team was winning a lot and going to the NCAA tournament often. People would show up and were energetic, but that is not the case now. Still, getting to watch a game in comfortable seats in a +10,000 seat building is a... More

Visit Tulsa and the Mabee Center when there I a Christian concert in town. The facility is always clean and students usually work there. You will always enjoy the campus at ORU.

ORU has a beautiful campus, and the mabee center is a wonderful part of it. It is older, obviously not the BOK center, but it is still a wonderful facility for us to have here in Tulsa.
