Wow. You know, having grown up very close to Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma-- I've always believed that its campus looked like an Expo grounds from the mid-60's to mid-70's itself. Here's a few images to show you what I mean. If you love fair-inspired architecture from that period, it's definitely worth checking out. I wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that Roberts commissioned some of the same architects who worked at Expos of the time.

Beautiful pictures. Frank Wallace was the architect who originally designed the campus. There's quite a bit about him and the school here:

Go back (up) a few pages for the whole story.
