Hi all...I just was wondering about Broken Arrow. Is it a nice place to live, shop, etc? Also, does anyone know anything about Northeastern State University-Broken Arrow? I see that it has a campus there, but with 1,000 something students, I'm wondering if there's something that I don't know.

Thanks for any information you can provide.

Default Info about Broken Arrow

I am not sure where you are moving from, but Broken Arrow is growing very quickly. It is a suburb of Tulsa, but you dont know when you leave one and enter the other. The education system is very good and the city is moving forward quickly. They just outbid Tulsa for a HUGE Bass Pro Shop and surrounding resuraunts. The Creek Turnpike (HWY 169) connects most of BA (Broken Arrow) to Tulsa, Jenks, Sapulpa and Coweta. Northeaster State University (NSU) has it's main campus in Tahlequah, OK. They offer many degrees but excell in education, optomitry, fine arts and business. (Carrie Underwood attends NSU Tahlequah). I have talked to people that have attended NSU BA and they have been impressed with both the staff and the quality of students that attend. If you are going to be buying a home, both BA and Coweta are good places to buy. MOD CUT I can also recommend a GREAT realtor in the area. No relation to me, but I have seen him close MANY transactions. Hope this helps!

Also Broken Arrow was voted one of the best places to live on a CNN website...if you have kids they have lots of programs to keep them busy, plenty of city parks for softball, soccer, baseball...good schools, lots of shopping, safe place to live

Broken Arrow has Rhema where they have gorgeous Christmas lights from Thanksgiving til the 1st of January.

Kenosha in Broken Arrow becomes 71st street a few miles down the street in Tulsa. That is where Woodland Hills Mall is. (I am not sure if it still is, but it used to be the biggest mall in the state.)

I will agree on this one! BA has a great school system, and it has always amazed me that being as close to South Tulsa as it is, there's virtually no crime.
