What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakland University is a fairly decent school. Many people come here to start and venture off to other schools to further their educational pursuits. Overall the school to enroll into, even if it is just for a year or your entire academic career. Oakland University has many opportunities and programs (academically and interest wise).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakland University has a beautiful campus. There are many ways for students to get involved, via extra curricular clubs, getting paid to play in the pep band at basketball games, or by getting one of the many on-campus jobs they offer. However, O.U. has many a fault. They are quite awful at taking transfer credits if you have started somewhere else. The buildings and renovations are not prioritized whatsoever....a brand new Oakland Center has been built, however there are other buildings that leak when it rains, and don't have adequate accommodations for students. There is much around O.U, however the scholarship opportunities from the university are FEW (though if you work hard in high school, you will get a return from your academic scholarships), and tuition is HIGH. The professors for the most part are all wonderful and caring, working to help you get where you need to be. Don't let this discourage you from checking it out though! It can be a great place to make connections and build your career, as long as you can fight through the politics that is the school. They also offer wonderful opportunities for people to come and check out their programs.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My opinion on Oakland University is that it is indeed a safe campus. The size of this campus is average for middle-class students. However, I feel that some professors from this school may not be experts on the subject that they teach. I feel that they should create more active and healthy relationships with their students instead of handing them heavy workload and no communication. I also believe that Oakland University should become more open about activities and events occurring on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are plenty of ways to get involved in campus. There are also a lot of places you can go when you need extra help in a class. Professors are nice and the people are welcoming. Some classes have over one hundred students and some are as small as thirty to forty people. Even in larger lecture halls it’s easy to get to know your professors and get help outside of class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakland University has the most beautiful campus. Each season highlights a different part of the vision of campus. Learning is top priority, and everyone there behaves in a way that demonstrates such. There are constantly events for everyone to participate in which is also a great aspect of campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I truly love this school! I decided to go here because it was really close to my house and because the teaching department is very good at Oakland University. I love the social life and the friends you create here at Oakland. This is my first year in college, and I've already met some wonderful people and created relationships with professors that will be very beneficial for me in the future. Professors are fantastic, always willing to help when you need it and they also have office hours, where you can make an appointment and chat with them about any concerns you may have about the class or even your personal life; they are very approachable. Oakland University is a great school to go to!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's usually really quiet, making it great for studying . There's always different activities to go to that are set up by the different organizations on campus or in the dorms with the APM's or RA's. The First Year Advising center is always available for those who need help and students are required to have two meetings with the adviser's which helps students stay on track.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love my university, and I'm only a freshman! I am excited to continue my journey here and pursue my undergrad before medical school. I have yet to meet a student who I'm not fond of, everyone is so welcoming and happy! There is always something happening on campus or around the area, so there is never a dull moment.
