What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school culture is very inclusive and supportive, the teachers have proven to be very reasonably accessible and for the most part, if you ask someone for help they will help you either with a direct solution or giving you directions on where to get the exact help you're looking for.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakland university is a very beautiful school and well run. It has its typical “bad professors” but also it’s great ones. One big downside is that the driving on campus is horrible people drive like idiots in the parking lots. The food is decent but could be better but they do have vending machines everywhere.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakland University is an amazing school! The campus is absolutely beautiful, no matter what season it is, there are attractions for every student. I love walking around campus in the spring/summer and I enjoy all the events that OU provides all year long. I love the connections that I have made with my professors and all the students. The professors are always there and available to help no matter what, and the students at OU are so involved, always finding ways to make a change. Everyone is so nice and friendly and OU always finds a way to make you feel at home even if you don't live there. My favorite places are the library and the OC because both places foster such a nice and lively environment. I am very blessed to have the opportunity to attend OU. I always look forward to going to school now because my love for knowledge has grown. Ever since I started OU I have noticed a change in myself, I have become more outgoing and happier. If I could change anything, I would only change the parking. I would want more parking spots because it gets a little packed, especially since every year there are more and more students attending OU because it's amazing!! I would recommend OU to anyone because I am so proud to be a golden grizzly. I am so happy and thankful to be a part of this amazing school, OU will always have a special place in my heart.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When it comes to Colleges and Universities, Oakland University stands out as one of the best, most student caring schools out there. Now I may sound bias since I am going there but I have been too and visited many schools during my senior year of high school and I can honestly say that Oakland University stands out from the rest. Being at Oakland University has been nothing more than a once in a lifetime experience and if I am being completely honest, I wouldn't change a thing! Coming to this school, I had no idea what I was in store for and I knew it would be a big change in my life but it was a change I was happily prepared for and a choice that I am so happy I made. Now I get asked a lot "Joe, what make OU so different from other schools? Why should I go here?" And the answer to that question is very simple and one that I give all the time! What makes Oakland University different from the rest isn't just the excellent education it provides or the amazing staff that gives it, but it's the unique students that come from all walks of life that make OU the school to be at.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am very excited to be attending Oakland University in the Fall. They are continuously updating their campus and have an exceptional Human Health building that was added over the past 5 years. It has the newest form of simulation technology and I cannot wait to use it when I take my Nursing classes! I am so excited to become a Grizzly and take advantage of all the great opportunities Oakland has to offer their students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is not accommodating to older students. They are cutting back on evening and weekend classes even though there have been teachers offering to teach and students showing interest in taking them. Older students are discriminated against for financial aid too. You will see that they will audit older students more than younger students . The cost to attend is not worth the disrespect you will receive or the bureaucratic hoops you have to jump through.

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.
