What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy that I can commute to school everyday; however, this is one of the college's biggest downfalls. There is minimal student spirit for sports, activities, etc., because there are so many commuters. Personally, I come to class and leave. I rarely stay to socialize or attend an event. Oakland is building a new dorm - hopefully encouraging more on-campus students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakland University is often said to be the school people go to because of money and stay at because they fell in love with it. It is the perfect combination of a small college and large campus. The class sizes are not too big or too small and the professors are usually approachable. It is the goldilocks of colleges! Since it never takes to long to get from one place to another you do not have to worry about brutal walks in the chilling cold. All in all, Oakland University is an up and coming school worthy of consideration from all parties.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This opinion is from a medical school perspective. Oakland University has a gorgeous campus with an excellent building and anatomy lab. The resources from a newer school is still limited due to constraints and it is not as robust as the University of Michigan. That being said this school is enthusiastic and eager to change this. One of the best things about this school is the sense of community. I can say that I would be happy to refer my family or friends to any of my classmates here at this school.

I enjoy the atmosphere and almost all of the college. You don't feel pressured into doing anything you wouldn't want to do while also encourages you to get out of your comfort zone to join with the community of the college. All of this explain why i think oakland is a stellar college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This university has issues with parking and there always seems to be some big construction project. The tuition goes up every year so by the time you're done its like $800 extra a semester. There is plenty of potential to find either a on-campus job or a job off campus. Living in university housing is fine. Most people go home for the weekend as there isn't much going on around the college. I would have to say that the professors at Oakland are available for there students reasonably and don't grade too harshly. Oakland University is in my opinion a good school for students pursuing degrees in elementary education, nursing, and business as these three schools are the strongest. Sports on campus aren't going to be televised often. The biggest sports are men's basketball and soccer. There is not a football team. The food options are okay if you go to the Oakland Center. Don't upset your stomach by going to Vandenburg Cafeteria.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakland University is a great college in Rochester, Michigan. It's mainly a commuter school, many students live off campus and drive to school daily. The campus is extremely clean and well put together. There are plenty of remodels going on. However, the tuition increases every year drastically.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakland University is an public institution with a lot of potential. I have received the full ride merit scholarship here, but am planning to transfer to University of Michigan next semester. Although OU has a beautiful campus, welcoming students, and contemporary buildings, the academics in the school need to improve. I believe a way to do this is to increase the GPA and SAT requirements for incoming freshman in the undergraduate population. Because although Oakland has a lot of potential, they have to act on it and make changes to its academic environment.
