What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakwood University is a school where God is first and everything and although things may get rough just know that the reward is soon to come. It is also a school where you can learn about anything and will have support from everyone because we are not just students, teachers, and staff but family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

How do I feel about Oakwood University? In all honesty if I could go back in time I would have told myself not to ever try to attend. Yes there are some good things about Oakwood, but there are some things about Oakwood that I would have expect for a Christian school . When first desire to attend the university in want to go in order to help go my faith in God, and to be around like mind young people has well. When I started attend it became apparent that school attire rate is low and the Graduation attend rate is lower. One of the highest is the incoming freshmen which isn't saying much to those already attend, because those of us who are attend know that a third of those freshmen will not be returning to the University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

OU has a great community. The alumnus are very involved with activities on campus. Students are offered a well rounded atmosphere to participate in. Many of the people that attend OU are coming from SDA Academies in the United States. It's almost like taking your family with you to school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I call this school a glorified boarding school. There is assigned curfews and although a religious-based education is offered, it is easy to feel as though you are being gagged by religion and punished financially if you don't adhere to the Worship requirements. This school reprehends its students for tardiness and then do not hold themselves in the same regard. There is also A VERY SERIOUS ORGANIZATIONAL problem, cause on numerous occasion was my account in the system screwed up on this school's behalf. I wish I had more positive things to report on this school, but I can honestly say I am not happy with the fact that I came here, the money, sadness, and depression I obtained from the "Oakwood Way"

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I love Oakwood. I feel that being here has really helped me find myself. I have experienced growth in all areas--spiritual, mental, physical, and emotional. I like the health initiative that the university puts in place, and the family-oriented atmosphere it provides. There is also a major focus on spiritual growth, which I have benefited from exponentially. The faculty and students alike are praying for your success, and this is a good feeling knowing that people care. One thing I would like to see improve is the cafeteria food, and renovations on some of the buildings are needed. Overall it is a good school if you are looking for both academic and spiritual success.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakwood University is a diverse place of spirituality, fellowship, and hard work. It's a university that welcomes any person, no matter where they come from. Our school program is helpful and the people there are so caring and are willing to help you in any way possible. There are also a lot of extracurricular activities that everyone can enjoy like choirs, orchestras, and a plethora of unique clubs. I think that Oakwood University is a place that people will connect with and make memories out of. I've already had my share of memories and cant't wait to make many more.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakwood University is an HBCU but it's not just for African Americans. People of all races and ethnicities are welcome at Oakwood University. You are prepared for life after College and well trained for your career. Oakwood is not perfect whatever you are looking for in College you can find at Oakwood. It's smaller class sizes and professors make themselves available and go beyond office hours. There are extra-curricular activities many teams to join on campus not just athletics. If you want an education that is well-rounded full of memories and higher learning then Oakwood University is the place to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakwood University is the type of school that gives you a choice. If you want a relationship with God there are outlets to do so, and if you want to party there are individuals who offer that as well. It is up to the person who attends Oakwood University for what they are trying to involve themselves in. Personally, without Oakwood University I would have gone down a wrong path and the school has helped me form a relationship with Christ and has pushed me to excel in my academics as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am glad to be an "Oakwoodite". Although Oakwood University is not perfect, it has excellent teachers, uplifting worship, a beautiful campus, fun clubs and groups to be involved in, and an overall friendly environment. Since the school is in Huntsville, AL, there are many options for off-campus recreation, such as shopping, eating out, visiting a nature park, and more.
