What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakwood University is a unique place being that it is the only historically black Seventh-day Adventist institution in the United States. It is a Protestant Christian college that upholds a modest dress code. It has a religious atmosphere and includes different student-led campus ministries. Students who attend Oakwood and live on campus attend mandatory worships and are given curfews. Male and female students live in separate dorms based on gender. Oakwood promotes a healthy campus and serves no meet in the cafeteria or marketplace. Alcohol and/or drugs is not allowed on the campus. The motto for Oakwood is "enter to learn, depart to serve." Students are trained in different ways to serve through education, volunteer work, and missionary work. The Oakwood University Church is located on the campus and is the location of Breath of Life Ministries. By having a prestigious church available to the students, allows students to participate on the pulpit and to attend revivals and concerts at the church. Theology students can also intern at the church. Oakwood promotes the atmosphere to have intellectual Biblical conversations. There are no fraternities or sororities affiliated with the campus because the school promotes that we are all brothers and sisters in Christ; therefore, there is no need for a division of Greek clubs. Seventh-day Adventism is a worldwide religion and Oakwood University is internationally known institutions. Students of color come from all over the United States, Caribbean countries, African countries, and European countries to attend Oakwood. There is a variety of cultures between the students of Oakwood University. These are reasons why Oakwood University is a great school to go to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Oakwood University! I am glad that I made the decision to attend the college. I love that Oakwood University is a historically black college. It makes me happy to be going to a christian university. I think its great that teachers pray with students at the beginning of class! I love the fact that the teachers and staff make an effort to know all student who are attending the school. My first semester of my freshman year I was able to get to know all my teachers. I love the opportunity they have for students to control and take charge of their healthy while in school. I am happy that I was able to have more African American friends. When I was growing up I didn't have a lot of African American friends because they didn't want to hang out with me. The African Americans at Oakwood University are very nice and are easy to become friends with. I love that the students demonstrate how to be a good student and be a true christian. I know I'm going to make life long friends at Oakwood University. Lastly, I love the weekends because every Saturday everyone comes to worship God. I am glad that I am attending a Seventh-day Adventist school. My overall opinion of Oakwood University is that it is an outstanding school.

Oakwood University is a beautiful campus. From the faculty to the college students they're all great people. I am grateful to be able to go there. It may be very expensive but it's worth going. I am hoping to raise money so I will be able to stay at the University!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakwood University is what you make it. I received a great education, I was able to meet great life-long friends, and it helped mold me into the individual that I am today. I am a much more independent, confident woman than I was before attending Oakwood. And I would not want to be an alumnus from any other school but Oakwood.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Oakwood University is a good one. I love this school and I don't say that just because I go here but I say this because I loved this school before I could even walk. Oakwood is like any other college or university, with the exception that we are an Adventist school. I have experience God here like no other and it is all for the good and of the better for myself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I have mixed opinions of this institution, but they tend toward the positive side. Oakwood fosters an environment that nurtures young Christians (especially Seventh-day Adventists) in their growth. There are plenty of opportunities to grow spiritually as well as academically. The main cons are: 1. Lack of diversity (The university is predominantly African American with a small Latino minority and few students of of other ethnicities.) 2. The administration is disorganized. I have had numerous accounting issues, and the shortcoming was on their part. On a positive note, every year there is some improvement taking place on the campus, especially pertaining to the health of the students. For instance, because of the healthy campus initiative that they are currently implementing, the dining has improved greatly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakwood as awhole is a great institution, depending on what you're looking for. If you want a riveting SDA education deep rooted in African American pride its the place for you. If not you may not enjoy it as much. The jist is the food is abysmal there are a bit of rules but if you grew up adventist it feels like home with less rules

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakwood has given me nothing but great experiences so far. As an incoming freshman, Oakwood took absolute care of us. The freshman orientation was well planned and put together nicely. The establishment always seems to be working together for the good of the students. I am sure that the success of students sit high upon the university’s priorities unlike some universities that just want money. Constant programs for many different majors to help in any way possible. The facilities they give us access to is also a major help. The quality of the facilities is indeed impressive and help an induvial maximize the benefits from it. The teachers are there to not only teach but help you grow. With the amount of office hours, teachers have available, they make themselves available to help you in any way they can. Faculty treats us like adults and with the utmost respect. Even have programs that are directed to focus on the health of people and the cooperation to help induvial improve their health if that is what they want. Oakwood is placed in a beautiful place where if you want to just be surrounded by peace and silence, you don’t have to wonder far for it. I love that Oakwood is not just some super busy, loud, or distracting campus. The campus is surrounded by nature with a beautiful sight of the mountains which can do a lot for you when it feels like you are just stressed out. I love every bit of Oakwood, but mainly because their goal is aligned with my philosophy. Oakwood recognized that for anyone to be who they are meant to be, they must put God first.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakwood University is an amazing school. There is no other experience like it. When students come here, they grow spiritually, academically, and socially. The teacher try to incorporate God into the learning everyday. The student body encourages and builds one another up academically and when life just becomes stressful

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakwood University home of the Ambassadors is an amazing Christian university to attend. Although we do not maintain all the latest objects and accessories, the faculty and staff do their very best to make sure that everyone receives the help that they need, and they wont stop until you are well taken care of. Here at Oakwood, although we do things a little differently compared to other universities such as going to chapel once a week, and making sure you have all three worship credits per week, were one big happy family. Here at Oakwood we are here to serve one another faithfully so no one is left behind. Were all involved in each way possible, and we continuously bring each other up, so that we may succeed together as the family we are. Like out motto says, "Enter to learn, Depart to serve" that's exactly what we do. Over all i would rate my school a 10 out of 10 for character and spiritual building, and family orientation.
