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.

My overall opinion of Oakwood University is that I love being at this school. It has changed my life completely and I plan to stay here for the next four year to evolve my life for the better. So many wonderful fun loving people to be around who are always lending out a helping hand. The people meet while attending Oakwood University all have one thing in common and that is the belief in God who will truly motivate you to do better with your life in every aspect.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my Opinion, Oakwood University is a good school when academics and arts come involved, but i believe that they would need a little improvement with interacting with the students, and once they have the students with them one hundred percent, Oakwood University could be one hundred percent.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

So far, while being a current freshman student at Oakwood University, I have really been enjoying myself. I can say that the college is really fun because the student government has new activities for us to do every Saturday night. Of course, it’s really easy to get distracted by your work because you have friends, activities, clubs, and many other things you want to be affiliated with and you may forget to do certain assignments. But I can say that, most of, the professors understand situations like those and will grant you amnesty. The clubs they have are really fun. I am currently in a club called Mkono-Nia which is a drama club that is solely based on spreading the message of Jesus Christ through examples of real life and fictional situations. Other clubs such as Nova- which is a club for people who have an interest in modeling, and the science clubs will definitely keep you busy and sometimes distracted. I must also say if you are going to Oakwood University and you are NOT a Christian it can be a little hard for you to adapt to the environment-since the school is solely based off of Christian values and beliefs. You many even at times find yourself uncomfortable too. Every week the students are required to go to, at least, three worships- on top of going to required chapels which are also three times a weeks and maintaining your work, classes, and study time. Oakwood University really isn’t a bad school. I’ve already made friends that I love and have a strong connection with. People at Oakwood care about me more than my own family does so once you go there you will become attached to the environment, but unfortunately, like every other school there will be disadvantages and maybe even things that will make you feel completely uncomfortable but once you find your comfort zone you’ll be just fine.
