  • Nov-08-2011 I am a current student here

    The campus is absolutely gorgeous, especially in the fall. The average class size is about 30 students, and the lectures are around 200. All of my professors know me by name, and I have several opportunities to get help and tutoring if I am having trouble. The environment is so friendly here! People are always inviting me to do things with them, and it really helped me make friends fast.

    Oakland University has many extra curricular activities, great cafes and respectable sports teams. They even have their own radio station, for Pete's sake!

    I personally think the campus is beautiful, and they have no hidden fees, so the rec center, and parking are included in your tuition.
