    Meet with an academic adviser once a year. Stay on track. Study. Study. Study. The library is open 24 hours a day. 7 days a week.

    Great for students who live around Oakland University if you're short on money. By commuting you'll be able to save a good $8,000 a year. However, some people prefer the dorm life. You NEED a car if you live on campus. There are no city buses so you'll pretty much be stuck on campus without one. Right now parking is terrible, but they are building new parking decks so we'll see how that goes. Also, if you are really into wearing your school's logo and a sense of community, Oakland is not the school for you. No one seems to care and there aren't that many activities to celebrate and participate in together as one big community. They do not have a football team either and it's not a party school. If none of that bugs you, it is a great school to commute and save money as well as earn a science degree.

    Consider living on campus! Though Oakland University is a mainly a commuter school, the dorm life is very active and student apartments are a great way to learn how to live on a budget.

    This school is made up of mostly commuters so sometimes it is difficult to make friends right away, but the atmosphere makes it more enjoyable. FYI - Watch out for parking. It is atrocious.
