Throughout high school I was never challenged but as soon as I came to OU that all changed. The professors have been pretty good for the most part and they have challenged me to think critically which is a lost art in our society today.

    Great school for the money. Can be as interactive and full fledged college experience as you'd like it to be. Good school for those who want to work and get a degree at the same time.

    Oakland University is a wonderful university with amazing intelligent teachers. I am a transfer student and all of my credits transferred. Oakland has a reasonable tuition rate and a variety of on campus housing.

    Parking is horrifying as you look over a sea of cars. Great new medical science building with fancy attributes. Cramped main campus and there is almost no community sense.

    Oakland University has a beautifully well-keep campus and a live community. It is mostly a commuter college but the university is currently working toward new campus housing. The staff are skilled in their fields and are eager to aid students toward graduation.

    Oakland is a very diverse community which I am proud to be a part of. There are it's upsides and downsides, but the friends and connections I have made so far are nothing short of outstanding! I truly feel like I am at home.

    It is a great school. The parking is terrible if you're a commuter. The classes are relatively small and you can get lots of hands on help with your professor.

    Oakland University in all is a good school however you must stay on top of things. If you change your major then make sure you talk to the academic adviser and know what you have to take and when. It is very hard to get ahold of financial aid as well.
