    Definitely look at your options. If you know what you majoring in, than look at what schools over the best program for that major. If you don't know what you want to major in, go to a community college. It will save you a lot of money! Once classes start, there are many resources that you can turn to if you need help. We have a tutoring center, supplemental instructions, office hours, and a 24 hour library. Also, use ratemyprofessor.com when planning your classes. It will be your lifesaver! As far as making friends, just talk to people and get involved. A lot of people don't talk in class because the school is primarily commuters. Nonetheless, you can still make friends you just have to make the first move.

    Come out and see us on a campus tour! The admissions staff is super friendly and helpful. If possible, find ways to interact with Oakland (or any other school you may be interested in) after your tour; explore the website, follow us on social media, and talk to any relatives or friends you may have who are familiar with the institution (or read reviews online!). The more you interact with Oakland, the better informed you will be before deciding on which college you would like to attend.

    Take advantage of campus visits and events for prospective students. The staff is extremely helpful and more than willing to answer any questions you might have to the best of your ability. Their job is to make sure OU is the right school for you, not just to convince you to come here and give them your money. Continue to work hard and show initiative through high school; their merit scholarships and academic grants can add up and make your first year much cheaper than you think.
