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.

    Oakland University is everything I have looked for in a school. Its campus is beautiful, the staff is very welcoming and friendly, and I feel like it will become a second home to me when I begin attending in the fall 2015 semester. With a variety of academic programs, helpful on-campus resources, and great academic advisers, any student with initiative can succeed here.

    Not big at all, but not too small either. The people are friendly and try to get you involved in at least one thing. A clean, pretty campus to look at.

    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.
