The faculty at Oakwood is wonderful. The teachers don't only teach the information in the textbook, but they also teach from the Bible. This is great because, in the end, the only wisdom that will truly count is what we learn from the Bible and apply to our lives. It doesn't matter what subject they're teaching. They all find some way to tie it into the Bible. I came from public school, so I was not used to this kind of teaching structure because it is not allowed. All of my teachers started class...

    Both of my parents went to this college and they say that it was one of the most enriching environments that they've ever been in. It must be wonderful to be surrounded by people of your skin color who believe the same as you do and who want nothing more than to do well in school and to build their relationship with God. This college is high on my list as far as schools that I am thinking of attending.

    Oakwood University is a great university to attend if you are seeking to be in a Christian environment. It is very rich in Black American culture and history (with emphasis on the Seventh-day Adventist Church). My only issues with the university as an educational institution are with the disorganized Financial Aid and Student Accounts departments.

    One can find anything he or she wants to at Oakwood University. The academics and the teachers (for the most part) are very friendly and want to see the students succeed-though there are favorites among classmates. The monies donated to Oakwood could be better managed and the managers working in office tend to be unorganized.

    A great place to be academically and spiritually motivated. A friendly and pleasing environment for all students. a place that you'll leave to remember once you visit.

    Oakwood University is an astounding school that challenges not only the mind, but also your spiritual relationship with God. Oakwood encourages you to find God for yourself and learn his plan for your life. Once entering Oakwood, you would learn that there is no other school like it; you will enter to learn and depart to serve.

    Oakwood is great academically but there are very little chances for you to socialize with people unless they're in your classes or in your dorm.
