Oakland University is an involved and exciting school with so much to offer students. A place to learn and explore many options of career choices. A place to meet life long friends.
Yewande from Warren, MI
Oakland University is a very fun, healthy place to be. The campus is beautiful and peaceful, the staff and students are very friendly and open, and the different academic and extracurricular opportunities are fantastic. I not only learned a great deal inside the classroom, but outside the classroom as well, and that made my college experience a lot more enjoyable.
