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.
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.
