What Students Are Saying

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.

I think that Oakwood U is a wonderful college, where there have many courses you can take, especially if you are majoring in Biology and want to attend Oakwood, there is a wonderful Biology program. It is a great experience for me because I visit there before and their worship experience is amazing. So if you want to attend OU, you have made the right choice.
