College Freshman

Scholarships: I had a bad experience with financial aid due to being dual enrolled at a local community college. Once everything is sorted out, I'm hopeful that I will have a better experience in future semesters.

Nightlife: I am not familiar with the nightlife among the dorms on the main campus, but the nightlife surrounding the AFC is fantastic. The campus is located in the center of the local bar scene and there is almost always something going on downtown.

Health & Safety: Campus security is very attentive to students needs and is always in the parking lot to accompany students to their cars, particularly after dark. They provide a sense of security in an area that is considered to be high in crime.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I enjoy the small classes available to students in the social work program. I look forward to embarking on the journey of my new career upon graduation.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not yet applied to the social work program as applications are not accepted until June of each year.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: I live nearby and able to drive myself everywhere.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have been living less than a mile from AFC for nearly 4 years. I love the location and the rent prices are some of the cheapest in the state.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I live right down the street from the Anton Frankel Center. I feel right at home and very much enjoy the convenient location.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I have never seen anyone use drugs or alcohol at AFC. Furthermore, I have not heard other students discuss the use of these substances.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It has been a long winter but parking its very convenient and always available.

College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I do not attend the main campus. I attend classes at the Anton Frankel Center in Mt. Clemens. Here, the strictness of policies are fair.

3 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: Most of the on campus transportation can be covered by walking which is great, the Bear Bus helps moving to the other side of campus or to the parking, but again, as a commuter student, I rely on a car to reach the campus.

Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: Commuter student, not there for the night life.

Oakland University has much to offer any student, with free state-of-the-art workout facilities, workout classes, and parking. Oakland University is not only considered an affordable school—but also a good one. If students had the chance to choose a college all over again, most would say they'd still choose Oakland University. Oakland gives students tools like academic and career advising, and also online classes and tutoring. Clubs and organizations help students to get involved and meet new people, while internships help students get real world experience in their professional fields while still in school.

Through connection programs, like one that helps freshmen become accustomed to college life and introduces them to students pursuing the same degrees, Oakland creates a safe environment for students to learn. Oakland is also considered one of the safer campuses, giving students the option of being escorted home by a student cadet when walking alone at night in the fall or winter semesters; this is known as the "Safewalk" program and is only a phone call away.
