3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: When i do go out on Saturday nights and put the books down for a few hours the night life on campus is pretty lively.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: not much variety but satisfies the average student

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Almost all the majors require some type of internship.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: not many students partake in taking drugs.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Its pretty decent when compared to the dinning resources around other universities.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Its not the best and could use some creativity, but for the most part its accaeptable.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing selection at my school is so much better than the on-campus selection. Off-campus housing screams freedom and adult-life. One can go on campus and eat in the cafeteria or the market, but there's something so fantastic about eating the delicacies made from ones own hand! And the curfew is more realistic considering that we're are adults. And transportation is available if one has no car. The few cons I will have to address is the fast that we still have curfew. Granted, it's later than the curfew on-campus, but regardless there is still a curfew.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: We have limited transportation services on campus during times we experience inclement weather, such as the recent ice and snow storms encountered during January and February 2014. Other than the limited service, freshman students walk to classes and other venues on campus. Most upper classmen have cars.

4 College Freshman

Computers: My only complaint is the food but I have a fridge and microwave.

Nightlife: I attend a Seventh-day Adventist Christian institution so nightlife is not supposed to exist. However, that doesn't mean that people do go out. I fact, many people, if not most do. But I don't so I can't make an accurate judgment about nightlife on campus. As a campus we have no "nightlife". During students free time, especially on weekends..... well I can't speak for everyone so I won't make a rating.

Diversity: Diversity on campus is low if you go based on looks, since everyone has pigmented skin. However, there are people from a variety of countries that attend this school.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: i do like t he fact that they have a skating rink on campus and try to get the campus involve into activities like movie nights and games and things like that for people that cannot get off campus.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Our religion doesn't believe in Greek life.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: depending on the time of year the wait can be ridiculously long. But once you get in and get to work they're pretty speedy.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: So far I like my major. I just changed it but the teacher who got me interested into my new major was awesome.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I just started the program but so far I like it.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I am not really sure about off campus living technically I'm not allowed to live off campus.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The strictness on campus is ridiculous. I almost feel like a prisoner in my own dorm

College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not really sure because I don't participate in sports that much

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Depending on where you dine the food can either be good or bad. The market food is really good but the prices are ridiculous. the Cafe food is all you can eat but the food is under-cooked most of the time.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I like my major because one specific teacher really got me into my class. I understood clearly what was going on learned alot of things and also learned things about myself and I applied what I learned outside of the class as well

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Some teachers can be very rude and also hard to understand But for the most part I like all my teachers.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Angelo Deguerre
View all previous student authors

The overall experience for Oakwood is exemplary. It may take a while to get settled and understand how Oakwood operates, but when they do, Oakwood becomes a wonderful experience. It is like looking at the cup as half full rather than half empty. If one focuses on the negative things of Oakwood, they will not have a good experience, but if one looks at the positive things, their experience can be promising.

Being a freshman and waiting in long registration lines may seem rough and uncomfortable at first, but in the long run, it is worth it. It is worth the relationships you build. It is worth the spiritual life that you gain. It is worth the amazing classes you take and the experiences you have. Oakwood is not a perfect school, and it definitely lacks in some areas, but it is all worth it compared to what you are given. The friends that are made and the experiences that are had will be things that students wouldn't trade for the world. Many people focus on the destination, but at Oakwood, it is not so much the destination that matters but the journey you take to get to that destination. Future students can be assured that Oakwood University is a great journey.
