4 College Junior

Academics: There are many classes available, and the professors are really helpful.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Coming from a rural, mostly-white town, it feels pretty diverse here to me. However, the majority of students are still white.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really like being here. The campus and the people are pretty great.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall experience with my college meets my requirements of what I was looking for in a college. They have not disappointed me within any measures. I am able to study anywhere and class size is reasonable. The professors have different teaching styles which getting used to has to be remembered. But, they all make sure you understand the lesson and get the help you need.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My major has taught me so much within classes and student teaching/internships. The career center has brought me advice and thoughts to think about for the future. They provide packets and online information to help give you an idea to where you stand within your years.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Health and safety are taken seriously on campus. Police patrol everyday throughout the campus streets and there are alerts on every corner incase of emergencies. Even throughout dorm rooms, people take measures to make sure everyone is in and safe. There haven't been any crimes while I have been in college and no matter if there is, Ill feel safe because our security is very secure.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing has so many options. They're even building another dorm room to ensure everyone has a place to live and just incase of emergencies! Its easy to fill out application process, yet it takes awhile for them to fulfill room assignments, usually within the end of the summer. But, the atmosphere brings people together to sit and chat, do homework, and create great memories throughout the entire dorm room.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life is very small in the campus atmosphere, yet they still make a difference within their organization! They have fundraisers and activities to get people involved and prove that they are wanting to help Oakland become more promotional!

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: I have never seen so much school spirit than at Oakland! Over hundreds of students support our Athletes which gain more wins for the season! Only its not just about winning, but to show the amount of support to prove ones confidence and memorable decisions!!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Oakland University brings out the best in people while bringing everyone together to new experiences and communication skills. I have gained so many friendships and learned to break out my comfort zone with Oaklands interventions and clubs!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far, I've taken classes where the environments are friendly.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: there isn't much that happens on campus but if something happens, OUPD and others definitely try their very best to resolve the problems.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: living on campus is the best and worst thing about OU. the housing process is a mess every year and it could be better. when it came time to apply for housing for the upcoming school year, the server crashed about 5-10 mins before it was time to sign up. to those who don't like the idea of community bathrooms, it's not as bad as you think. of course, it will take some getting use to but at least you don't have to buy cleaning supplies. also, don't be afraid to talk to people on your floor and in your building.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: personally, I think greek students think they are the best thing walking around campus. they think they are 100x better than non-greeks. some greeks are good people but overall they aren't the best.

4 College Senior

Athletics: great athletics. we are becoming better and stronger each year; going to the different sporting events is a great way to meet people, hang out with friends and support the team.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: when I first started in 2013, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it and I was ready to transfer. I am getting ready to start my senior year and I glad I decided to stay at OU. I feel as if I met great people and I grew as a person. Financial aid office is still a mess though and people with power are becoming a bit shady when it comes to expenses and tuition but other than that I love OU.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: School has been adequate so far. I come for the classes, I stay for the classes, and I leave once my classes are over. Nothing more, nothing less.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: OU is not the most well-known school, but, with the correct degree, it can assist in obtaining a position at a company related to one's field.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The school has taken measures to install security across campus, and the OU police force seems competent, though I have not interacted with them.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Unheard of, to me and my friends, and I do not see the impact they have on our school/society.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: I do not pay much attention to athletics, but I'm sure others in my college do. They do not seem to be a large part of college life.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's been an interesting time at OU, so far. I've found a mix of good and bad professors, but the classes have added to my knowledge.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I am unable to use them.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most of the professors I have had during my college experience were great, and encouraged me to do my best.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am currently not sure about how they are yet, as I haven't been notified/went to career services.

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.
