4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The class sizes are great, not too big and not too small. The Biology department is the best department filled with teachers who have the knowledge and desire to give the students the knowledge as well. The quality is great, however, it would be great to take out teachers who are near 70 and hire teachers who are young, vibrant and have a new view on the subject matter.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The alumni are awesome and the opportunities that we are exposed to are amazing. Recruiters love coming to Oakwood to recruit medical, dental and grad students.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I personally feel very safe on campus and in the surrounding areas.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms is okay. I've lived in almost every dorm available to women. The best option is Carter but there is the issue of wifi in the basement. Being an upperclassman gives you opportunities to live in West Oaks which is an excellent option with freedom and adult living. The cost is expensive since it is a private school but it is worth it for the experience. The deans are caring and will try their best to help you out in any financial situations.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love my institution and the students that it produces. I love the Christian atmosphere and the way that the faculty and staff encourage and help their students. I would definitely choose my school again because I have met amazing individuals and have created long-lasting friendships.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have typical fraternities, they're veggie fraternities. They aren't recognized outside of the school.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There isn't a football or track team, but the basketball team is very good.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like the school so far, I don't like the curfew but overall it's a good school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school has provided me with nothing but the best. Tuition is a bit on the expensive side only because the school is located in Alabama and I live in New Jersey. Everyone there likes to have fun and loves God. It is a Christ-Centered school, with a positive, welcoming, and homey atmosphere.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I never really thought about it security is there but there hasn't really been any problems where we really needed security

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't really like the dorms aside from the freshman Girl's dorm, the other dorms are lacking and since im a male i do not benefit from that the freshman male dorms feel cramped and are far away from everything on campus and the dorm is old , the upperclassman dorm looks really bad and empty almost the reflection of emptiness and is also need to be updated the female upperclassmen dorm i also hear is worse for wear , they need to seriously renovate the other dorms

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: They get the Job done but they can't compare to alot of other universities as they are not really big or have state of the art equipment

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is an experience it can get boring at times since it's basically isolated and you can't get around without a car but its a good place to focus. Food wise it is lacking as it is a vegetarian campus, but other than that it is a good experience

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes are great not too crowded not too scarce, professors are very understanding and helpful.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: My school doesn't support Greek Life due to our Christian values

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
