Party Scene: The night light is calm, and quiet. Students are busy going to the library and studying in small groups. Saturday night is fun and exciting.

Athletics: I wish we had a better gym with more seating. A lot of people like to come to the basketball games but with minimal seating it is very hard to do so. Plus being athletic and loving excersise i would want a better facility with better weights and other machinery.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have a had a great time with all the friends and mentors I have made during my year there. Since it is a HBCU, It has a lot of history and culture within its walls. It was mind opening to learn more about my race and ethnicity and how it pertains to our society today.

I wouldn't choose this school all over again because I don't repeat the past.

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.
