1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Wade Hall (where I live) is rat and roach infested!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've never lived on campus, but should be a wonderful experience.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus housing is partially good. Some buildings are new and others are very old so it really depends on the dorm your in.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I have never lived on campus so I don't know how it really is.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Coming from living at home with constant parental supervision, living on a college campus is pretty great. The freedom to do pretty much anything within reason is always something to look forward to. The rules that have been set in place are all reasonable and set for our protection. The administration that is in charge of the dorms are genuinely nice people who care for the students who reside in the living spaces.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Housing at Oakwood varies tremendously. The campus provides two different types of on-campus housing, dorms and apartments. Holland Hall, the freshman dorm for men is well-maintained, clean and spacious. Edwards Hall, the upperclassman dorm for men is like a prison. The freshman dorms are nicer and cleaner, as opposed to the upperclassmen dorms, which are older and more worn. The most convenient dorm to classes is Carter Hall. Cater Hall is located right in the middle of campus. This makes it equidistant to all the other departments on campus. The newer dorms like Holland and Carter Hall provide a friendly and social environment. There is a study room where students can collaborate and share ideas, work on projects, or even socialize. There is also a game room where friends can watch TV, play pool or ping-pong, and participate in many other social activities. The older dorms like Edwards and Wade can be fun, too. One can often find students playing dominoes or cards right in the lobby.
