I love attending this college. My professors go out of their way to make sure that I understand the material. They help me with anything that I would need help with. That sit down before or after classes to help students get a better understanding of the material. The best educational program that I have seen. I am truly grateful to be attending such an amazing program at Oakland City University!

Oakland city university so far has been a open eye experience. It has taught me many things, for example their are people always trying to help you succeed. It is a friendly school with many amazing staff. The campus is very eco friendly and very quite. This is a benefit because it allow you to focus on your studies. My favorite part is that you make friends along the way and met people who will always be their for you.
What I like about Oakland City is that there is a welcoming environment and it is very religious based. There is plenty of ways to get involved whether it is attending chapel, going to open gym, or joining a club. Everyone knows everyone because it is such a small school. The things that I would like to see changed are the basketball program, dorms, and the cafe. I was about of the Women’s basketball team and we had some issues with the coach and many people left due to that. I plan on transferring next year due to coach issues. The dorms are just a little outdated and could use some replacement. The cafe isn’t the best. I think they could find a better catering service to serve the food.
