Oakland City University Reviews
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 The dorms are just a little outdated and could use some replacement.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.
I love that Oakland City University is a Christian college, promoting Christian values through Christian instructors. It is very uplifting. Oakland City University is also located very close to my home.
The atmosphere is quite different here. At OCU the Professors and Staff truly care, however there are vast room for improvements all throughout the campus
