Oakland University Reviews
Oakland University is booming, tons of new students each year, diversity growing, and the campus itself! Great opportunities exist at OU, but I would love to see some more great professors who make the learning journey easier and enjoyable. Although great professors already exist, I have had personal experience along with my friends where struggling through a semester is what we deal with; sometimes even retaking a class! There are tons of opportunities to be involved in this great community, which is alway exciting. I have met great professors, staffs, and friends. I enjoy being a student at OU but minor changes in professors should do the trick!
I recently visited Oakland University and I really liked it a lot! The campus was beautiful and was very easy to get around. They have a lot of amenities for students all over the campus, especially freshman including gyms game rooms, hang out rooms and many events. They have staff and faculty to help you in any way you need whether it is homework, term exams, or you just need someone to talk to. I also really liked the housing. They normally put all of the freshman in one hall together so you can become close with people and make friends that will last you throughout your college experience. Over all, I thought Oakland University was a place that I could see myself potentially going to next fall!
My time at Oakland University has been enjoyable. I've met so many like minded students throughout my time spent on campus and in my classes as well as professors that have supported me on my journey towards my degree. Thanks to the support of those same professors, I was able to go on two study abroad programs, one of which was actually completely free! The school has been rapidly changing with the additions of new dorms and building enhancements as of late, but I'm excited to see what OU will look like very soon!
