Oakwood University Reviews
I am a junior at Oakwood University in Huntsville, AL and I love being there! Going to Oakwood was the best decision I could have made for my education. The campus is full of love, diversity, excitement, and Black Excellence. If I could change anything, I would suggest upgrading equipment and remodeling some of the older buildings. Overall I am very satisfied with my Oakwood Experience.
This is my first year at Oakwood University so far this is the best school ever, I feel so comfortable around people and on the campus in general. My mentor Toson Knight was the president here once he got me and a couple of my other friends into the school. Oakwood is a great place and I recommend anyone who wants a bright future to attend Oakwood University!
The Freshman dormitories, Carter Hall and Holland Hall are the 2 best residence halls on campus! One reason, they are newer and have more perks than the upperclassmen dorms do. Carter hall (freshman girls) has a kitchen where students can cook, air conditioning in every room, the option of a suite or a regular double room, and an updated security system.
