Oakwood University Reviews
Review 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.
My experience at Oakwood University so far has been awesome! I've never been to a campus that has so many caring hospitable teachers and students. At this school, professors actually care about your well being and may even take the time to talk to you if you allow them to. If a student is not feeling their best and a faculty or staff knows about it, they will do their best to come to the student personally. Sometimes they may even invite the student to a nice lunch or dinner to help them express their concerns! This example is only one of the many things I've encountered during my first semester here and I am proud to say that there are plenty more to come. If you never considered Oakwood University as an option, take the opportunity to experience it yourself during "Oakwood Live" (formerly known as college days) because it is a true reflection of what the University is all about.
Nothing huge! But Oakwood has the facilities for tennis, basketball, skating, track & field, swimming, racquetball, soccer, and open fields for a lot more activities! I really enjoy it. Not to mention, the Saturday night basketball games.
