Oakwood University Reviews
Review Oakwood University
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.
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.
Oakwood University has a lot of strengths and weaknesses that cause attending here to be a double edged sword. The students and faculty members are fantastic people with unique backgrounds and experiences. The programs offered here are up to par or excellent. The major problems with attending Oakwood is the on campus food needs great improvement, financial services and account services need a better system, and living conditions are just okay.
