Oakland University Graduate Reviews

5 reviews
As an alumni of Oakland University, I can honestly say that the undergraduate education I earned from OU has been a great investment. I am employed in a county position that utilizes my undergraduate education. I was a non-traditional student and the staff always worked with me, encouraged me, and accommodated my needs. There is a top-notch staff here with over 90% of professors holding PhD's. The campus is full of a wide range of cultures, ages, and interest groups. There is an awesome basketball team and there is ALWAYS an event to attend. OU will give you the tools you need to network, help your community, travel abroad, and earn a well rounded education. The campus was rated the third safest in the United States, and It is very centrally located near the freeway as well with great food, entertainment, and shopping in a short driving distance. Oakland was the perfect school for me and I have goals to remain apart of the community there for years to come.

Nice because you can stay on campus or off campus, lots of parking available. Good cafeteria and newer or rennovated buildings all around campus.
I haven't attended Oakland for very long, but so far it's been a pleasant experience. Seems like a nice, large, clean campus with a lot of stuff to do.
