Oakland University Graduate Reviews

11 reviews
Funding opportunities could be better. Most professors are great, but the department is divided and not cooperative. The program got me where I wanted to go and I made lifelong friends and colleagues. The tuition is affordable, but I had an assistantship that paid for my credit hours and gave me a small stipend.

The students and professors are very friendly and willing to help you! There is many resources available if you’re in need. The class sizes are not too big. There is lots of ways you can get involved and make connections.
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.
