Oakland University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (16)
Oakland university Does not offer course equivalencies through programs like co-op or Interning. A lot of knowledge is gathered through working in a career that is similar to class applications. I found this to be very disappointing as a student at Oakland
Oakland University offered a wonderful environment for students to strive and learn about their degree of choice. I was able to involve myself in the Psychology Department and assist in research as well as student activities. Their curriculum prepared me well enough to continue my education for a Masters Degree which I will be continuing with at the University of Michigan this coming fall.
Has and amazing yearlong teaching program and the history professors were outstanding and helpful. I always enjoyed going to class and learned a lot at Oakland University. The Step program prepares you for teaching and is highly competitive. They are also affiliated with the IB program and I feel I have gotten a lot out of my education
The health science program can be quite rigorous depending on your concentration but it will greatly prepare you for grad school. In fact, I will soon begin the doctor of physical therapy program at Oakland University. I feel confident in my ability to succeed thanks to my undergraduate experience.
While a college degree is crucial, students should also place a high importance on getting real world job experience. Actually working in different occupations helps a great degree when it comes to developing character and you will learn things that you could never learn in school.
The political science program at OU was a lot better than I expected. The professors made themselves available, and the program offered lots of extracurricular activities to get to know the students in the program
I met some of the best professors and friends through my college. They have expanded my social circle and my professional network.
College is a necessary evil. Yes, the classes suck, the homework sucks, and more than likely the professors suck as well. But not having a degree sucks even more. So suck it up and get that degree!!
Great school if you are willing to committ to getting involved. You can gain leadership experience easily, but most students don't take advantage of these opportunities. Even if you commute, stay on campus and do something.
Teachers and academic program were good, administrative organization is terrible, next to impossible to see a counselor in the school of business. Convenient location, rather overpriced. Beautiful campus.
