    After four years of working, living, and breathing OU, I found my undergrad experience to be life-changing. The campus itself is beautiful and inviting, as well as the students and many of the office (Financial Aid could be nicer to students). Overall, professors provided thorough instruction, despite occasional pandering to whiny (and, in my opinion, lazy) students. Thankfully, I secured a well-paying job in the Detroit area 4 months before graduation. Unfortunately, it can be a bit disconnected from the surrounding community, and has a reputation as a commuter campus (as of 2011, only about 10% of students live on campus). However, I am excited about its future and know that it is pushing to be a top school in Michigan.

    I really loved the class sizes here, with most of them being 30-40 people I feel like the professors really care about your learning. They are available and very personable virtually whenever you need them. Although this is a commuter school, there are a lot of ways to get involved. If you go to Oakland just to go to class, you're not using its true potential and that's probably why you find it a boring school. GET INVOLVED! Find clubs to do or whatever you want because this is how you network here, and everyone is very friendly. Oakland creates a great academic environment as well as a social environment, and I think you should seriously consider this university.

    I was involved with the student newspaper for two years and it was the best experience of my life. I met so many people, learned invaluable lessons and I would do it all over again.

    The staff is helpful and when you graduate you will be able to find a job because of the opportunities you are able to have at this small school with big connections.
