The classes and Proffesors are very good. I really like the small class sizes, all of my classes have less than 30 students. The classes have a very friendly, open and relaxed enviornment which makes it interesting and fun to learn the subject. The classrooms are very technologically advanced and have lots of gadgets for the proffesors to use for visual aides. The classes are just as difficult as classes at universities like MSU. Unlike MSU, the professors at oakland usually get to know you, and what you are capable of and expect you to live up to what they think you are capable of.

The campus is small and very clean. The only thing i dont like about it is the lack of "life" on campus on weekends and nights. It becomes very obvious that oakland is a commuter school, on friday nights,and other times when all the businesses in the oakland center close at 5, and the library closes at 6. At these times there maybee a dozen people in the oakland center (the social gathering place at oakland), a place that is usually jammed packed.

Oakland is a school that has extremely good academics, I believe it is extremely underrated in school ratings such as

US News and World Report
Oakland is also on the upswing and growing every year. In a few years I believe oakland's social life will improve, and that it will be able to rival the major Michigan universities such as MSU, and U of M in academic reputation, and quality.

There are also rumors of Oakland getting a stadium and football team. It already has a very good basketball team, and many other sports teams.
