Ohh Oakland. I would say I had a good time here at OU and sad to leave after this year. Everything is neat and organized here, and the campus is perfect sized. This school is on the rise to say the least. You will get a better education here than you would at MSU, Central, or other state schools. The application process is pretty easy, which I dont think matches up with there grading system. Pretty tough compared to other schools, don't expect to walk in, go to class, party, and get a 4.0. You definitely have to study. The campus life isn't wild and crazy screaming college students like the college life some expect, but there are a lot of students who stick around and have fun on the weekends. I think I gained the connections here in my field to start a great career.
questionMy daughter wants to get a degree in secondary mathematics which would require a lot of math classes at OU. My concern is that everyone we ask about OU, they say to take math classes at the local community college. In her case, she will need a lot of math classes and would eventually have to transfer over to the math offered at OU anyway and we are afraid that the community college wouldn't prepare her for the even harder math classes at OU later on. She has a 4.0 GPA and scored a 34 on the math portion of her ACT test. Do you think this will help her with the math classes offered directly at OU? Is the math classes just too hard? Is it the way they are taught? Language barriers? What? We haven't had anyone tell us why to shy away from the Math Department. As a parent this concerns me.
