Every Fall, Oakwood University hosts Oakwood Live! , where high school seniors come to campus, excited to learn everything they can about life at Oakwood. Prospective students come from all over the United States and Canada. Some groups are able to travel by air to Huntsville, but the majority travel in cars, vans, and buses with their chaperones.
Over the long weekend, October 10 to 13, our guests will be immersed in the academic culture and day-to-day life of the Oakwood student. Activities include visiting academic departments, participating in social activities such as a scavenger hunt and basketball games, and a highly anticipated concert featuring Oakwood University’s choirs.
Prospective students and their chaperones will get a glimpse, if only for a moment, the coveted “Oakwood Experience” we all talk about. During their time here, potential students also receive a foretaste of dorm life, as they share rooms with current students who have volunteered to share their space in an effort to help give soon-to-be students the full OU experience.
A full day of spiritual enrichment is planned for Sabbath, October 12, including the sermon during Divine Worship by President Leslie Pollard, at the Oakwood University Church. Saturday night will feature several carnival-style activities, a basketball game and skating.
