We love connecting with our dynamic alumni! From participation in Senior Advisory to reunions to catching up at a basketball game to cheer on our Hawks, we always have time for our alums!

  • What is your favorite way that being an Oakwood student has affected your life in college and after?
  • How is college life and its general atmosphere compared to Oakwood?
  • Is college a big jump from high school?
