Students are the reason that Oakland City University exists. Scholarships are crucial to the success of students. There has never been a time when your support could aid more deserving students than now. The Scholarships for Oaks Campaign raises funds that will go directly to student scholarships.
As a model for the Christian university in the 21st Century, Oakland City University has consistently been ranked by the U.S. News & World Report as a Best College in the Midwest. Oakland City prepares its graduates to “Go Forth To Serve” in a vast array of callings including: ministry, education, business, criminal justice, science, applied mathematics, and many more. From class projects to internships, critical thinking skills to real-world problem solving, Oakland City graduates are proven leaders.
I invite you to be a part of a well-established community that cares about providing opportunities for students. I invite you to be a part of an academic community that is ready to serve the best and the brightest. We at OCU are serious about expanding knowledge in small classes, hands-on labs, and innovative instruction. We are serious about preparing our students for life and career through engaging discussions, experiential learning, and spiritual formation of our students. We expect our students to graduate with knowledge, expertise, and essential skills for a full life and successful career, but also with the Christian acumen that will help them change the world.
We want you to join us in this mission. Your participation in the Scholarships for Oaks Campaign does more than provide scholarship dollars. It keeps tuition and fees competitive and ensures that the next generation of leaders are equipped to serve Christ and others as they “Go Forth To Serve.” Help us make their dreams come true.
