Oakwood Hall

by Hannah Brown | Feb 08, 2017

Oakwood Hall is one of the two suite style residence halls on campus. It has three floors, central air, and an elevator. Oakwood is co-ed by suite. Each suite has two double rooms that share a bathroom and a common area. There is a front desk in the lobby of Oakwood, and a kitchen down the hall. Oakwood has a great room that has a fireplace, couches, chairs, and tables, a pool table, a ping-pong table, a TV, and a piano.

In Oakwood, there are five Residents Assistants, each assigned to about six rooms. Every night from 7 to 11, an RA is on duty at the front desk. The front desk is where residents can get gaming stuff, movies, or games to use in the great room, or stuff to use in the kitchen, like pots, pans, cookie sheets, spoons, spatulas, etc.

Every year, Oakwood puts on the Rave2Save. The Rave is a dance, and all students are welcome. The event supports a different charity each year, and students can donate something like canned goods, non-perishable items, or unused personal care items in exchange for a t-shirt. At the event, they will have dancing, games, snacks, and decorations.

Oakwood is a great place to live. A few years ago, Oakwood was a 24 hour quiet residence hall, but has since changed its policies, and has normal quiet hours now. It’s a fun hall, with great RAs who have interesting and enjoyable programs.
