  • History & Memorable Moments

Oakwood College was founded in 1896 as Oakwood Industrial School. The school was located on land that had previously been a plantation. Legend has it that the school was named for a stand of oak trees found on the campus. [1]

The school first opened in 1896 with 16 students. Classes were offered in various trades and skills. In 1904, the name was changed to Oakwood Manual Training School, and it was chartered to grant degrees in 1907. In 1917, the school offered its first instruction at the postsecondary level, and in that same year it changed its name to Oakwood Junior College. In 1944, the present name, Oakwood College, was adopted. The first bachelor’s degrees were awarded in 1945. Oakwood College received its initial accreditation from SACS in 1958, and in 2007, the College received approval to award graduate degrees. A special constituency meeting will be held in December 2007 to discuss and to approve a name change for the college to reflect the institution's new status. [1]

Oakwood College has been a member institution of the United Negro College Fund since 1964. [1]
