THIS IS AN IMAGINARY SCENARIO, a vision, if you please. The characters, events, and conditions in this account were created to convey a glimpse of the potential and possibilities at Oakwood College. The inspiration, motivation, and details for the vision were provided by gifted administrators, faculty, staff, students, Board members, alumni, and other friends of Oakwood College. The realization of this scenario--in whole or part--is based on a firm faith in the Providence of God and commitment to the vision. This account is about the observations and perspectives of Kevin, a typical student attending Oakwood Adventist University (OAU), formerly Oakwood College, an institution of higher education, located in Huntsville, Alabama.   The year is 2005.

Kevin considers attending graduate school at OAU. While the degree in business is relatively new, it is backed by a strong program.
