A small town in Louisiana. Oakdale is a very racist and close-minded town. There are a handful of good people in the town. The high school is absolutely horrible, with mediocre teachers and gross cliques. The elementary and middle schools are ok. The town itself is pretty, but there's nothing for teenagers to do but drive around pointlessly and get drunk or do drugs.
"Say man, didn't you used to live in Oakdale, Louisiana?"
"Don't remind me! I hated that place!'
