This is OU

In spirit of the words of Andrew Carnegie, Matilda Dodge Wilson donated her estate in 1957 to provide "ladders upon which the aspiring can rise," establishing what is now Oakland University. The OU campus has 1,443 acres with the historic address of Rochester, Michigan, and includes the National Historic Landmark, Meadow Brook Hall.

Grounded in teaching, service and research, Oakland University offers more than 270 degree and certificate programs to aspiring minds from its large campus spanning two thriving cities (Auburn Hills and Rochester Hills) in southeast Michigan. OU's distinctive educational approach connects 20,519 students, over 100,000 alumni and its surrounding communities to the unique and diverse opportunities within the region and beyond. OU students are given what they need to build a solid academic foundation to be prepared for unlimited possibilities.
