How They Help
Academic Peer Mentors (APMs) live in the residence halls and apartments, and offer free tutoring at various locations that include Hamlin and Oak View halls. Tutor nights are held Monday-Thursday from 8 - 11 p.m. in both locations.
The APMs also host workshops and online chats in topics like time management, motivation and goal-setting. If you would like to reach an APM for support, please email OUAPM@oakland.edu or call (248) 370-3323.
APMs distribute Study Bucks to residents they "catch" studying. Everyone who earns a Study Buck is then entered into a drawing to win fun prizes and OU swag!
First-year students who live in one of OU's living-learning communities can maximize engagement in their major through special programming and academic connections with faculty staff and their peers.
Contact University Housing for details on the living-learning communities listed below. You can register to live in a living-learning community when you apply for housing online. If you've already submitted a contract and did not indicate your interest in a living-learning community, please contact our front desk at (248) 370-3570.
