The Honors College
Welcome to the Honors College!
The Honors College at Oakland University is one of the most established honors colleges in the nation, and was founded on the principles set out by Matilda and Alfred Wilson when they donated their entire Meadow Brook estate to establish Oakland University. Those principles are that aspirational and talented young people benefit from the personal and individual interest of high-quality university faculty and staff. We provide such an environment for students, assisting them to excel in all their endeavors.
