First Year Advising Center

As a first-year college student, it’s time for you to define who you are, who you want to be, and explore your true potential. The First Year Advising Center encourages self-discovery and supports new students as they transition to life at Oakland University. Here, we empower you to take your first steps into the future.

Important Information:

  • Quick question? Chat with experienced student leaders through FYAC Chat.
  • Use the Golden Grizzly Guide as your go-to resource for all things OU. Find out what you need to do over the summer to get ready to start this fall.
  • Join us this summer for the College Success Series.  Come for one workshop or all of them to learn about ways to be a successful, involved Grizzly.
