Oakland University (OU), located in the cities of Auburn Hills and Rochester Hills, offers its students 270 degree and certificate programs. Known as a student-centered, doctoral research institution with a global perspective, OU has plenty to extend to its over 20,000 enrolled scholars. When students aren’t busy conducting research, gaining global perspectives, competing in Division I athletics – Go Golden Grizzlies!, leading student organizations, or performing on stage, there’s a sprawling campus, spanning two thriving cities to enjoy.
