This is OU

In 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. OU shares its 1,443 acres in Rochester, Michigan, with the National Historic Landmark that our founder called home. OU delivers more than 260 degree and certificate programs to 20,519 students who will join a network of nearly 100,000 alumni.
