|An OU program that puts freshmen students at the top of their academic game.
CORE (Collectively Oakland Retains Everyone) is focused on helping Freshman students achieve their academic best. This multicultural residential academic program pairs first year students with resources that focus on their specific needs, such as advising, tutoring, mentoring, career/major exploration, first year workshops and counseling. All program participants are required to live on campus during their first year.
We have all the tools you will need for success!!!

- Academic advising
- Financial-aid advising
- Campus resources support
