Leave your mark in Golden Grizzlies history by procuring a 12-inch by 12-inch gold colored tile in the recently renovated O’rena from the Athletics Center Gold Tile Program.

“The renovation of the O’rena hallway honors the great history of athletics at this University,” says Fleetwood Fleming, assistant athletic director for Development at Oakland University. “There are still Gold Tile opportunities for our supporters to leave their footprint and impact the lives of current and future Oakland University student-athletes.”

Launched last year, each golden tile can be personalized with up to four lines and 60 characters, with the option to include one of three available logos: the Bear Head; Pioneer Pete; or the OU Sail logo.

Tiles are $2,500 each, an additional $250 to include one of the available logos, and may be purchased using a one-time payment in full, or spread over a three-year period. Oakland faculty and staff also have to option of purchasing a tile through the University’s payroll deduction plan.

For more information on the Athletics Center Gold Tile Program, contact Fleetwood Fleming at (248) 370-3167 or ffleming@oakland.edu.
