Alumni to return for golf challenge and OU Night at Comerica Park
By Samantha Skovran, media relations intern
The Oakland University Alumni Association (OUAA) plans to gather its alumni for two events this summer: the OUAA Golf Challenge and OU Night at Comerica Park.
The OUAA connects Oakland alumni to their alma mater, and also provides services and benefits such as career support, networking activities, volunteer programs, and events to enhance involvement with OU after graduation.
Also, alumni can have an impact on current students through donations to the scholarship support programs, advocacy, and mentoring. To date, the OUAA has awarded more than $1 million in scholarship support.
There are no membership costs to be part of OUAA.Visit oualumni.com
