The Gold Pages

The purpose of the Oakland University Gold Pages is to highlight the extraordinary accomplishments of Oakland University alumni entrepreneurs and business owners and to provide the OU community with the opportunity to consider supporting OU graduates when they are shopping for goods and services. Alumni-owned businesses included on the site can expect to receive increased visibility and promotion, with minority and women-owned businesses receiving a special designation. Participating businesses will receive a special digital badge to include on their website, and alumni with a physical storefront will receive a special decal that will showcase their participation in the program. 

Interested in being considered for inclusion in The Gold Pages? Please complete the brief questionnaire.

Submissions are reviewed periodically, and our office will reach out with next steps. Questions? Please contact Amy Olind, Assistant Director of Alumni Engagement, at [email protected].

Benefits of including your business in The Gold Pages:

  • The opportunity to elevate your brand, increase awareness, and otherwise elevate your company profile
  • Receive special shout outs on OU Alumni Association social media channels (9,000+ total followers)
  • The chance to receive a highlight in our Alumni E-Newsletter which reaches over 66,000 alumni
  • …and more!
