*Final score

The challenge is over, but your gifts can still make a difference at OU.


Some things

just can’t be done alone

Some things require teamwork

All of us

Everybody working together

It’s that time for us to come together

To show our school pride

And to once again


How to keep score

Gifts of $1 for students or $5 or more from alumni and friends of Oakland University made between 12:01 a.m. EST Monday, February 11, 2019 and 5:00 p.m. EST Friday, February 15, 2019. Donors can donate to any fund designation of their choice at OU. Only one gift per person will count toward the challenge.

How to win

The winner is the university that tallies the most donors during the five-day standoff. The school with the most supporters by the deadline will win. Remember, an OU win will force Detroit Mercy’s mascot to don an OU jersey at the men’s basketball Metro Series game against Detroit Mercy the following week in the O’rena on OU’s campus. The winning institution will be announced during the pre-game show on Saturday, February 23, 2019 at 3 p.m. in the O’rena.
