Welcome to the The Honors College at Oakland University! We create an environment for those who want to achieve, and support your ambitions. We are ambitious for The Honors College itself and for you. About 5% of undergraduates across the United States graduate from an honors college - making graduating from the Honors College potentially a life-changing opportunity!
We at Oakland support you to become one of that top group of graduates. We draw on the full range of Oakland’s faculty, which means you can access the expertise of an entire comprehensive doctoral/research university. Our classes are small, personal and focused on success.
Oakland University students who are also in the Honors College are found right across the university; you will have Honors College friends and colleagues in every major, every department, every discipline. Many of these Honors College students are leaders on campus and outside the university as well.
We support personal excellence and create team excellence. A Nobel Prize winner, a renowned designer and a national Poet Laureate serve as Honorary Esteemed Fellows of the Honors College, recognizing our celebration and support of human achievement.
Building on our past and looking to your future you won't just talk about what it is to be the best you'll show it -- through the work we support you to undertake and through the things you'll achieve. You'll also have fun! No one should ever discount the importance of enjoyment in the pursuit of achieving great things! 

If you'd like to be a member of this fabulous group of students, whether you're planning to be a doctor, an engineer, an artist, a nurse, a teacher, a psychologist, a business leader, a musician, or anything else, whether you know for sure or aren't quite decided yet, give us a call or email us, and we can arrange a visit for you that will show you the great possibilities!
Looking forward to welcoming all incoming freshmen to the Honors College and your home in Oak View Hall in fall 2015!

With all best wishes,
