#ThisIsOU

#ThisIsOU is the officially recognized hashtag for all things Oakland University. Influencers use #ThisIsOU to share OU pride and pictures, promote events and student orgs, show what’s happening in the classroom, and other musings that Golden Grizzlies would appreciate.

@Michelleleona_

What a cool photo of the @rha4ou #grizzpose car at the end of the night! In the shadow of Elliott Tower, it shows the generous (and perhaps frustrated) spirit of OU students.
