The possibilities are endless at Oakland University, where majors range from the traditional to the progressive. With an array of more than 142 bachelor's degrees, students in disciplines from accounting and art history to health sciences and engineering are pursuing their dreams at OU.

More than 2,000 students live on OU's beautiful campus and enjoy wireless internet, cable TV, lounges with big-screen TVs, free parking, and free laundry facilities. On-campus dining options include an all-you-can-eat dining halls and a mall-style food court. The campus boasts more than 200 student organizations, including multicultural, religious, and political groups as well as fraternities and sororities and academic associations. Rochester, named one of the nation's top 10 places for lifelong learning by U.S. News & World Report, is the ideal college town.
