This app will aim to provide the best experience for everyone, but we need your help! We’re looking for students, professors and admin staff who may be interested in providing us with their opinion so that we can create the best app ever. 💪 😁 If you have 10 minutes to spare, will you please do me a favour and fill in this survey: https://forms.gle/s6dHd8SY4HKV2rBQ9 🙌 Thank you!
In 1959 my mother was the very first student admitted to Oakland University. Her student number was quite literally 000001. Fast forward sixty-two years and her namesake grandson’s acceptance letter has arrived.
