Hello!

The virtual visit to Oakland University continues this week! Be sure to check your email for the evaluation (it was sent yesterday afternoon) and complete it while you review the self-paced materials in Google Classroom. While you complete the evaluation, please review the mailing address we have on file for you - we have some swag bags from OU that we will be mailing to you soon!

If you are able to join us for the live session with OU admissions (happening next week on 12/2 @ 2PM) and haven't yet signed up, be sure to do that ASAP!

We hope you have a great Thanksgiving break!

NEW: OAKLAND UNIVERSITY VIRTUAL VISIT EVALUATION
Evaluations for the OU Virtual Campus visit were sent yesterday (11/23) to the email address you have on file with DRDFS. (Be sure to check spam and junk folders if you do not see it in your inbox!)

Can't find your evaluation? Since each evaluation is specific to each student, you will need to reach out to Marissa via email at mdangelo@drdfs.org or send a text to (734) 354-7274.

*Remember that the evaluation is REQUIRED for participation/attendance.*
REMINDER: DRDFS/OU LIVE WORKSHOP - REGISTER TODAY!
Based on student feedback from the MSU Visit, we'll be hosting a LIVE Zoom admissions session with OU Representatives! While not a required component of the OU Virtual Campus Visit, registration to attend the live session is required.

The live session will take place on Wednesday, December 2 from 2:00 - 3:00 PM.

ICYMI: EXPLORE CAMPUS/SELF-PACED OU MATERIALS IN GOOGLE CLASSROOM
While we know it's not the same as physically being there, virtual tours of each building on campus are available, click here to explore Oakland's campus!

The list of academic options at Oakland University is constantly growing. OU offers more than 130 undergraduate degrees and more than 135 graduate degree and certificate programs. Students can also participate in high-level research as early as their freshman year.


More materials can be found in the Google Classroom. Be sure to review them!
