Hello!

We hope your Thanksgiving break allowed for some time to rest and recharge. This week wraps up our final week of the Oakland University Virtual Visit-read on for more details!

Did you get your OU Admissions Swag Bag and letter from us? We'd love to send some thank you notes to OU - please submit a thank you note and a pic with your new swag here.

Don't forget to register and join us for the live session with OU admissions (happening tomorrow 12/2 @ 2PM). This is an optional extra component based on feedback from the MSU visit and we hope to see many of you there!
