Hello!

DFS is gearing up for our next virtual campus visit to Oakland University. Read on to find out how you can provide feedback/ask questions to DFS alumni and/or the OU Admissions team.

We are still collecting student responses from the Next Level Scholars Fall Survey, please take a minute to complete it today (if you haven't already), so we can better support you based on your individual needs and goals.

As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns!
