Welcome to the website of the Michigan State University Alumni Club of Oakland County.Oakland County is the home of the second largest concentration of MSU alumni in the country numbering over 40,000.

In addition to this website and our newsletters, the Oakland County Alumni Club frequently sends  out e-mails to alumni. Because of time restraints or subject matter (for example, someone has tickets available for an upcoming game), sometimes this may be the only way we can communicate the information. If you would like to be added to our growing e-mail list, click here.

The Oakland County Club is established by those alumni who have loved their experience at Michigan State University and wish to give something back to their alma mater. The Club hosts several events each year for its members as well as running the largest regional alumni club scholarship in the country.

Please visit our auction site. Proceeds from this auction will help us to enlarge our scholarship as well as provide us with the means to have more events through the year.

State of bliss

Tuesday July 25th, 2017 10:01:00 PM
Whoosh. It gets me every single time. Without fail, it takes my breath away no matter how many times I look out over the bluffs at Lake Michigan. No matter where I wander in the world, and I've wandered quite a bit, the site of the lake from the Sleeping Bear Dunes will always be one of the most beautiful sights I've set my eyes on. What makes it even better is that it's home. I mean, I don't technically live right there, but I claim everything in Michigan as my home. And there are plenty of amazing things about the Mitten State - including Spartans. Since our esteemed crew is on their Great State Road Trip, I figured I'd take one myself. I needed to come to Frankfort, Michigan to visit my sister and meet my new baby grand-nephew. I just put him down after holding him for more than an hour - time well spent. I mean, he's really adorable. Even if my sister is a Wolverine. Spartans don't care where allegiances lie - we're committed to the entire state of Michigan and all of its residents. Frankfort is just down the road from that awe-inspiring view of Lake Michigan. I had planned on heading there and writing this note while gazing at that incredible site, but the weather had different plans for me. Currently, I'm still in Frankfort sitting in my sister's restaurant waiting for the rain to stop. But, I'll get my view at some point. There's no way I'll miss that.
