Welcome

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.

A thankful heart

Wednesday November 26th, 2014 03:13:00 PM
Ahh...Thanksgiving. The day Americans have put aside to stuff ourselves silly, watch football and, oh yeah, give thanks for what we have. As you sit down at your feast tomorrow, you might give thanks for a turkey that's not dry or gravy that isn't lumpy. You might give thanks that you're not sitting next to your drunk uncle-or maybe that you are. Chances are likely that you'll also give thanks for the things that really matter-family, friends, love, freedom and health. This year, I'm especially grateful just to be here. After going through a serious cardiac event last January and having my life saved by my defibrillator, just being here is a very good thing. I'm thankful for my device, my MSU-trained doctor, the U-M hospital system, nurses, technology, research-the list goes on and on. Without any one of those things, my outcome would have been completely different.

Randy Hillard: 100 Percent Preventable

Wednesday November 26th, 2014 02:34:00 PM
Stage 4 Metastatic Adenocarcinoma of the Gastric Antrum-my wife says that I cried when I heard the pathology report after my gastrectomy. I do not remember that but, I am a physician, so I knew what the diagnosis meant. I do remember, though, what I was thinking later when my gallows humor kicked in, "Great. Now I have a fatal cancer. It is not even one of the more popular cancers. And it was 100 percent preventable."
