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.

Music to my ears

Wednesday January 23rd, 2019 03:35:00 PM
I was driving home from Metro Detroit on a wintery night a few weeks ago and found myself singing loudly along to “In Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel…and I knew every single word. It’s not surprising because I’m a big fan of the song and have listened to it many times. What was surprising that I found myself singing along to song after song that came on — even ones I barely remembered hearing before. I was even singing along to songs from years before I was born.
