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.

Rock on

Wednesday August 24th, 2016 06:00:00 PM
My to-do list yesterday probably looked like a lot of people's lists-some writing, a bit of editing, a couple of meetings, responding to emails and working on some projects. Oh yeah, and painting a rock. I'm guessing there weren't many people with that on their list - except four of my #TeamCABS coworkers. We weren't just painting any rock. We painted The Rock. You know the one: The huge boulder on Farm Lane that is steeped in campus tradition and covered in thousands of coats of paint. We five Spartans, who all graduated some time ago (some of us much longer ago than others, ahem) broke out our brushes on a beautiful early morning and painted The Rock for our first time. Technically, two of us had kind of helped once before. But the help consisted of bringing snacks and watching the real artist do his work rather than doing any actual painting. But this time, guided by another talented artist who wisely made stencils, we channeled our inner Renoir (or maybe Warhol) and got to work. We had a video shoot planned in which The Rock had a starring role. (I can't wait to share the final video with you next week. My colleagues are uber talented so I know it's going to be great!)
