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.

Go Green! Go White! Go Sing!

Wednesday July 29th, 2015 04:40:00 PM
My 14-year-old self stood next to the piano in front of more than 100 high-school girls. My teacher told me to sing a series of notes to find my range and then he would see how well I could hold a simple melody. With sweaty palms and a racing heart, I looked out at the class (after all, who is more judgmental than high-school girls?) and thought, "What in the heck did I get myself into? This was NOT a good idea." I had never sung in front of anyone before and had zero confidence in my ability, yet there I was, center stage during the first day of my third-hour class. Earlier in my freshman year I had a pretty bad falling out with my best friend. Some other friends, in a kind effort to bring me into their fold, suggested that I sign up for girls' chorus because it was a lot of fun and a great way to meet new people. So I did. Turns out, it really wasn't a good idea - it was a GREAT idea. When I look back at my high-school days, many of my best memories, and best friends revolve around the vocal music program. At my school, it was a really big program about 500 students involved - the girls' chorus, a select girls' choir, a male chorus, a mixed choir and a select ensemble of 20 students. Other than the male chorus, I was lucky enough to be a part of all of them.
