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.

Swing for the fences

Wednesday September 20th, 2017 06:31:00 PM
Finally. After working late for the second night in a row, I was ready for some food, a walk with my dog and some mindless television. I just needed my glasses to read the mail. My glasses - that were in my purse, along with my wallet and other things I needed. My purse - that wasn't in my bag where it was supposed to be. Which only meant one thing - I left it at the office. Sigh. There went my evening plans. "So You Think You Can Dance" would have to wait. Of course, my keys to my office were also in my purse, behind two locked doors. After swinging by my boss's house to borrow her key, I thought, "Well, it's late so at least I'll be able to park close." Well, maybe not. There was clearly some sorority thing going on (based on all the Greek letters and mermaid outfits) and every spot was filled. My short trip to the office turned into a much longer one since I had to park so far away. On top of that, I still had to swing by Meijer (which is never as easy as it sounds) because somehow, I was out of dog food. Plus, I had to pick up a photo enlargement to replace the one I trimmed incorrectly while putting it in a new frame. I needed a new frame to replace the broken one knocked to the ground by a colleague who jokingly pounded on the wall we share.
