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.

'Tis the season

Wednesday December 13th, 2017 04:14:00 PM
"We're looking for a Fraser fir taller than 10 feet." It's how we start the conversation every single year at the Christmas tree farm we've been going to for more than a decade. That's always followed up with, "Oh right, you're the people who used to take home giant trees in a convertible." Yep. That was us. The crazy people who carted home trees, sometimes 14-feet tall, stuffed into the back of a Camaro SS convertible. It was part of our tradition. We'd cut down a ginormous tree, get it drilled and wrapped and then stuffed into the car's passenger seat. One of us would drive it home while the other would follow behind in our other car. People stared, took pictures and laughed. I like to think it was our way of bringing a little holiday cheer to the community. It's fun that even years after selling that car and using an appropriate Jeep instead, people still remember our tradition as strongly as we do. That's the great thing about traditions - even when they change, the memories never leave.
