    The large campus has lots to do in only a 10 or 15 minute walk. There's the Meadow Brook Hall/Theatre, which has many awesome performances throughout the year, sometimes even with big-name music artists. There is the recreation center (which is completely, 100% free to use), take a walk around the lake or through the campus, or head off-campus to Applebee's right down the road, Great Lakes Crossing Mall (and its new aquarium), or go see a show at the Palace of Auburn Hills. There are 100+ student organizations to check out, fun events planned for students all throughout the year, guest speakers and career-related opportunities like internships or career fairs, and more! There are also dances like homecoming and prom, plus contest-like events in the residence halls and apartments. Or you could just chill in the Oakland Center or the Kresege Library, or take the time to meet the other students and find a friend group or study group. There is always something to do, whether on campus or not.

    Basketball is the main sport at Oakland. Going to the games is always a lot of fun. However with Oakland being a commuter school, campus is usually dead on the weekends. Surrounding Oakland are many malls and places to go. If you have a car on campus it is fun to go out and explore the area.

    There have a shuttle that takes you to the mall, Great Lakes Crossing on the weekends. They also have oncampus events but they're lame with just a big crowd of random people standing, looking crazy.

    Get involved! There are numerous clubs and sports that are always looking for people to join. Work with the Oakland radio station, or on the paper. There is something for everyone.

    For fun, I love to explore campus and the history. Oakland University's land was donated by the Dodge family (founder of Dodge motor company) and the mansion they lived in is still here on campus. Tours of the mansion is free to OU students and they hold a ball in the mansion every years.

    I usually go to the Rec Center and workout or play some table tennis. I've gotten good! Not too much stuff going on, but the Student Program Board makes sure that you will not be too bored while at OU.
