Current Exhibit: Growth at Oakland University

March 3-June 21, 2014, Lobby of Kresge Library

Oakland University has grown dramatically since it opened its doors to students in 1959: from 570 students the first year to over 20,000 in 2013-2014; from 3 original buildings to over 40 across the 1500 acres that comprise the OU property. With growth came exciting opportunities and perplexing challenges for OU administration, faculty, staff and students. Members of the OU community have all experienced the impact of OU’s growth first hand. This exhibit explores some of its aspects.
