OU celebrates record undergraduate enrollment

Oakland University has increased student enrollment this fall with a 1.7 percent increase, marking the 14th consecutive year of growth at the institution.

The university’s population of 19,379 students, including those enrolled in the newly opened Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine, “reaffirms that quality academic programs taught by world-class faculty have made Oakland University a first-choice among our student population,” Oakland President Gary Russi said.

Part of Oakland’s continued enrollment growth is also attributed to the 1,891 new transfer students who came to the university this fall and an undergraduate population of 15,838, the largest in OU’s history.

Excerpt:  With its overall student population steadily rising, OU continues to expand its presence in Macomb County. The opening of the new Anton/Frankel Center this fall helped raise the total enrollment at the university’s Macomb locations to 1,367 students, a 22 percent increase over 2010 figures.
