How They Help

Academic Peer Mentors (APMs) live in the residence halls and apartments, and offer free tutoring at various locations that include Hamlin and Oak View halls. Tutor nights are held Monday-Thursday from 8 - 11 p.m. in both locations.

The APMs also host workshops and online chats in topics like time management, motivation and goal-setting. If you would like to reach an APM for support, please email OUAPM@oakland.edu or call (248) 370-3323.

Get Rewarded

APMs distribute Study Bucks to residents they "catch" studying. Everyone who earns a Study Buck is then entered into a drawing to win fun prizes and OU swag!

A new initiative from the Academic Peer Mentors: APM Loyalty Cards
Ten stamps on your card = a prize for you!

How do I earn a stamp? 

  • Attend an APM program
  • Attend APM Tutor Nights
  • Reach out to an APM with an academic support question or request for tutoring
  • Come to an organized study session
  • Bring a graded assignment to an APM for review
  • Attend an FYE Field Trip
     

The fine print:

  • APM Loyalty cards can be obtained from any APM.
  • Only an APM can stamp your card. However, you may have multiple APMs stamp your card – you are not limited to only one staff member!
  • There is a new card each month, and stamps from a previous card do not roll over to the following month.
  • Loyalty Cards must be turned in to an APM on the last day of the month by 5 p.m. to be eligible for a prize. 

 

As always, if you have any questions, reach out your APM or visit us at oakland.edu/housing/ouapm.
