This photo was taken right after a short snowfall. The clouds opened up to a beautiful winter sunset of pinks and purples.

Winter 2017

Oakland University Winter Photo Contest

Students submitted their #ThisIsOU 2017 winter photo for a chance to be featured and win some OU bear bling

More than 60 students participated in Oakland University's seasonal photo contest this February, showing off their photography skills and sharing their appreciation for OU's beautiful campus with upward of 40,000 Facebook followers. 

Included above are the winners of the 2017 Winter Photo Contest. See all submissions on the oaklandu Facebook page. Predominant themes were night shots, and of course, the one and only Elliott Tower.

Oakland University's social media team hosts a photo contest each fall and winter, generating hundreds of student photographs each year that get placement in top marketing slots such as the home page, the marquee at the corner of Walton and Adams, and various print and digital publications.
