LIBRARY GUIDE TO First-Year Experience


The first year of college presents a lot of changes--and many questions to go with that!  We at Kresge Library are happy to be a part of your transition into life at Oakland University, and we are here for you whenever you need help!  

Below are some of the resources you might find yourself needing as you begin your year.  My job is to help connect you with the information you need, so if you can't find the answer on our site, please contact me!  No question is too big or too small.  I look forward to meeting you and working with you over the next year!

With best wishes for an exciting and fulfilling year,
Katie Greer
First-Year Experience Librarian
