About

We at the Oakland University Journalism Department’s News Bureau are a group of dedicated journalism students committed to the coverage of Oakland University and surrounding counties in southeastern Michigan.  Here is where we are given the opportunity to create our own assignments, do our own research and experience what it is like to work in a real-life newsroom.  We have a passion for writing, a knack for grammar and an unwavering dedication to telling the truth.

You can contact us at:
