Also known as Oakland University (Rochester, MI). Often confused with Ohio University, Oaklahoma University, and often thought to be located in Oakland, California.

Originally established as a branch school of Michigan State University, becoming independent, and eventually becoming known for its proximity to many of the major automotive manufacturers and suppliers.

No football team, but sorta known for basketball and swimming.
"Have you been to OU?"

"No, I've never been to Oaklohoma."

"Not Oaklahoma, Oakland."

The University of Oklahoma, located in Norman, OK. While most people think that all OU has going for it is its football team, it's actually a very reputable school. Has the best meteorology program in the country (and quite possibly the world) as well as a very well respected engineering program. Also, OU is the only college in the country to have an online information network containing old tests, job opportunities, and many other features. Finally, it is one of the nicest looking campuses you'll ever see. While OU and UT have a very large rivalry, I see no point to it.
Don't overlook OU when you apply to college.

Another name for Ohio University} , located in Athens . Often confused with OSU by non-Ohioans. Nationally recognized as the number 2 party school in the country, but with a pretty good education to boot. OU's Scripps School of Journalism, often ignored under the keg parties and Halloween fiascos, is one of the world's top-rated journalism programs. Other than journalism, OU mostly has incredible parties and a crazy amount of Greek life to offer as reward to students forced to live in Southeast Ohio for their collegiate lives. Also home of one of the worst collegiate football teams EVER, so bad in fact, even the Coach Solich drinks heavily.
"I go to OU"
"Oh really? How long can you hold a kegstand?"
