Humans of Oakland University: A look into life on campus

Oakland University is a great place to hang out and meet new people. It is a place always busy with activity. With so many students, there’s a good chance that someone can see a new face every day.

Students at Oakland have created a website called Humans of Oakland University, much like a New York photographer’s Humans of New York. Basically, what it does is captures the essence of those who spend time at Oakland in a photo, with a brief quote or short story.

Participating in this project, I came across two students who were willing to help me out with the project. Their photos and quotes are below.


Aurielle Sparling, student:

“I like anything creative – writing, drawing, music. It lets me be me. Whatever I’m doing, as long as I’m being creative, I feel at home and I feel like myself.”


Kellie Fullan, student:

Fullan likes to spend her free time in the Oakland Center. “I always find a friend to talk to here. Having someone to laugh and joke around with makes time go by faster.”
