Greetings Oaksterdam Family,

It’s September and it’s back to school time. We just began our fall semesters here at OU and are excited to be here with students from all over the globe. Next semesters begin in January 2018 and should be open for enrollment next month. You can always attend our monthly seminars if you cannot get away for the 14-week long semesters. Keep in mind that in Nov. we only have 1 seminar due to Thanksgiving and our graduation ceremony and anniversary party.  

2017 is a very special year for the Oaksterdam community as it’s OU’s official 10-year anniversary cultivating leaders and providing education for the cannabis industry. Unofficially it’s been over 20 years since the Oaksterdam community and its leaders provided a safe place to medicate and education in the area.

Oaksterdam the University as well as the community, endured a lot over the past 20 years fighting for cannabis rights and freedoms. Entrepreneurs, activists, students, faculty and citizens have protested, progressed and now – years later – are starting to prosper in an industry we weren’t sure would exist.  

That is why it is so important that we celebrate this joint success this November 18th right here in the heart of Oaksterdam. Please mark this on your calendars. We will get together on the evening of the 18th and start with a graduation ceremony for all students that graduated after April of 2012 until present. Immediately following the graduation ceremony, we will have a huge 10 Year Anniversary Celebration & Awards show. We will serve dinner, entertainment, awards and everything else Oaksterdam. We have a lot of people to thank and hope you will join us for this very historic day. Please check the website and newsletter for updates.
