The O Book

Cover of the 2023-24 O Book "Write Your OU Story"

The O Book details many events, traditions, celebrations, and oddities that make OU such a unique and special place. Current students are an integral part of carrying Oglethorpe into the future.

All students are encouraged to complete the traditions in the O Book at any time during their journey at Oglethorpe and commemorate each with a photo or keepsake of the activity.  Once you have participated in 10 of the traditions in the O Book, you’ll be given a special O Pin and the important designation of an Oglethorpe Tradition Guardian at a special event each spring.

Simply complete this form when you’ve participated in any 10 traditions in the O Book.  

You can learn more about these traditions in this video from the Alumni Association. Download your own copy of the O Book to begin tracking your progress. 

Students in the Class of 2024 or 2025: If you have questions related to the way COVID may have impacted your completion of these events, please contact [email protected].
