Learn how you can make a difference in the Oglethorpe community
The Oglethorpe Parents Leadership Council (PLC) consists of a group of committed parents of current Oglethorpe students who are dedicated to the advancement of the university.
See the list of Parent Donors.
Student engagement with alumni is catalyzed by our official ambassador program–Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow (STAT). Created in 2015, OU’s best students have been selected to serve in this capacity with the Alumni Relations Office. These students are highly involved in planning each of our signature class-oriented events (the Oglethorpe Tradition Guardian Ceremony for freshman, Jacobs Legacy Celebration for sophomores, Ring Ceremony for juniors, and Carillon Ceremony for seniors). Many alumni events will also feature STAT hosts!
Graduates of the Class of 2017 have continued an established tradition of senior class philanthropy at Oglethorpe University. We are pleased to recognize the following graduates for their contributions to the 2017 Senior Campaign.
The President’s Advisory Council is a body of community members appointed by the President of Oglethorpe University to offer thought leadership to the President on various matters affecting the University. Free from fiduciary decision-making and the responsibility of overseeing the day-to-day operation of the University, the President’s Advisory Council functions as a “sounding board,” a place for the President to test ideas and receive feedback.
The Council meets two or three times annually for an afternoon of discussion that begins with lunch. Council members serve three-year terms and are eligible for reappointment.
