Petrels for Professors

This campaign ended on April 27, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Oglethorpe University by clicking here!

Petrels for Professors is about YOU (alums) and supporting FACULTY who made an impact in your life. A quote from one alum represents how many graduates feel about Oglethorpe faculty: 

"Thank you for preparing me to be a thinker in today's society, for recognizing (before I did) how my abilities and interests would be best suited, and for helping me understand who I am and who I want to be. Thank you for inspiring me!”  – A grateful OU graduate

Oglethorpe professors foster the interactions and relationships that transform students' lives. From class debates or suggestions to overcome a setback, from discussions about majors and career paths to connections for internships or employment, professors are in large part the heart and soul of the OU experience.

Who's the professor you recall most vividly from your student days—your mentor, guide and inspiration?

Please thank a beloved OU professor by making a gift in their honor or memory. Your gift will enable a professor to impact students' lives by conducting additional research, attending a symposium, engaging students in a class project, adopting new tools for teaching, and preparing students for their promising futures.

Help us achieve 30 alumni donors in 30 days by making your gift today. Thank you for investing in OU professors and students!
