Summer Community Celebrations

The Offices of Admission and Alumni & Parent Engagement virtually hosted regional summer celebrations for new Oxy students and their families on Saturday, August 8, 2020. 

President Elam led a kickoff with all students and parents, along with smaller geographic-based virtual meetups. If you missed any parts of the Summer Community Celebration Kickoff, you can watch the recording here. Don't forget to watch the Oxy Glee Club performance of Io Triumphe, the College's traditional fight song, as you practice at home!
