The Petrel Pledge is a shared responsibility and commitment to the health and well-being of the Oglethorpe community.

The COVID-19 Handbook outlines the protocols, policies, and procedures for a COVID-conscious campus environment.  Members of the OU community are expected to adhere to the handbook as part of their “Petrel Pledge.”

The COVID-19 Task Force also released a Campus Protection Guide that introduced three protection phases for campus operations. Oglethorpe is operating in the orange phase of its Campus Protection Guide in Spring 2021. Campus will be open only to on-campus residents, commuter students attending classes on campus, and authorized personnel. These individuals are known as Petrels Authorized for Campus Access (PACAs).
