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.”
