What is LIBRANNI?
For some of our alumni, the term “Libranni” is familiar, but to many it’s unknown. To be fair, it doesn’t exist in any dictionary. But it is a part of OAC's history. It’s actually a made-up word created by the administrators and students of the University’s three founding colleges: OAC, OVC and Mac Institute. From 1933 to 1969, their yearbook was called the Libranni, meaning “The Book of the Year”. The historical and unique word seemed like perfect fit for our annual alumni publication.
