LIBRANNI 2019 / Vol. 1 Stories


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.

The inaugural issue was released in January 2019, and was sent to over 27,600 recipients. The 24-page magazine features 10 alumni stories.
