Passing the torch

Have you ever dreamed of going to the Olympics?

A group of Oxford College Alumni Board (OCAB) members (a few of us are in the picture at left) did just that Saturday night as they volunteered for the 2nd Annual Oxford Olympics. The Oxford Olympics, which is the brain child of OCAB member Rhiannon Hubert 05Ox 07C, is a new Oxford Orientation tradition that brings together all incoming freshmen in a battle of residence halls to win the coveted title of best hall.

The students showed their skill in a relay tricycle race, tug-of-war, Dooley, Eagle, Zebra (a version of rock/paper/scissors) and a sing-off of the alma mater and the Emory fight song.

OCAB members and their families gave out water/snacks and staffed the first aid station. Luckily we had no injuries. It was a lot of fun and great exposure for the recruitment of potential legacy students!

  1. That's Great!! We did sort of the same thing back in 1979 the first week of school. The dorms against each other. It always came down to Bonnell vs Stone!
