In May 1996, the University of Oregon Department of Intercollegiate Athletics reinstituted the long dormant letter-winners club, the Order of the O. The club is for alumni who have earned a varsity letter in a NCAA-accredited sport while at Oregon.
The purpose of the Order of the O is to perpetuate the legacy and tradition of
U of O athletics. Promoting excellence and leadership of all athletic programs by fostering enduring relationships among current athletes and former letter winners.
Order of the O functions are social in nature, and while many functions are set in Eugene, the Order also stresses the importance of out-of-area members. Activities are designed to make every past student-athlete once again experience the pride of being a part of the University of Oregon.
