What does it mean to “Be Orange”?  November 11th, 2013




Welcome to “Be Good. Be Orange.”!  This blog is a Phronesis project devoted to exploring, developing, and challenging what it means to “Be Orange”, or an OSU Beaver.

We believe that “Being Orange” means being an active citizen of the OSU community.  We perform our “Orangeness” in our everyday actions and engagement with the world.  At this blog, we encourage OSU students, faculty, staff, alumni, family, and friends to reflect the values outlined in the Oregon State Strategic Plan: accountability, diversity, integrity, respect, and social responsibility.

In the 2013 Winter term, students in Dr. Stephanie Jenkins‘ “Introduction to Ethics” (PHL 205) class completed reflections about what it means to be a part of the OSU community.  They began the process of defining “Being Orange” and we hope you will join the conversation.  Please tell us your stories about what it means for YOU to Be Orange!

  • What values do you associate with being “Orange”?
  • What do you want it to mean to “Be Orange”?
  • How do you make the world Orange?
