So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31-32 ESV)

OC is at the intersection of faith and learning, where we encourage students to discover how to think independently, critically, and creatively. To foster these skills in our students, we provide opportunities to learn from experts in various fields and disciplines. Discovery events are Ethos events where faith and learning intersect and where the message of Jesus is proclaimed.

We also encourage students to pursue hands-on experiences that challenge them to apply their learning in many ways.

Some examples of Discovery events include:

  • McBride Lectures
  • McGaw Lectures
  • OC Lectureships
  • Intergenerational Faith Center Dialogues
  • International Culture Nights
  • Movies about Christian faith
  • OC Excursions

*Most discovery events are sponsored by the University and open to the entire student body. All other discovery events will be approved on a case by case basis.

*Students may receive up to five kudos per semester in this category.
