The Students at OAC are #AggieProud and willing to poke fun at themselves to prove it


November 24, 2014 – OAC Aggies (SFOAC) at the University of Guelph launch a campaign celebrating the traditions and stereotypes of the OAC Family.


Started in 2013, shooting for the “OAC Misconception” videos began at the annual Tractor Tug for Tots fundraiser. A fitting event, as it often confuses students outside of the OAC, making them ask why are there tractors on campus. Videos already have over 12000 views on Facebook and 3000 views on Youtube.  


Whether it is class in a barn, two stepping, aggie jackets, pig roast or any number of OAC traditions, these experiences are best understood by the OAC family.


For that reason, three videos were created, highlighting the top “misconceptions”, events and traditions of the OAC. The intention of the videos is to shed light on why these experiences are so important to Aggie culture and to encourage those interested to learn more.


Filled to the brim with fun traditions, the videos are meant to stir pride in current and past students, and encourage them to share via social media.


The hope of SFOAC (Student Federation for the Ontario Agricultural College) is that prospective students will consider attending the OAC and the videos will explain OAC traditions to current UofG students.
