Be an OTC Sock Star


At the OTC Foundation, our goal is to help as many students as possible every year through scholarships and the student emergency fund. Being a student comes with additional stressors to the challenges that life provides, but succeeding as a student is often the one thing that will make life a little easier and a lot more rewarding. An OTC Sock Star is an OTC staff member, faculty, or supporter who believes in our students and goes the extra mile to make life a little less stressful for students with emergency needs.

With every donation of $30 or more by June 21 to the Student Emergency Fund, you help a student succeed and receive a free pair of newly designed Ozzy socks, not available anywhere else. This campaign only runs May 14 – June 21, so act fast!


Donate to the Student Emergency Fund to help students innovate and succeed.


Show off your school spirit with a pair of exclusive, not-for-sale Ozzy the Eagle socks as a token of our appreciation.


Post a photo of your new merch to social media using the hashtag #OTCSockStar.
