What's New

For those of you who have previous versions of the style guide committed to memory, the following is a short list of items that have recently changed.

Telephone Numbers

With Oregon's change to 10-digit dialing (and just because it looks better), telephone number style is to use hyphens only. Use 541-346-5397 instead of (541) 346-5397. 


Periods in degrees are no longer used, so BA, MS, and PhD, not B.A., M.A., and Ph.D.

References to Alumni

Names of graduates of the university should be followed by degree received and year of graduation, so Ima Eugenia Duck, BS '89. References to those who attended the UO but did not graduate may include the class with which they entered, for example Christopher Credit-Shy, class of 2007.
