Join fellow Terriers at The Mansion on O Street, one of Washington D.C.’s most eclectic venues. The O is located in a series of five interconnected town houses that includes over 100 rooms and over 70 secret doors.
The mission of The O is to empower people to do what they love — dare to be different — and have fun. We inspire creativity, diversity, and imagination through the fusion of the arts, science, and sports.
We’ll tour the space and learn about the art, memorabilia and other items displayed throughout the mansion. President Varlotta is excited to connect and re-connect with Washington D.C. area alumni and friends and give a brief update on the College and The New Liberal Arts™.
Tickets are just $20 and include your first beverage, heavy appetizers and a tour.
Designed in 1892 by Edward Clark, architect for the US Capitol two centuries ago, the buildings were interconnected and served as a home for himself, his brother James "Champ" Clark, Speaker of the House (during Teddy Roosevelt's Presidency), and a third brother, known as "the artist." Throughout the years, The O has been many things including, housing for FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover’s G-men, housing for student leaders of the protest movement and much more.
Today, The O is a beautiful mansion and museum. The décor throughout the buildings are artifacts such as guitars, memorabilia, letters and more all of which were donated by their original owners who support the Museum’s mission.
