OBU is as much a culture as it is a university. And it's one that values friendships, academics, spiritual growth and some unique traditions.
To help you acclimate to Bison culture, you will participate in Welcome Week. Welcome Week is a complete immersion in all things Bison. From the moment our Tri-Ws help you move in to your dorm to your ultimate mastery of Ka-Rip, you will have the chance to make friends, get to know campus, and meet the professors who will be your teachers and mentors for the next four years.
And, yes, we make you wear a beanie.
(Want a head start on Welcome Week? Read Arthur F. Holmes book, The Idea of a Christian College. It will give you important insight into how we view our spiritual and academic mission.)
