Bison Hill Welcomes Parents, Siblings on Family Day

Parents and siblings of Oklahoma Baptist University students are invited to catch an inside glimpse of life on Bison Hill during Family Day Saturday, Oct. 10.

"This event gives parents and other family members the opportunity to visit with their student and get a glimpse of how his or her transition to campus life is going," said Bobby Canty, OBU dean of students. "We have planned several activities for the day, but at the same time we are leaving plenty of time to visit apart from scheduled events."
