Founder's Day Athletic History
Another school tradition which dates back to 1918 is the school yell, “Ka Rip.” Ka-Rip was introduced to OBU students by Fred A. McCaulley who was employed as an OBU field representative. Note that some of the words in the original version differ slightly from the current form. I first heard Ka-Rip in 1964. In those days it was done at a somewhat slower pace than today, and the words were more distinguishable then.
