University Concert Series (UCS) exists to provide entertainment to the students of OBU in a fun and enjoyable setting. UCS hosts multiple musical events throughout the academic year.
UCS hosts jazz nights on campus for students by partnering with the OBU Jazz Orchestra as well as jazz combos. The group also serves free coffee and dessert during this time for patrons to enjoy while listening to the music and visiting with friends.
In addition to these events, UCS also sponsors free concerts through the academic year for the students to enjoy. Past performances have included Derek Webb, Addison Road and smaller bands such as Colton, Zara and Kinsey Charles. Included in the annual concert lineup is Senior Encore, which is a showcase of the talent of the graduating seniors for that academic year.
Applications for UCS are made available each fall semester. The junior and senior co-chairs conduct membership interviews under the supervision of the UCS sponsors. Current members do not need to reapply.
