Homecoming 2018

November 2-4

For decades, Bison have gone with Ka-Rip. You and your fellow alumni excitedly "let'er go ruse" as you cheered the Green and Gold to victory. Time and again, we all return to this enduring tradition as a way to celebrate the Bison Spirit. Trends mark our times and novelty fades, but our University chant continues to tie generations of alumni and friends together.

So too does Homecoming Weekend. Each fall we recognize the traditions that set our alma mater apart. No matter your graduation year, we can all reflect on OBU's distinction and how the relationships we formed as students transformed our lives.

Homecoming is dynamic and full of evolving elements designed to capture the essence of OBU's community. This year, we welcome you home to the traditions that defined your life on Bison Hill.

Zip! Bang! OBU!
