Alumni Spring 2023

From the Alumni Director

Dear OBU Alumni and Friends,

2023 is already off to a wonderful start for your Alumni Association! We are offering new programs, events and services, all with the intent of staying connected to you and adding continued value to your life. Our website has been completely refreshed with updated content, so you can stay up-to-date on all the latest happenings. We’ve made an effort to provide easy access to online forms like transcript requests, contact information updates (please make sure we have your most updated information), alumni award nominations and more. We’ve added services like insurance packages and programs like Traveling Bison.

We have ongoing events on campus and regionally that you can attend. We are working towards starting up OBU Alumni Clubs in key Oklahoma cities and beyond, as well as growing a robust “Bison Network” that can be a consistent connection to OBU from wherever you live. We post regularly on our OBU Alumni Facebook and Instagram pages so please find us there to stay informed as well.

I would be remiss if I did not mention our main event of the year…The Weekend! Start planning your return to Bison Hill this fall, October 19-21, 2023. We will once again have dozens of events and experiences you can be a part of while you reconnect with fellow alumni and get to know our current students. Families of current students are invited to participate as well, with Family Weekend activities happening throughout The Weekend. If you have a prospective student in your life, bring them for Bison Day where they can learn about life on Bison Hill and consider making OBU their collegiate home.

Do you want to see more individuals from your class attend The Weekend? Take the initiative and contact them with a personal invitation. Forward our emails with a personal note. Make a few phone calls. Share our posts about The Weekend on social media so we can reach even more alumni and friends. Make plans to meet up and reconnect during The Weekend. Let us know how we can help. You can play a vital role in the success of The Weekend by working alongside our team to reach as many alumni and friends as we can.

This is THE time to engage and stay connected because of all the exciting things that are happening with OBU Alumni. Join us on this journey in whatever capacity you can. Let us know your ideas and how you want to engage. Join us in regular prayer for our campus and each other. OBU Alumni, we are so incredibly grateful for each of you and the ways God is using you for His glory. Thank you for the support you give and for the love you still hold for OBU.
