Student Development

Find your place

Why do people want to be part of the herd, so to speak? From your first Ka-Rip during Welcome Week, you'll see that OBU has the "spirit thing" down.

OBU faculty, staff and students are extraordinarily friendly and supportive. This is a culture that works and plays very hard. We have more than 110 student organizations and 20 intramural sports. Our varsity athletic program, offering 22 sports, has won 12 NAIA National Championships (seven in the past five years).

What do you say? Are you ready to become a Bison?

Ka-rip Ka-rap Ka-riplo typlo tap
Oh! Oh! Rincto lincto hio-totimus

Ka-willa, Ka-walla, Ka Victory
Oh! Oh! Hoogula choogula choogula can.
Ragula tagula melican man
Let'er go rip, let'er go ruse
Tingula Tangula, turn'em a-loose
Zip! Bang! OBU!
