University Concert Series


This organization serves the student body by providing events that integrate the arts, particularly music related, with our faith Christ. UCS is the group that has brought names like Ben Rector, Switchfoot, NeedtoBreathe, King's Kaleidoscope, and many more to campus. UCS hopes to serve as a reminder that we were all created as imaginative and innovative peoples intended to master and utilize these abilities for the glory of the Creator. 



Sponsors: Melissa Stroud 


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. 

UCS also hosts: Trivia Night, Open Mic Night, Bi-Yearly Concerts, and Battle of the Bands
