Thank You for
Your Support!

Homecoming holds a special place in the hearts of OSU alumni, family and friends.

It could be spending hours on end pomping with classmates or meeting up with old friends during Walkaround. It could be claiming your spot along the parade route in the early morning or coming home to campus with your newest family member and continuing the OSU legacy.

No matter what your favorite part about Homecoming is, we are all here for “America’s Greatest Homecoming Celebration.”

It is vital we all step up by giving to the Homecoming and Student Programs Endowment to continue this great tradition so new memories can be created by future OSU generations.

Timeless Tradition
For 90 years, the OSU Alumni Association has presented “America’s Greatest Homecoming Celebration”. The timeless tradition held each October involves students from all areas of campus life and draws more than 80,000 alumni and friends back home to campus. From the first Harvest Carnival to the Walkaround experience and Sea of Orange Parade held today, OSU’s Homecoming brings out the brightest orange spirit and is a tradition to which no other university can lay claim.

Student Leadership
Student Alumni Board and Student Awards programs are two student-focused Association initiatives that engage and celebrate students on campus, in addition to Homecoming. These programs serve to recognize students in their collegiate experience and enhance their abilities in the areas of leadership, service and scholarship.

How You Can Help
The Homecoming and Student Programs Endowment calls upon our alumni and friends to support these programs and preserve their traditions. It will ensure rising costs do not diminish our annual events and will guarantee future generations of OSU students will benefit from the same experiences as those who have gone before them.

The Investment
The endowment will be fully funded at $3 million with giving levels of $5,000 or more earning a spot on the permanent display in Legacy Hall in the ConocoPhillips OSU Alumni Center. All who donate at least $100 will be recognized in the current year’s Homecoming Publication and on the Alumni Association website.
