VIRTUAL HOMECOMING 2020: A CLEAR(ER) VISION FOR OUR FUTURE

Join us November 9-14!

Welcome to the homepage of Homecoming 2020. We are so excited for those who will be joining us and excited about what the week has in store for YOU!

Please watch the video above to hear a special message from Natalie Adams, Vice President of Development and Alumni Relations, and Johnie Hampton, Alumni Board Chair.

CLICK HERE TO RSVP!

Throughout the week of November 9-14, we will have plenty of ways to connect—virtually, of course! Not only will there be live events, but we will be posting a lot of on-demand content as well.

Our goal is to give you a clearer vision of what ORU is doing now and where we are headed in the future—including how we are walking through the adversity that this year has brought, and how to foster a virtual connection. Check out the schedule of events on this page, and please let us know if you have any questions. We’re at alumni@oru.edu or 918.495.6610.

We cannot wait for you to join us this year! Are YOU ready for a clearer vision?
