Thank you to all of our alumni and friends
who joined us for Homecoming!
It was a great weekend, with so many special moments that we'll never forget.
There was plenty of prayer. A men's basketball victory! An inspiring chapel message from Dr. Parnell Lovelace, Jr., '85, '08-M.A. Opportunities for alumni and friends to check out all the new construction that's happening on campus. Class reunions and luncheons. Departmental open houses. And of course, the Homecoming Banquet, featuring the Alumni Awards. This year’s awards were presented to Dr. Joseph L. Harris '81, ’85 (Service to God), Cynthia (Gunn) Newsome '80 (Service to the Community), A. Starr (Adkins) Clay '70 (Service to the Alma Mater), Dr. Michael L. Ash '74 (Service “In Every Person’s World”), and Dr. Robert R. Rush III '11 (Rising Servant Leader).
If you couldn't make it this year, here's some advice: Mark the dates for Homecoming 2023 on your calendar - November 9-11! - and make plans to join us. Homecoming is all about welcoming our alumni back to campus—to reminisce, catch up with beloved professors, see what has changed (and be reassured by what hasn’t!), and be reminded of what made your own ORU experience so special. Wherever your post-ORU journey has taken you, we want to see you again. Please come!
