Last week, the OU community eagerly welcomed back one of its favorite traditions: Homecoming. After a year off due to the pandemic, this year’s festivities felt even more special than ever.

Ring Ceremony
Excitement filled the air as seniors received their OU rings, and OU alumna Pattye Moore was recognized as the fall 2021 honorary ring recipient.

Alumni Honors and Celebrations
Homecoming week marks a special time to celebrate the invaluable contributions of alumni. Members of OU’s classes of 1970 and 1971 were honored with their 50-year medallions, and Regents’ Alumni Awards were presented to 10 OU alumni and friends in recognition of their outstanding dedication and service to OU.
