Who We Are:
As the oldest event on campus, Homecoming brings students, alumni, and the greater Norman community together to celebrate our university and the traditions that make it so special. This year, campus organizations will team up to compete in our mainstay events like the Rah! Rally and Parade, as well as decorate the campus with intricately crafted boards, banners, and chalk drawings. Alumni are honored throughout the week as we welcome them back to the campus that they will always call home. The theme this year is "There’s Only One" and celebrates unity, togetherness, and strength in numbers, and the fact that we are a campus and family united as one during Homecoming Week. Homecoming Reunion Week will be held from October 14th-19th, concluding with the football game vs West Virginia on October 19th.
Why We Need Your Help:
Throughout recent years, Homecoming has expanded at an exponential rate. In an attempt to make our events more inviting and inclusive, the magnitude of Homecoming Week has grown. These expansions can be seen in the relocation of the Rah! Rally to Lloyd Noble Center, new and more inclusive alumni events, and a revamped competition structure that makes it easier for student organizations to participate in Homecoming. All of these additions help us better serve our community but also come with a higher cost. For organizations, the cost of materials (float supplies, Rah! Rally costumes, etc.) is often daunting. Our executive team also faces similar difficulties in funding our events.
Your donation will help sponsor campus organizations, continue these events, and create new venues to make Homecoming more accessible. The more money we raise, the more students will be helped. The effects that Homecoming has been able to have in the past few years would not have been remotely possible without the generosity of our Thousands Strong donors, and we could not be more grateful. We are very appreciative of our donors and supporters, and once again are asking for your help.
