Homecoming

  • Homecoming at OSU

    Homecoming at OSU began many years as the Harvest Carnival and has grown to one of the largest celebrations in the US. The Homecoming at OSU has been recognized with numerous awards from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education and their Circle of Excellence program. Annually, over 80,000 people attend the Friday walkaround and the same the next day for the homecoming parade and football game. Colleges have their own celebrations and an awards ceremony is held during the game to recognize all the hard of students groups throughout campus.

    Homecoming at Alpha Gamma Rho holds a special meaning as it is a time when Pi Chapter excels. Many times Pi Chapter has come out on top of the homecoming celebration and brought the sweepstakes trophy "home!"

    Join us for this special celebration whether at the Homecoming Cookout, Homecoming Meeting, taking part in the Ed McVicker Scholarship Auction or just stopping by the Board of Directors meeting on Saturday, come see your Brothers and take part in an Alpha Gamma Rho tradition.
