Homecoming 2015: A Cardinal Family Reunion of Epic Proportions!

Imagine one big Otterbein Cardinal Family reunion at Homecoming 2015!

That’s the idea behind the “Our Cardinal Family: Connections that Stand the Test of Time” theme. As students, we were a part of many Otterbein families: our residence hall family, our Greek Life families, our athletic team and student organization families. Some families are even lucky enough to have a legacy of history at Otterbein, as multiple generations of students within their family attended Otterbein.

As alumni, we invite you to come home to Otterbein for a family reunion of epic proportions! This year’s Homecoming will include all the tradition of past events, with some new changes and updates:  

  • Annual Homecoming Parade
  • Liberty Mutual Bandstand & Grove Festival with The Ark Band, featuring alumnus Mark Hunter '98
  • Greekville Tailgate—new location on the Library Lawn
  • Staff Assembly Charity Craft Bazaar—new location on Towers Hall Lawn
