Last year due to COVID-19, Homecoming at Ottawa University was not even hosted. However, this year’s Homecoming will look different from any year before. 


A new tradition that is being started this year for Homecoming is a spirit dress-up week, which is traditionally only seen in high schools. This goes along with Homecoming’s theme: “The Wizard of Oz.” Monday is “Oz the Great & Powerful,” where students are encouraged to wear green and bling. Tuesday is “Twister Day,” which is “wacky tacky” day. Wednesday’s title is “There’s a STORMcoming,” which involves students of each class wearing a different color. Thursday's theme is “Lions & Tigers & Bears… OH MY!” that asks for students to dress like an animal. To end the spirit week, students are encouraged to wear their traditional Black & Gold. 


To go with this new tradition, there will be several events for students to attend the week of Homecoming as well. The Campus Activities Board will be hosting a Movie night at the Cinema Plaza starting at 7 p.m. Tuesday. The fun coincides at 7 p.m. in the Fredrikson Chapel for the Laflin Illusionist. On Wednesday, students are asked to attend the Homecoming pep rally on Advent Health Field at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, there are two events going on, the first one being the chili cook-off held in the atrium at noon and the donut run at Daylight Donuts, which starts at 11:59 p.m. Moving into the end of the week, there will be a Late Night Bonfire held 8 p.m. Friday. To round off homecoming week, there will be the Homecoming Football game at 1 p.m. Saturday.
