OPSU Celebrates the Spirit of Tradition at the 2023 Homecoming 

The magic of OPSU Homecoming has become a Panhandle tradition. With students returning to campus, planning is in full swing for our 2023 Homecoming weekend. Homecoming weekend will connect students, alumni, and the local community in more ways than one. 

Homecoming celebrates the past and embraces the future of Aggie Nation. This year’s Homecoming weekend will be September 22-24. The OPSU Student Activities Department, the Student Government Association, and the Alumni Association promise this Homecoming weekend to be greater than ever, designed to foster the sense of camaraderie and pride that defines the OPSU family.

“Homecoming at OPSU is a celebration of who we are as a University family. It is a joyous occasion to see generations of students and alums come together, united by their shared love for our University and this community,” stated University President, Dr. Julie Dinger. “Each year, as we celebrate Homecoming, we reaffirm the values that make us who we are – resilience, unity, and excellence.”

The 2023 Homecoming event will feature the crowning of the Homecoming King and Queen after the Volleyball game in Anchor D Arena on September 22. On September 23, the parade will bring everyone to the tailgate area to enjoy the tree dedication of the 2023 Alumni Honored family, the Oblander Family. The Alumni Association will also host a BBQ meal. The OPSU Aggie Football team will end the evening paired up against Arkansas Baptist College with kickoff at 6 PM at Anchor D Stadium. 

Shawn Joy, Alumni Director, stated, “OPSU alumni hold a special place in the heart of our university. Their achievements are a testament to the transformative education they received here, and they continue to inspire us with their passion and dedication. Homecoming is an occasion for us to extend our gratitude to our alumni and remind them that they are forever a crucial part of the Aggie family.”

The Alumni Association plans to end the weekend with the first-ever Panhandle Trap and Skeet Shootout on September 24 at 9 AM. All shootout proceeds will go to the OPSU Alumni Association and the OPSU Shooting Sports Team. 

As we gear up for the 2023 Homecoming, OPSU invites all students, alumni, and community members to join us in celebrating the spirit of tradition and unity. Together, let us create memories that will last a lifetime and strengthen the bonds that tie us together as members of the Panhandle State family.
