Campus Update –
Read about Ozarks' ongoing response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.


Ozarks’ rich history is something to be celebrated! Homecoming is a time to connect past and present.

Alumni weekend, family weekend and homecoming have all been special events over the years at University of the Ozarks, and we’ve combined all three of these gatherings for one giant, iconic event — HOMECOMING.

The University is excited to be offering in-person events for the 2021-2022 academic year. Please know that the University will implement COVID-19 pandemic protocols during all of its on-campus events during the upcoming year. This may include social distancing and mask requirements as well as limiting the number of in-person guest to each event. These requirements may change throughout the year based on the current status of the pandemic. For the latest University policies and regulations concerning COVID-19, please visit

Originally scheduled for October, Homecoming will now be held April 8-10, 2022. While we wait for April, please take a look at some of our Homecoming events we plan to offer.
