Homecoming

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 now we’ve combined all three of these gatherings for one giant, iconic event — HOMECOMING 2018, scheduled for October 25-28. Mark your calendars!

We welcome all to participate in our Homecoming festivities, as we share and celebrate the special bond that exists between members of the Ozarks family.
