It was one of those perfect Michigan fall weekends - the air was crisp, the leaves were falling
and OU alumni were coming home.

This year’s Homecoming and Reunion Weekend, held October 11-12, was comprised of
athletic events, academic unit reunions and alumni celebration activities. The weekend
kicked off with a rousing performance by the Oak Park High School Marching Band at
Matilda’s Birthday Bash event held at the Elliott Tower. The premiere event on Saturday was
the Homecoming Festival, where guests reconnected with fellow alumni, and enjoyed fun
and games with a family festival, pumpkin decorating, and more. Featured reunions at the
festival included Center for Multicultural Initiatives and Black Alumni Chapter Social, English
department, and athletics reunion.
