With so many that traveled from near and far, alumni tailgates and celebrations united Cowboy alumni of all ages.

This weekend was an eventful one in Stillwater, as OSU proudly celebrated 101 years of Cowboy Homecomings. Thousands of alumni came back to fellowship with others and to make connections with new faces of the Cowboy family. Events were held especially for this cause, as many schools hosted

reunions for their colleges within the university.

Those that graduated from the College of Education and Human Sciences were greeted with a picnic at Willard Hall. Attendees got the opportunity to meet alumni young and old and catch up with long-time friends.

Patrick Wyers, a graduate of the College of Education, got the opportunity to come to this event and share his thoughts on why it is important the Alumni Association helps to throw these types of events.

“It’s one of the terrific benefits available to doners and alumni,” Wyers said. “It’s just a time to get acquainted with individuals within the school of education.”

The College of Arts and Sciences held a tailgate for alumni to attend on the Friday before OSU’s big game against Texas. Beverly Morris, a graduate of 1990, attended the tailgate, and she got to touch a bit on what it means to be coming back to OSU for the Homecoming celebration.

“I’ve worked for OSU for over 30 years,” Morris said. “I have a son who is a student here currently. I love coming back to OSU and the university, I love orange and Go Pokes.”

Many other celebrations took place over the weekend, as the College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology held a tailgate leading right up to kickoff on Saturday, and the Ferguson College of Agriculture held a reception right before the crowd roared in to go look at the house decorations built for walkaround.

Overall, the celebration in Stillwater went off without a hitch as per usual, and the alumni of OSU got the opportunity to reunite once again to celebrate its alma mater.
