Oklahoma State’s Homecoming has now officially started. 

Several events are slated to take place, including OSU’s annual sign competition. 

The sign competition is an event ranging from Sunday to the following Friday. The signs are created by Greek houses, residence halls and campus organizations. The signs will be judged and awards will be given to one of the different participating communities.  

OSU’s psychology club came out with a sign and a message in this year's competition. It chose the theme “branded for life” for its sign. The sign shows a cow branded with an Oklahoma State psychology club logo on its side. 

“Psychology is one of the largest majors on the campus with makes us one of the largest student organizations,” Lauren Cargill, vice president of the OSU psychology club said. ”We host monthly meetings about different topics our last meeting we had a professor at a graduate forensic psych program speak, we had a member of the Oklahoma FBI, and a professor on our campus that does forensic research talk.” 

Formula SAE is another OSU student club participating in the sign competition. SAE is a club that participates in national competitions which take place all over the country. The club essentially designs and tests a prototype race car and races against over a hundred other universities. 

Weston Gorhan, Formula SAE member, said this year is special for them. 

“Our sign this year means a lot because we’re focusing on the years,” Gorhan said. “We were established in 1997, which marks our 25th year. We’ve been competing for a quarter century. This year we designed our board to represent what our current model that we’re working on will look like. With the exact frame that’s being built in the shop. So it’s really cool because we not only get to share our organization with OSU but show what we’re currently working on for the competition.” 

The Psychology club and Formula SAE are just two of several organizations that have brought out signs for the competition. Which allows for plenty of unique stories and messages to be seen and told. 

All signs in the competition will be on display during the entire week. Students and alumni can vote for their favorite sign by searching “Phillips 66 Fan Favorite contest” online.
