Herald Your Fame Homecoming 2017

Tuesday, May 1, 2018

A large crowd at OSU's Homecoming celebration.

Three words in the Oklahoma State University alma mater provided the inspiration for this year’s Homecoming theme – ‘Herald Your Fame.’ Our alma mater has produced many famous people and ideas, all of which were celebrated in October at the annual event that has also brought fame to OSU – “America’s Greatest Homecoming Celebration.”

Rickie Fowler, one of OSU’s most famous alumni, returned home to serve as grand marshal of the Sea of Orange Parade. Known for wearing America’s Brightest Orange on Sundays, Fowler received warm, loud Cowboy cheers at every Homecoming event as if he were approaching the 18th green at The Masters.

Warm weather and clear skies greeted OSU alumni and friends for Homecoming’s main events Friday and Saturday, capped off by a resounding 59-16 victory over the Baylor Bears. While we were happy to win the game, we were also excited to welcome back three-time OSU graduate Linda Livingstone as Baylor’s new president, who is featured on Pages 96-99.

Along with our sponsor Phillips 66, the OSU Alumni Association invites you to relive Homecoming 2017 and some of our favorite moments that help make this event so famous.
