Hundreds of students and family members converged upon the campus of Oklahoma Baptist University last weekend as OBU hosted its annual move-in day event, welcoming new and returning students to Bison Hill. Current students, faculty and staff greeted a class of 542 first-time freshmen and 73 transfer students to campus.

Move-in day also kicked off OBU’s Welcome Week, a time devoted to making new friends, learning OBU traditions and participating in fun activities during the lead-up to classes. Students meet in small groups, participate in community service projects, compete in “Ka-Rip Wars” as they learn the school yell and participate in The Walk, as they officially join the Bison family.
