With more than 246,000 living alumni, the impact of leaders, givers, and change-makers whose journeys began at OSU can be felt around the world. These Cowboy heroes possess remarkable character, and they bleed orange.
The 2022 OSU Homecoming Executive Team has selected the theme "Hats Off to Cowboy Heroes" to celebrate these individuals who serve, create, persevere, discover and learn with diligent, passionate hearts.
Cowboy heroes come in many forms, including athletes, educators, entrepreneurs, firefighters, medical professionals, military personnel, social workers and more. From Wally Funk becoming the oldest person to reach space, to Henry Edward Roberts inventing the first personal computer, Cowboys are paving the way as heroes in all aspects of life.
During the 2022 edition of America’s Greatest Homecoming, we are celebrating the Cowboy heroes who make us all proud by personifying the OSU culture of service and excellence. We recognize those who have come before and eagerly anticipate the next generation of Cowboy difference makers. After all, our heroes have always been Cowboys.
Homecoming 2022 is October 16-22. America's Greatest Homecoming is presented by the OSU Alumni Association and sponsored by Love's Travel Stops.
