Frequently Asked Questions

Do any local hotels offer discounted rates?

Yes! Several hotels in the area offer discounts to ORU guests. Click here to view a PDF that lists these hotels and their rates and how to make your reservation.

Where do I check in?

The Homecoming registration desk is located in the main lobby of the Global Learning Center (previously known as the Baby Mabee).  It is the small circular building on the east side of the Mabee Center.

Where should I park?

Guests are encouraged to park in the Mabee Center lots. Click here to view a campus map.  A parking pass will be in your registration packet.  Please put the pass on your dashboard so that our security team knows that you are a special weekend guest. You will also need the pass to gain access to the campus.

Do I need tickets for the events that I signed up for?

No, we don't issue paper tickets for Homecoming events.  For events with registration fees, your name will be on a "Registered Guests" list at the event entrance.  The basketball game does require a printed ticket, which you can pick up at the registration desk in the Global Learning Center.

Where do I pick up my basketball game tickets?

Basketball tickets will be available for pick-up at the registration desk in the Global Learning Center on Friday, November 11 until 6:30 p.m.  After 6:30 p.m., tickets can be picked up at "Will Call" at the Mabee Center Box Office in the North Lobby.

This is my reunion year, but I don't see a reunion event for my class.

Not all graduating classes organize reunion events.  However, there are some great events where you can connect with classmates, such as the luncheons, the basketball game, and the banquet.  The Post-Game Party following the basketball game is a great time to mingle too!
