Homecoming and Family Weekend Sept. 30-Oct. 1

Cardinals Unite! A Superhero Homecoming and Family Weekend is set to blast off on Friday, Sept. 30 through Saturday, Oct. 1 on Otterbein’s campus. Alumni, parents, siblings, faculty, staff and friends are invited to attend for a fun-filled time during this annual Otterbein tradition. Superhero capes and masks optional.

In addition to the annual parade and football game favorites (Go Cards! Beat Capital!), attendees will be sure to have a MARVEL-ous time at the Grove Festival with DJ Mark Dantzer. Little superheroes of all sizes can have some fun in the KidsZone while parents relax in Greekville or join the fun at the African American Alumni picnic area. Three food trucks along with the Bon Appetit Food Tent will provide fuel to recharge your superpowers.
