Homecoming 2023 was a tremendous success! The lovely weather helped make for an incredible turnout and the plethora of events provided something for everyone! On Friday afternoon, EOU held the Mountaineer March Parade in Downtown La Grande, inviting student and on-campus organizations to participate, in addition to community members! The parade, sponsored by community partner and alumni-owned Benchwarmers Pub & Grill, brought local ‘celebrity judges’ from EOU, the Union County Chamber, and La Grande Main Street to judge and select their top three winners for most festive, creative, and participants, which was announced here. Following the kickoff, the EOU Alumni Association announced the 2023 award recipients at the annual breakfast. Alumni games were hosted across campus, leading to the culmination of the event with Mountaineer Football.
Check back soon for updates on next year’s schedule!
Each year, the EOU Alumni Association takes the opportunity to recognize individuals who have demonstrated excellence in their field, shows passion for their work, personifies a high standard of excellence and integrity, as well as a commitment to Eastern Oregon University. These awards are bestowed annually during Homecoming. Individuals are nominated by alumni, staff, and faculty, and the EOU Alumni Association Board of Directors selects the recipients. Awards may vary from year to year based on nominations received; not each category is awarded each year.
