In the 100 years of Homecoming celebrations here at OSU, the festivities really haven’t changed much, unlike the hairstyles, fashion, automobile designs, etc. (see photos below). Since the 1920s, students have decorated their houses and dorms in honor of the event. As parade floats became more popular in the 1970s, though, the art of decorating Greek houses declined. Still, many campus venues continue to be decorated with scarlet and gray.
No matter how it’s celebrated, Homecoming obviously is one Ohio State’s time-honored traditions. We hope everyone in the OSU community enjoys the weekend!
