2023 Alumni and Friends Banquet: 13 Nov 2023
Thanks to all of our alumni and friends for a great 2023 banquet! We had a strong showing this year of about 270 attendees!
The University of Oklahoma Army ROTC Sooner Battalion plans to host its 21th annual Alumni and Friends Banquet at the University of Oklahoma, Memorial Union Ballroom on Friday, November 8th 2024.
This event allows all former graduates and friends of our program the ability to reunite with one another, meet our cadets and their families and catch up on old times.
We also want to encourage all of our alumni and friends to meet and talk to as many cadets as possible. The cadets are always curious to hear our “war” stories and how ROTC benefited us.
We will be awarding 45 scholarships and awards worth over $64,500 to our outstanding cadets. The OU Alumni Association names our group number ONE out of over 100 alumni clubs due to our commitment to scholarships (awarding 11 scholarships/awards each year that range from $500 to $4,000) and numerous other events we sponsor. To our alumni–thank you for making this possible.
We wish to invite the proud parents and family friends of our cadets so that they can see first hand how proud we are too. We hope to surpass our excellent attendance of around 300 attendees for the last 4 years.
The expected cost of the banquet will be $50 for Alumni and guests. We expect a large number of attendees, so please register early on our website while space is available!
Attendees will be required to electronically register and pay by check or credit card. Attendees must also provide information on choice of meal (beef, chicken or veggie) and any dietary considerations.
Cadets should register themselves and their spouses or dates with their primary Military Science Instructor. Cost for Cadets will be paid by the Alumni Association. Cadet spouses and dates will receive a special rate of $25. Donations are welcome and encouraged.
Free parking will be provided in the parking lot East of the Field House (2 handicapped, 150 regular). Additional parking will be available in the Memorial Union garage (171 parking spots) for $2.00 per hour
