After having to cancel its 2020 Homecoming celebration due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ohio Dominican University (ODU) successfully and safely celebrated this annual campus tradition on Saturday, Oct. 23, 2021 with hundreds of students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends in attendance.

The celebration included the university’s annual Golf Cart Parade, which features carts uniquely decorated by members of various student clubs and organizations. The parade also featured ODU’s Marching Band, cheerleaders, members of the Homecoming Court, Thunder the Panther, and President Connie Gallaher.

Participants attended a special picnic tailgate prior to the football team’s noon matchup against Walsh University, which ODU won by a score of 56-17. Sr. Diane Traffas, OP, ODU’s vice president for Mission & Identity, participated in the coin toss. Students Aubriana Bellard and Sean Noll were crowned as this year’s Homecoming Queen and King at halftime.

Following the football game, members of the community attended Homecoming Mass in Christ the King Chapel and then the volleyball team’s matchup against Lake Erie College, which ODU won by a score of 3-1.
