There are many advantages to being an ORU alumnus! These are just some of the benefits…

  • You can apply for a free Alumni Card, which grants you access to the Prayer Tower’s Observation Deck and lets you check out gaming equipment at the Hammer Center. Please know that as of August 2017, access to the Aerobics Center is limited to current students and faculty & staff and their spouses. However, alumni who are playing on an intramural basketball or volleyball team have access to the AC in-season for practice and for games. To participate in intramural basketball or volleyball, alumni must have a valid Alumni Card and be approved to play. Alumni can request approval to be on these intramural teams by e-mailing alumni@oru.edu. Once approved, alumni can enter the AC by checking in at the front desk and showing a valid Alumni Card. Those with a valid Alumni Card can watch intramural games in the AC if they have been approved previously by the Alumni Relations office...
