2018 Icho Festival

2018-4-30 (Mon) - 2018-5-1 (Tue)

The Icho Festival is a celebration of welcome for new students to the university, but it is also a great opportunity to strengthen friendship and ties among faculty, staff, students, and the local community. Moreover, it is a celebration of the anniversary of the university's founding on May 1.

We'll be holding various events according to the schedule noted below in order for individuals from inside and outside of OU learn more about education and research at the university.

We look forward to seeing you there!

  • Events by undergraduate schools, graduate schools, and research laboratories (opening of on-campus facilities, exhibits, film viewings, performances, etc.)
  • Events organized by student clubs (booths, on-stage performances, indoor performances, sports tournaments, etc.)
