Miami University and the Oxford community have several efforts planned to help welcome Miami students to town when they arrive for the beginning of the academic year.

Miami Athletics, the Oxford Chamber of Commerce and the Oxford Visitor’s Bureau are partnering to provide FREE “Welcome Back RedHawk” kits for businesses in the Oxford community.  These welcome kits are designed to create a sense of excitement just as the “Paint the Town Red” initiative does for Homecoming and Family Weekend while simultaneously helping local merchants welcome Miami students, their families and visitors to Oxford for the start of the new school year.

The kits include athletic schedules, game week signs, a window decal, calendar of fall events and information on how to stay connected with Miami Athletics. A limited number of kits are available and can be ordered by filling out the attached form and submitting to Miami Athletics (contacts below). The kits will be delivered the week of August 25.
