Friday night parties have been a campus tradition since Ox-Bow was founded in 1910. Every Friday night during the summer, Ox-Bow students are invited to attend a thematic costume party, allowing for newly made and returning friends to say their goodbyes and reflect on their week of work at Ox-Bow.
For further information, please call Ox-Bow at 312.629.6158.
Proceeds support Ox-Bow’s programs and scholarships
