Have you ever seen shirts with this crest on them and wondered just where is the University of Okoboji? The University of Okoboji started small, but now boasts of being the best known non-existent University in the Country!
It all began when the owners of a small clothing store in Milford, Iowa printed a few t-shirts with the crest and school motto, which is "IN GOD WE TRUST, EVERYONE ELSE...CASH".
When Herman Richter, co-owner of 'The Three Sons' clothing store had those first t-shirts printed, he couldn't have imagined how big the "university" would become. The U of O sponsors many activities around our "campus" all year that draw people from all over our beautiful Iowa Great Lakes Region. In 1988, the formation of the University of Okoboji Foundation was announced.
Excerpts from the "school scrapbook" is perhaps, the best way to explain the University of Okoboji and what it is all about.
