Join us for Homecoming & Family Weekend 2017

September 28, 2017

Northwest Nazarene University is gearing up for Homecoming & Family Weekend which will take place November 9–11, 2017. Alumni, family and community members are invited to partake in the homecoming festivities—reuniting with old friends and making new ones.

This year’s Homecoming & Family Weekend will include special events to honor and connect former resident directors (RDs) and resident assistants (RAs). Prior to the men’s basketball game on Friday, a parade of all the RDs and RAs will take place in the gym. Saturday brings a Residence Hall Open House at 3 p.m., and a RD and RA Dinner at 5:30 p.m. in the Field House of the Johnson Sports Center.

Also celebrated over the weekend will be men’s basketball alumni from the '40s and '50s. An alumni game will take place Friday afternoon at 5:15 p.m., followed by a recognition ceremony during the men’s basketball game at 8 p.m. that evening and the induction of Ricard A. Hagood into the Hall of Fame at halftime.

In addition to these reunions, plan to join us for several other special events:

Opening Thursday night, there are five opportunities throughout the weekend to see the musical production, "The Fantasticks." The longest running musical in the world, it’s a funny and romantic story about a boy, a girl, and their two fathers who try to keep them apart.

Gather with NNU Nighthawk fans past and present during the men’s basketball game Friday night at 8 p.m. Come early for the Food Truck Rally beginning at 5 p.m. New this year, join us Saturday morning at 7:30 a.m. in the Dining Hall for the President’s Pancake Breakfast.

Wrap up the weekend by listening to the talent of the NNU Department of Music on Saturday night. The concert will feature performances from NNU’s top ensembles including Bella Voce, Jazz Revival, Concert Band, Northwesterners and Crusader Choir & Orchestra.
