Homecoming 2017

Welcome Home: Homecoming 2017

There was a time when you called Northwest University home. It was where you lived, ate, studied, worshipped, and made good friends. On Friday, February 10 and Saturday, February 11, we’re bringing back a tradition just for you: Homecoming 2017. It will be a wonderful time of fun, food, worship, and reminiscing with fellow alumni and faculty. It’s our one chance this year to come together as a community and celebrate the people and times that have had an impact on our lives.
