Save the Date: Alumni and Family Weekend

The Northwest University Alumni and Family Weekend is coming up on September 29 and 30, and we want to welcome you back home to the Northwest University campus and your NU family. We’ll kick off the weekend with our annual Alumni Chapel, where you will hear from our new Alumnus of the Year and worship alongside current NU students. That night, we’ll attend the NU volleyball game followed by an open mic night with s’mores hosted by our student leadership team.

On Saturday, we’re excited for our second annual Fall Festival, which will feature inflatables, dessert trucks, kettle corn, apple cider, a live band, and much more. Make sure to stop by the welcome table when you arrive to pick up your free gift.

In addition, if you are a parent of an NU student, you will have the chance to visit the residence halls and see your student’s dorm floor. If your student has a sibling that would like to spend the night in the residence halls, arrangements are available. For the rest of the family, there are a number of nearby hotels that provide exclusive deals to guests of NU. You can see the full list here.

We hope you’ll join us for one of our favorite weekends of the school year. If you want to RSVP, or if you have any questions, please feel free to email
