Raider Nation Celebration  Homecoming Sept. 30–Oct. 1, 2022

Northwestern’s annual Raider Nation Celebration includes:

  • Red Raider Road Race (Register for the road race)
  • Morning on the Green family carnival 
  • Class reunions
  • Raider athletics alumni games
  • Tailgate picnic
  • Raider football and soccer
  • Distinguished alumni awards
  • Legacy Celebration Banquet for donors
  • Time to renew old friendships

Alumni come back to campus from across town and around the world. They reconnect with faculty who mentored them over the years and bring their families to revisit former classrooms, residence halls and the chapel. They marvel at how much the campus has changed—and how much it still feels like home.
