Homecoming 2016

Let's Be Bold and Go For the Gold!

Homecoming defined in the Merriam Webster dictionary is “the act of returning home or to a place that is like your home.” NKU Homecoming gives our current students a break from the everyday, same old, to enjoy a week of fun-filled events at the place they now call home. For our Alumni, Homecoming gives them a chance to come back home and see the good that is still coming from Northern, and to see that the foundation they have set years ago still stands.

It’s time to start preparing for the most exciting time of the school year! Homecoming will be Friday, January 29 through Saturday, February 6, 2016.

Last year’s theme of “Norse Jam” reflected the feeling of NKU being an out of this world campus! NKU Homecoming 2016’s theme reflects on not giving up on the progress NKU has made in these past years.

In the words of Wilma Rudolf, a USA gold medalist in track and field, “Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.”

We all have the potential to do amazing things at NKU and beyond. It takes all of us to show how amazing Northern Kentucky University is. So Let's be Bold and go for the Gold! Activities Programming Board presents the NKU Homecoming 2016’s theme, Going For The Gold!

The Homecoming Committee is excited to sponsor this week for you, with the help of multiple constituents across campus. Applications are available to be submitted starting Monday, November 30, 2015 through NorseSync. They will be due by Friday, January 15, 2016.

Please remember to pay your Homecoming fee, $40 for Grey Division, $40 for Black Division, $45 for Gold Division, and $50 for White Division. These fees are due into the Student Union Programming Office (Student Union Room 111) by 4pm on Friday, January 15th 2016. Failure to turn in payment will result in disqualification from the competition.
