Thank you!

Thank you to all of the alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends who came out to any of the Homecoming 2013 events. You helped us take Purple Pride to new heights with the highest attendance for Homecoming in recent NU history!

Highlights from the week of Homecoming 2013 festivities include:

  • 250 students participated in Color Roar to raise money for the Summer Internship Grant Program
  • 150 of you came out to watch Jurassic Park at Movie on the Meadow
  • More than 500 attendees came out to have lunch with us at the Food Truck event—so much food was eaten that several food trucks completely sold out!
  • The crowd at GameDay on the lakefront was more than 1,200 people strong
  • More than 2,800 of you were there to cheer on our Wildcats at the Pep Rally on Deering Meadow!
Total attendance for all Homecoming Week 2013 events was well over a record-breaking 6,600! With this kind of Purple Pride, we can’t wait to see what happens next year!

Mark your calendars! Homecoming Week 2014 is October 12–18.
