As a future Red Raider, you and your parents are invited to participate in our RED101 Days.
Weekends @ NWC
When you arrive Sunday night before your Monday RED101 Day, you'll get to experience Sunday Night Praise & Worship, Orange City's most popular worship event! Whichever RED101 event you choose to attend, your overnight student host will show you why students love spending weekends on campus.
The opportunity to complete a priority registration survey
A taste of our unique First-Year Seminar for all new students
The chance to meet with a professor, coach or other potential mentor
Worshipping and socializing with current students
A time for prospective parents to interact with current NWC parents
Claim your $1,000 RED101 Grant
Your participation in a RED101 Day is so valuable, we'll honor your attendance with a $1,000 RED101 Grant, renewable every year you're at Northwestern. Come to a RED101 Day, and it's yours!
What you need to do next
Soon after you're accepted for admission, you'll receive a RED101 Days invitation with details and registration information. (Or, as soon as you have your acceptance letter, you can go ahead and register.)
Registration for each RED101 Day closes one week before the event, or earlier if it reaches capacity.
Northwestern will provide you with on-campus housing during your RED101 Day visit. Your parents can find accommodations at one of our local hotels.
Flying to campus?
If you're arriving by plane and require transportation to campus, please book your flight into either the Sioux City, IA, or Sioux Falls, SD, airport. Select a flight that arrives no later than 4 p.m. on Sunday in order to catch the airport-to-campus transportation provided by Northwestern. Return campus-to-airport transportation will be available after 4:30 p.m. on Monday or after 8 a.m. the following Tuesday. Contact your admissions counselor if you have questions.
