Raider Nation Celebration  Homecoming and Family Weekend | Oct. 4–5, 2024

During Raider Nation Celebration, 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. And Raider Nation Celebration gives current students' families opportunities to spend time together and experience what makes Northwestern stand out.
