Music

Northwestern music department concerts and student recitals do not require tickets, but you're still encouraged to show your VIP Pass at the door when you attend. Concerts by outside musical groups and bands often require tickets; your VIP Pass cannot be used for tickets to these events, but you're still welcome to enjoy them with your family.

Theatre

Most of the theatre productions presented by Northwestern College theatre require both reservations and tickets. To attend a theatre production, visit nwciowa.edu/tickets to reserve your seats and then present your VIP Pass at the box office when you arrive to claim your ticket.

Dabby Anyadike Dabby Anyadike ’22 Business administration major from Los Angeles, California

Dabby's story

“I really love the idea of interdisciplinary study that the Honors Program offers. This really interests me because my majors are so different, and because I love to learn as much as I can. In fact, I wanted to major in four or five disciplines, but that’s not feasible, so instead I enrolled in the Honors Program because it promises experience in fields outside of your own, which is really cool.”

Landon Van Berkum Landon Van Berkum ’22 Computer science and history major from Everson, Washington
