Over 700 alumni took part in Wildcat Night Across the Country 2016, held on March 5.  With 17 watch parties in 9 states (including 2 watch parties in Arkansas!), a pre-game party at NMU’s Vandament Arena, and a special Twitter contest, the event offered a way for NMU grads to celebrate being Wildcats while cheering on the hockey team as they faced Michigan Tech.
