Virtual Homecoming 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NMU Alumni Association has canceled all in-person events for Homecoming 2020, but we look forward to celebrating with you virtually this year!
We are bringing back a Wildcat tradition with a Virtual 5K for the NMU community to show their Wildcat pride. Registration is required. The waiver is available here.
- NMU Community (alumni, friends, parents, community members): $25, includes a Wildcat Fun Run t-shirt and NMU will use a portion of the revenue generated by registrations for the event to support the NMU Food Pantry
- NMU Students: $15, includes a Wildcat Fun Run t-shirt and student status will be verified at registration
Those who register before September 1, 2020 will receive a t-shirt prior to race time. If you register after September 1, 2020, you will still receive a t-shirt, but it may not arrive in time for the race period. Participants can complete the 5K between Saturday, September 19 and Sunday, October 4. Once each participant completes the race, they will send a photo to email@example.com to be entered into a drawing to win a prize and be featured on our social media channels.
How well do you know your alma mater? We are excited to host the first-ever Virtual Wildcat Trivia Night. Hosted by alumnus, NMU Theatre Director, and local business owner Bill Digneit '08, we invite you to test your Wildcat knowledge as you compete against fellow alumni. Answer questions about the history of NMU, campus buildings and monuments, big Wildcat moments, and more.
Registration is free and space is limited. Once you register, you will receive the Zoom link to participate in the Trivia Night. Download the Kahoot app on your phone or other device. Once you enter the Zoom webinar on game night, you will receive the Kahoot pin number to join the fun!
Put on your NMU gear and share photos of your Trivia experience on social media during the event using the hashtag #WildcatTrivia.
In partnership with the Art & Design, Theatre and Dance, and Music departments and NMU Athletics, the NMU Alumni Association is proud to present Arts and Athletics, an exclusive showcase for Homecoming 2020. On Saturday, September 26 at 7:30 p.m. ET, we invite alumni, students, friends, and the entire NMU community to take a virtual "stroll" through the arts and athletics at NMU. Hosted by Bill Digneit, Director of Theatre, and Erin Colwitz, Director of Choral Activities, guests will experience performances by students from the Marching Band, Dance Team, Chroral, and Theatre, as well as showcases from Art & Design students. The event will also give guests a behind-the-scenes look at NMU athletics with exclusive interviews and practice footage with the fall sports coaches and athletes.
The event is free and registration is required. Once you register, you will receive the link to the live stream to join the event.
