University College Students, Families Invited to Celebrate Homecoming
Nebraska Wesleyan University will celebrate homecoming September 19-22, which also happens to coincide with the closing of our 125th anniversary.
While homecoming is a special time for alumni to reconnect with our campus, it also provides a special opportunity for University College students and your families to celebrate Nebraska Wesleyan.
Activities begin Thursday, September 19 with an honorary degree ceremony for two long-time friends of the university, Willis and Joyce Heim. That ceremony will be followed by an ice cream social at the Old Main Amphitheatre for all faculty, staff, and students.
We have several activities planned throughout the four-day event including a campus blood drive (8 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday; your participation will be added to our year-long 12,500 Hour Service Challenge that concludes that day); alumni academies, which provide an opportunity to sit in on a fun class (3:30 p.m. Friday), golf cart parade, outdoor tailgate and carnival (10:45 a.m. Saturday), football game (1 p.m. Saturday), and a pops concert (5 p.m. Sunday).
Nebraska Wesleyan University provides equal educational opportunities to all qualified persons in all areas of university operation, including education and decisions regarding faculty appointment, promotion or tenure, without regard to race, religion, age, sex, creed, color, disability, marital status, national or ethnic origin or sexual orientation.
