CURRENT THEME: Come Back, Give Back, Continue the Legacy...
The Northwestern Foundation and Alumni Association helped Northwestern’s homecoming committee narrow down a theme that reflected genuine Ranger pride for current students, faculty, employees and alumni. This year’s theme – “Come Back, Give Back, Continue the Legacy…” – emphasizes Northwestern’s belief that alumni play a critical role as partners in supporting current and future students achieve their long-term educational and professional goals.
“Northwestern wants you here. Come back and give back your time to play your part in this year’s Homecoming event at Northwestern,” Dr. David Pecha, general chairman, said. “Whether you graduated last year, or 50 years ago, we hope you will return to campus and share in the legacy you helped build. All alumni families, community members and friends are invited to join the celebration.”
