Family Day Fun!

Family Day

Come join the Ranger Family for a day of fun, food and Ranger Football!

Family Day at Northwestern Oklahoma State University has been canceled for Fall 2020.

The annual event brings families to campus where they can take tours, purchase Ranger gear, shop for tuition scholarships and attend a Ranger football game. 

Families are invited to visit the Alva merchants to “shop for tuition” to register for a $500, $300 or $200 tuition giveaway for the spring semester on Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon. Families can register as many times as they’d like, and the winning individuals will be presented with their awards during halftime (must be present to win).

After the Presidential Pre-Game, families will receive free tickets to the football game and a chance to win additional prizes.

Families also are invited to the Tailgate Party from 4 p.m. until kickoff on the west side of the Ranger Field Fieldhouse. Food and drinks will be served for $3 per person. In case of inclement weather, Northwestern will play host to the tailgate event in the Student Center.

Saturday’s events will wrap-up at 6 p.m. when the Northwestern Ranger football team takes on Southeastern Oklahoma State University.

No purchase necessary to “shop for tuition.”
