Homecoming Theme 2018


Check back often to see the announcement of what the 2020 Homecoming theme will be and who will lead the parade as marshal!

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 – “Paint the Town Red: Homecoming 2019”was selected by the volunteer committeeWhen the theme submission time period is open in spring 2020, please use the homecoming theme entry form on this page to submit your idea for a homecoming theme.

“Tradition and memories play a critical role for alumni that return to Alva for all of the homecoming festivities,” Dr. David Pecha, general chairman, said. “This year’s theme will hopefully provide an opportunity for everyone involved to catch the Ranger spirit by wearing something red and taking part in the many activities.”
