The Everybody Party is a Northland tradition—a way to kick off the academic year, welcome new Northlanders to campus, and meet new people. This year’s Everybody Party was organized by the Northland College Student Association, with Convocation organized by the Office of the President.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this event is only open to current Northland College students, faculty, and staff.
This event has been approved by the COVID-19 Planning and Response Team, and we will follow campus COVID-19 expectations and policies to keep all of us safe and healthy.
12–5 p.m.—Games Lawn games will be set up around the outdoor spaces on campus for anyone to come and play at any time. There will also be a few board games in the Ponzio (check the Alvord and Lumberjack Lounge). Please make sure to use hand sanitizer before touching anything—hand sanitizer will be provided at every game station.
Join us in welcoming the newest members of our Northland community as the first-year and transfer students walk across Fenenga Bridge to the Campus Mall for a brief program (open to the full campus community) before dinner starts! New students will line up across the bridge at 3:45 p.m., and everyone in the campus community is encouraged to line up along the path between Mead Hall and the Campus Fire Ring to cheer on the newest Northlanders.
Tables will be spaced out on the mall with various food options from the Hulings Rice Food Center, Ashland Baking Company, and the Co-op. There will be gluten-free and vegan options. Come and enjoy brats, burgers, cookies, veggies, and more!
7–9 p.m.—Live Music
Danny Frank will be performing on the Campus Mall. Face coverings need to be worn inside the tent at all times, and physical distancing is required.
