About Fall Convocation
Fall Convocation is a celebration of this year’s incoming class. Returning students are welcome to process across Fenenga Bridge, followed by our newest Northlanders (including new transfer students), to a short, celebratory program with speakers including President Chadwick L. Dayton and Vice President for Academic Affairs Alan Brew. Members of our regional and campus community—especially faculty, staff, and alumni—are encouraged to line up along the path from Fenenga Bridge to the Campus Mall to cheer on our students.
About the Everybody Party
The Everybody Party is NCSA’s annual back-to-school bash. This year will feature games, free food, live music by Northland’s own Jay Harris and local favorite Idle Rose, and an Opportunities Fair with employers, local organizations, and campus clubs! Snacks will be available throughout the event. The meal made in collaboration with the Hulings Rice Food Center will be served at 6 p.m. Gluten free and vegan options will be available.
