2021 Homecoming & Family Weekend


2021 homecoming

Together Again! We can’t wait to see you this fall at Homecoming

New this year: (1) The Reunion Lounge is the place to meet and relax with friends each afternoon until 11 p.m.; (2) The MNU Block Party is great for sampling great food and seeing what’s new in MNU’s academic areas; (3) Generation Blue activities are designed for K-12 students and feature age-appropriate events during the day and evening on both Friday & Saturday.; (4) The Homecoming Celebration Breakfast brings alumni and friends together to reflect on MNU’s past, present, and future; and (5) The Homecoming Football Game returns to campus! Join us for popular traditions like Homecoming Chapel, alumni games Friday and Saturday, the Athletic Hall of Fame luncheon and the Alumni Showcase.

We welcome back alumni from the classes of 1976, 1981, 1986, 1991, 1996, 2001, 2006, 2011, and 2016 -- as well as parents and friends of the university -- for a weekend full of meaningful activities.

We look forward to rolling out the red carpet for you and yours on Homecoming & Family Weekend 2021. 

See you in October!
