NU Bucket List #79: Homecoming Week

Homecoming week is almost here! Once again, thousands of students, alumni, and families will gather at Northeastern to celebrate this amazing event. From food, to hockey games, to special guest speakers, there’s so much to enjoy during this year’s Homecoming Week!

Homecoming week is the perfect chance for you to support our awesome athletics teams! On Friday the 10th, our Men’s hockey team will face off against BU. Enjoy the Homecoming Tailgate before heading into Matthews to witness what is sure to be a great game! Want to show even more Husky pride? On Wednesday the 8th, be sure to wear red and black! Paws will be around campus all day looking for students rocking our colors and giving them free hats and scarves!

Want a Paws of your own? The Homecoming Carnival is returning on Monday the 6th, featuring the classic stuff-a-husky area, give-aways, and free food! For more free food, register for the Sprinkles of Spirit event to decorate (and eat of course) a yummy cookie and head to the Library Quad to make some delicious S’mores!

Most Homecoming events are free, except for a few things like our special guest speakers. You can buy $5 tickets on myNEU to enjoy an evening with Maureen Chiquet, former Global CEO of Chanel. Tickets are also STILL AVAILABLE on myNEU for our Homecoming Headliner, James Corden! The full list of Homecoming events can be found here, but be sure to check out our Twitter throughout Homecoming week for a few surprise event announcements!

Every week, we post one more thing you MUST do before you graduate Northeastern. Tag us in/tweet us a picture of you doing our thing of the week, and you could get featured on our twitter or instagram, or win some pretty awesome prizes (including your favorite Husky swag)! #NUbucketlist
