RE:             Homecoming 2011

        Enclosed you will find the 2011 Homecoming information packet. This year’s theme is:
                         “www.NSUHomecoming11.com”
Homecoming week will begin Monday, October 10th and end with the Homecoming game,
      NSU Demons vs. Southeastern Louisiana University on Saturday, October 15th, 2011.

The success of Northwestern’s Homecoming depends on the participation of the student body including
your campus student organizations. This packet contains the information that your organization will
need to compete in the Homecoming week activites. Entry forms must be completed via Org Sync. Be
sure to select all the activites in which you would like to participate before turning in the form. Please

Once your organization turns in the entry form, your organization will be held responsible for fulfilling
the requirements for each activity selected. Make sure to check your organization boxes in the Student
Union for any changes and reminders for the week. Campus Living Villiages will be hosting a can food
drive the entire month of October with a prize being given to the winner during the Homecoming Pep
Rally.
