Parent & Family Weekend

Parent & Family Weekend is an informative, engaging and enjoyable time for you and your family to connect with your college student. Over the course of the weekend, NNU will welcome parents and families to visit campus to interact with the people and places that have become so important to your son or daughter.


Registration for NNU's Parent and Family Weekend is now open.


Registration and Cost

Parent & Family Weekend registration is free! While there is no cost to register, we would like to know you’re coming in order to plan accordingly. Register by February 3 to receive an updated schedule and event details and be entered in a drawing for a $50 gift card to the NNU Bookstore.

Individual Event Tickets
