Family Weekend Tailgate & Football Game

Through generous donor support, SES is providing free tickets for family members to attend both the Tailgate and Football Game on Saturday, November 11, 2017 as part of Family Weekend through New Student and Family Programs (NFSP). Cheer on the Wildcats during the Northwestern vs. Purdue Game!

Please note, the Big Ten may not announce the time of the football game until six days before the game. The game is anticipated to take place at either 11:00 am or 2:30 pm, with the tailgate at either 9:00 am or 12:30 pm. Be sure to check the NSFP website for the full schedule. 

Tickets sold out quickly, due to a record number of RSVPs. We thank you for your interest, and apologize that we're not able to accommodate your request at this time.

Northwestern in Chicago

Join us for our Signature Event: Northwestern in Chicago. All incoming students and their families from the Chicagoland area are invited to attend. Guests will have an opportunity to meet current students, staff, faculty, and alumni. During these programs, we’ll engage in casual conversations around the first-generation and/or low-income experience at Northwestern, and answer questions related to financial aid, housing, and more.

Details for the Summer 2018 events will be available in Spring 2018.
