Event description


A time-honored NSU tradition, Homecoming brings together students, parents and alumni to celebrate their Demon spirit. The week long festivities showcase the Demon spirit through athletic events, fun on- and off-campus activities, and entertainment.

The highlight of this week is the Homecoming game when the Demons take on Houston Baptist in Turpin Stadium. The Student Activities Board in partnership with the NSU Alumni Association has put together a schedule that has something for everyone, so come out and have a great time!
