Cell phone lights wave in time with Michael W. Smith’s “Place in this World” as the multi Grammy Award-winning Christian artist challenges the packed house of NNU alumni and friends with, “I’d better see this video on YouTube tonight!” Later, hundreds of hands raise in collective worship claiming the truths that prompted our educational forefathers to found this place of transformation 100 years prior.
After Homecoming & Family Weekend 2013, many people are wondering how future homecomings will be able to compare to the festivities of this centennial year celebration. It’s true. The bar has been set incredibly high.
Sven Olson, alumnus (’85) and parent of a current NNU senior Bjorn Olson, summed up the weekend well. “Homecoming Weekend and the Centennial Celebrations were absolutely world class! I really was impressed with not only the quality of the events but also the historical significance of this amazing milestone for NNU. The quality of the historical photos, stories and more really made a powerful connection between past and present. What an incredible time to be a part of the NNU family!”
