Homecoming 2017 is coming

The time to rediscover your inner Laker maniac is near! Nipissing celebrates its annual Homecoming weekend September 29 - October 1. It’s a weekend like no other, with students, staff, faculty, friends and alumni having fun together and showing their school spirit.

This year’s events kick off on Friday, September 29, with free pizza at our I Heart NU event and registration pick-up while our alumni set sail on the Chief Commanda II for a scenic sunset cruise to Callander Bay. Check out our Lakers varsity men's and women's basketball teams hitting the court at the RJ Surtees Athletic Centre followed by Alumni Pub Night at The Raven & Republic in downtown North Bay.

The events turn a little more maniacal on Saturday as the Laker Maniacs will be leading the charge encouraging everyone to show their spirit for the blue and green. Saturday afternoon gets rolling with Pints N' Poutine at the Lakers Alumni Volleyball games. Be sure to register your tiny humans for Kid Zone while you enjoy the games.

From there, hop on the bus and head down to Memorial Gardens for some hockey action and the always awesome pre-game tailgate party from 4– 6:30 p.m. We’ll have everything you need: food, a beer tent and live entertainment from DJ Neon Nomad. Finish off your perfect blue and green day by cheering on the Lakers hockey teams. The women’s team takes on the Ottawa Gee Gees, while the men face off against the UofT Blues. The puck drops at 4:30 p.m. for the women and 7:30 p.m. for the men.

Don’t miss out on this great weekend. Online registration closes September 22. Register right here, right now!
