Go Maroon and Gold during homecoming week!
Some say it’s the highlight of the whole year as a queen and marshal are crowned and all around Aberdeen, people display their pride in the NSU Wolves. It’s a week of football, swimming and soccer games that culminates in the annual Gypsy Day Parade – the largest parade in South Dakota.
We look forward to hosting our students, alumni, families and the community for homecoming. Go Wolves!
