After two years without a true homecoming celebration for Northern State University—due to weather and the pandemic—the campus community and all of northeast South Dakota was ready to paint the town maroon and gold for Gypsy Days 2021.

And the celebration didn’t disappoint, with festivities including the 105th annual parade and the first homecoming football game ever held in the new Dacotah Bank Stadium.

“It was a fitting return and perfect weather for a fantastic experience for students, alumni and our community,” said NSU President Dr. Neal Schnoor.
