All Homecoming packets must be submitted online by noon Monday, Oct. 5 for registrants to be considered eligible for Homecoming 2015 competitions and activities.
The Homecoming 2015 theme is Huskies Light the Way, a throwback to the Homecoming 1965 theme (Northern Lights the Way), as Northern Illinois University celebrates Huskie Stadium’s 50th year in existence.

- Wednesday, Oct. 21: Yell Like Hell
