Chiropractic alumni will reunite at Northwestern next week for the annual College of Chiropractic Winter Homecoming and Gathering.
Chiropractic alumni from around the country will reunite at Northwestern next week for the annual College of Chiropractic Winter Homecoming and Gathering Feb. 2-4. The Chiropractic Homecoming is Northwestern’s biggest annual event with more than 1,000 people attending, including alumni, vendors, chiropractic assistants, and students.
Continuing education seminars and luncheons will be held each day on campus; with more social events in the evenings. The alumni association will host a reception and research poster session at the end of the day Thursday, followed by a reunion years reception at the Hilton for the graduating classes of 1942, 1947, 1952, 1957, 1962, 1967, 1972, 1977, 1982, 1987, 1992, 1997, 2002 and 2007. The reception is open to all alumni from these classes, even those not attending other Homecoming events.
The Friday evening event at the Hilton is dedicated to recognizing the fifty-year graduates and the Alumnus of the Year, with a dinner, dancing, and fun entertainment by the Deuces Wild Dueling Pianos.
Nearly 100 vendors will be present at Homecoming, and in keeping with tradition we’ll award thousands in scholarship dollars to Northwestern students this year. “Homecoming is always exciting; it never gets old,” says Debbie Peterson, executive director of alumni relations and career services. “Our favorite part is that the alumni return to campus, and it is always good to see old friends.”
