Gypsy Days

Go Maroon and Gold during homecoming week!
When the leaves turn, something magical happens at Northern. A feeling of excitement and energy overtakes the campus and spreads throughout the community. It’s called Gypsy Days – a weeklong celebration during NSU homecoming.

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 Gypsy Days 2020. Due to COVID-19, we anticipate the potential need for several precautions and accommodations. We will communicate with you as the homecoming date approaches. In the meantime, stay well and Go Wolves!
