TRADITIONS

Welcome Back Weekend

Welcome Back Weekend kicks off the start of the academic year, Newing Style. Our community welcomes both returning and new students with activities and giveaways in the halls and on the Co-Rec field. These events cannot be missed, as it is a time to reconnect with old friends, meet new students and staff living in the Newing community, and kick the year off with great Newing pride.

Autumn Bowl

This event occurs during Family Weekend and is one of Newing's newest traditions. During Autumn Bowl, the Co-Rec field and surrounding sidewalks are filled with booths where students and their families can play games, make crafts, and get free food and giveaways. It is a great time for students, family, and friends, to socialize and take part in all of the Autumn Bowl festivities.

Co-Rec Football

Are you ready for some football? Newing's Co-Rec is a two-month long football tournament between the four buildings of Newing Community. Come down for some competitive, but friendly, fun. Enjoy yourself, whether you're playing or watching! Opportunities are available for refereeing as well.

Newing Navy

This week-long event is Newing's oldest tradition. It is held each year during a week in the spring semester and marks the passing of winter and the advent of spring. It includes a variety of sports competitions, trivia challenges, tug-of-war, cook-offs, and much, much more. Each hall in Newing competes against every other building in the community for the prized plaque and title of Newing Navy champions.

Not Your Typical Thanksgiving

At this event, students from Newing gather together for a Thanksgiving dinner that includes food from many different cultures. During the meal, several cultural groups showcase their talents through performances on stage. Additionally, canned and boxed food is collected during the event to be donated to a local food pantry. The Not Your Typical Thanksgiving event brings students together to celebrate the richness of the many wonderful cultures found in Newing College!
