Northwestern State University’s fall semester is packed with events for students, including some special features open to the Natchitoches community, alumni and friends. Break out your hairspray as this years first game pep rally takes a trip back to the 80s.

The Demons Come Out at Night Pep Rally will be held Thursday, Sept. 14 at 7:30 p.m. at the NSU Tailgate Field & Collins Family Pavilion. This is a great chance to meet players and coaches, members of NSU Spirit Groups, and the Spirit of Northwestern Marching Band.

“The NSU student experience is the best there is and the fall schedule is packed with activities and opportunities for our students to get the most out of their time at Northwestern in and out of the classroom,” said NSU President Dr. Chris Maggio. “Several events planned are open to the public, so we invite our alumni and friends to join us on campus for an exciting semester.”

The public is invited to attend the Back to the 80’s Concert featuring The Molly Ringwalds Thursday, Sept. 14 at 8 p.m. at the NSU Tailgate Field & Collins Family Pavilion.

The Molly Ringwalds are The World’s Greatest 80’s Experience and they’ll deliver a special tribute to NSU’s 19th President, Dr. Chris Maggio, kicking off the celebrations for his upcoming investiture.

The event includes live 80s music, food trucks from the Shreveport area, a photo booth, 80s trivia and 80s costume contest. There will be throwback giveaways including a full 1982 tuition and fees scholarship to one lucky student.

“In honor of Dr. Maggio, we are taking a trip back to the 80s with the Molly Ringwalds, the best 80s cover band in the south,” said Associate Director of Alumni Affairs Vanner Erikson. “They will perform in full costume and make up from the era of Dr. Maggio’s student days and the student who shows up in the best costume will win a scholarship of $711, the cost of tuition and fees at NSU in 1982 when Dr. Maggio was a student here.”
