Niagara College is ready to roll out a welcome mat for its alumni community and rev up its school spirit for a one-of-a-kind reunion in early November: ReuKnighted 2023.

Organized by the college’s Alumni Relations, in collaboration with Athletics and Student Engagement, ReuKnighted is an opportunity for alumni to reconnect with their former classmates and the College community through social and athletic events at the Welland Campus on Nov. 3 and 4.

“We look forward to welcoming our amazing alumni back to campus for ReuKnighted 2023,” said Jana Boniferro, Director, Alumni Relations.

“Whether they graduated recently or decades ago, ReuKnighted is the perfect opportunity for Niagara College alumni to return to their alma mater, reconnect with former classmates and members of our college community, and cheer on our Niagara College Knights!”

ReuKnighted 2023 will kick off with a tailgate party on Friday, Nov. 3 at The Core (Welland campus) beginning at 4 p.m., before the excitement moves to the gym for two basketball games featuring the Niagara College Knights versus Lambton College (women’s at 6 p.m., men’s at 8 p.m.).

Post-game festivities will be held at The Core (9:30 p.m.). The activity will continue Saturday, November 4 at the Welland campus with campus tours starting at 11 a.m. in front of the gym, followed by women’s (1 p.m.) and men’s (3 p.m.) volleyball games versus Conestoga College.

“Our Knights teams, over the years, have contributed to our strong culture. It will be awesome to see Knights alumni and show them how their legacy continues,” said Michele O’Keefe, Director of Athletics and Student Engagement.

This year’s event also involves a new partnership with the College’s Culinary, Tourism and Beverage Studies division, offering guests culinary fare cooked and prepared by students from NC’s School of Culinary Arts.

Tickets are now available for $10 each, including access to the VIP tailgate (with two food tokens and one drink token), admission to basketball games on Friday, Nov. 3 and Saturday, Nov. 4, and free parking.

Tickets are available here.
