Recalling special events and traditions of life in Natchitoches and Northwestern, Memories from the Hill presents the recollections of alumni and friends about our collective past. Ranging from a look back at past Homecomings to the reminiscences of alumni, Memories from the Hill records those moments that made NSU more than an alma mater to the members of our great extended Northwestern family.
