Northern Kentucky University is proud to announce the Norse Varsity Club, the official letterwinners club for former student-athletes at NKU.

A rich tradition of success exists at all levels of competition for Norse Athletics since its inception in 1971-72 due to the outstanding student-athletes that have donned the black & gold. The purpose of the Norse Varsity Club is to engage student-athlete alumni, continue to involve them in their athletic department and continue building cohesion throughout Norse Nation.

Regular gatherings and events will be held throughout the year to provide increased opportunities for alumni to stay connected with Norse Athletics.

Northern Kentucky will hold a pair of kick-off events in conjunction with the men’s soccer match against Bradley on Friday, Nov. 1, and the 2019 Horizon League Cross Country Championship on Saturday, Nov. 2. More details on the kick-off events will be announced at a later date.
