Home is Where the Lumberjacks Are

Homecoming header

An NAU tradition since 1924, Homecoming is your chance to return to your alma mater, connect with classmates, and celebrate NAU! Join us for Homecoming 2017, featuring a number of alumni events leading up to the gold-out game on Saturday, October 28, vs. Sacramento State.

This year’s theme, “Home is Where the Lumberjacks Are” reminds us that we are all a vital part of the communities where we now live and work. This Homecoming, let’s strengthen the ties to where it all began—right here in Lumberjack Country.

Visit nau.edu/homecoming for event information.

If you're a graduate from the Class of 1977, we're honoring you and your classmates during this year's Blue and Gold Reunion. Click here for additional event and RSVP information.

    Lyrics

    Fight, Fight, Fight for NAU,
    Take the ball and follow through,
    Lead the Blue and Gold to fame,
    As we win another game.
    Cheer, Cheer, Cheer for NAU,
    We want a victory,
    So fight, fight, fight,
    With all your might,
    For we want a victory tonight.

    Lyrics

    Timber, Timber,
    Everybody's calling for Timber,
    Swing your ax
    You Lumberjacks
    Timber's got to go down the river today.
    Timber, Timber,
    Everybody's waiting on Timber
    Swing your ax
    You Lumberjacks
    Timber's got to go down the river today.
    Ax man fell that tree,
    Cut out a ship for to sail the sea,
    Cut out a cabin for me and mine,
    Out of the whispering pine.
    Timber, Timber,
    Soon we'll have a cradle of timber,
    Swing your ax
    You Lumberjacks
    Timber's got to go down the river today.

    Lyrics

    Hail Alma Mater,
    Hail NAU
    Thy name forever
    A guiding light so true
    Strong as the pine trees,
    Our love will never fail,
    To Thee, Alma Mater,
    Hail! Hail! Hail!
