St. Norbert College is opening its doors to the community on Saturday, Sept. 22, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., for the college’s 10th annual SNC Day. Admission is free.
SNC Day provides an opportunity for area residents to visit campus and learn more about what the college has to offer. The event will feature three stages of musical entertainment, boat rides on the Fox River provided by River Tyme, Segway tours, horse-drawn wagon rides through campus, many children’s activities, and many different food options, including several favorite local food trucks and refreshments provided by Titletown Brewing.

Highlights this year will include beautifully restored vintage cars on display from The Automobile Gallery and special activities marking the 10th anniversary of the event. There will be an exhibit of The Saint John’s Bible, the first illuminated handwritten Bible in 500 years, walking tours of the college’s religious art and sculptures, and tours of St. Norbert Abbey (with transportation from campus provided). The Mulva Family Fitness & Sports Center will host activities for all ages. The college’s athletics teams will be on hand, there will be a rock-climbing wall and basketball dunk contest, and the Health & Wellness Center will host educational activities focusing on the eight dimensions of wellness. Classes and demos will include self-defense, CPR and Tai Chi.

The Lamers trolley will provide transportation to and from Schneider Stadium for the 1 p.m. St. Norbert vs. Grinnell College football game. Admission to this event is also free.
