The Northwestern Men's Basketball team is headed to the Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.

The Northwestern Alumni Association will hold an N Zone pregame event featuring food and beverages and special guests starting 2 ½ hours prior to the Wildcats' first game in the tournament at a venue in close proximity to the Verizon Center. Depending on their seed in the tournament, the first game will be held on Wednesday, March 8, Thursday, March 9, or Friday March 10.


Sign up now to receive updates about the N Zone Pregame event when details are announced and registration opens. Single game tickets are not yet available for the tournament, but all-session tickets are available for purchase via Ticketmaster and individual session tickets, which include two games, are available via VividSeats.

Registration is now open for Northwestern | Connects, an annual event that allows you to meet fellow Wildcats, expand your personal and professional network, and show your purple pride. The event will take place on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 (unless otherwise noted).

Open to all Northwestern alumni and their guests, Northwestern | Connects is held on the same night in dozens of cities across the globe. Last year, more than 1,300 alumni and friends gathered in 52 locations worldwide. Events will range from small intimate dinners to bowling, trivia, and larger happy hours.

The events are free, but registration is required. View 2017 locations and register today for Northwestern | Connects.
