Welcome to the Texas Campus official Northwood University Crossing Over Ceremony homepage.
The Crossing Over Ceremony symbolizes the crossing over of Northwood University graduates, students, colleagues, and friends of the University from various backgrounds and bonds them with each other by induction into Knighthood. As Northwood University Knights, they are pledging their allegiance to the task of continually promoting The Northwood Idea, and along with their alma mater, pledge to forever promote individual freedoms of men and women throughout the world.
Held annually on the first Saturday of October, the Texas Campus Crossing Over Ceremony is steeped in the lore of Knights, chivalry, honor, freedom and officially inducts participants into Northwood Knighthood.
Based on the Northwood Code of Ethics and the Knights Code of Honor, this ceremony is open to all Northwood graduates, regardless of campus affiliation, current Texas Campus students, Northwood employees who have worked for the University for more than one year, and Northwood friends who have contributed to Northwood in a significant way as determined by the Alumni Leadership Council, North Texas.
Each first-time participant receives a uniquely numbered Knights Medallion attached to a red, white, and blue lanyard. The second year participant receives the official blue lanyard, and anyone participating three times or more receives the knighthead pin to attach to the blue lanyard.
