The more common name for Northwest Missouri State University's International Plaza, where at least twenty flags from various countries are flown.

Name derives from the fact that at night, the lights from the Plaza can be seen from twenty miles away, calling the students back to campus.
We were worried that when we took that wrong turn off Highway 71 we'd encounter some zombies but in the distance, we could see the Northwest Homing Beacon, and cut across a frozen field to get back to campus.
