As of June 10, 2013, NNU has been in operation 36,431 days. Or if you would join in some math-geekery: 874,344 hours, 52,460,640 minutes or roughly 3,147,638,400 seconds.

Over the past seven months (213 days, 5,112 hours, 306,720 minutes or 18,403,200 seconds), NNU has been celebrating its centennial; but there is one moment 96 days from now (2,304 hours, 138,240 minutes or 8,284,400 seconds) when NNU will be exactly 100 years old.

Founders’ Day, September 13, 2013, marks the exact day the Idaho Holiness School, the school that would become NNU, held its first class. A week-long celebration starting September 9 will remember those individuals who offered their time and possessions to make 100 years (36,527 days, including leap years) of Christian education in the Northwest possible.

Those attending the picnic and outdoor concert on Friday, September 13, will receive the second of a five-piece series of Centennial keepsake pins; the first was given out during the time capsule reveal. For each of the remaining four centennial events, a pin will be given to attendees, with the final pin given during the Birthday Bash at Homecoming & Family Weekend 2013 in November.
