The first building on the campus of NNU was constructed in 1915, when approximately 4,000 people lived in the city of Nampa. Don’t miss exploring NNU’s living history by taking a self-guided tour of the campus. Participants should begin at the Emerson Administration Building and pick up a Centennial Walking Tour brochure to enjoy a historic journey across the campus of Nampa’s University.

In the brochure is a map showing current and historic buildings of importance. Each location features a plaque with information, trivia and photos that show the history of NNU and the city of Nampa. This self-led tour with 12 stops takes about 45 minutes to complete.

You can also see eight special Centennial displays showcasing the University’s humble beginnings and growth through pictures, artifacts and video. Reading every piece of information found in the museum-quality displays would take several hours, but plan to spend at least 30 minutes browsing the best parts of NNU’s 100-year history. The Centennial displays will be located in the Johnson Sports Center during Homecoming & Family Weekend.
