TWIRP

 

TWIRP is an annual, campus-wide, weekend-long group date. Long referred to as one of the best campus-wide traditions, TWIRP often takes students off campus to explore other parts of the Boise Valley.

Mr. NNU

 

Mr. NNU is like Miss America without the miss...or the America. Mr. NNU is a "beauty pageant" for the men of campus. Two guys from each class are nominated by their classmates to compete for the coveted title from which the event draws its name.

Fresheree

 

Fresheree is NNU's infamous "no-talent-required" variety show. Each fall, students perform a menagerie of skits and songs during a night of comedy. Hosted by the sophomore class council, Fresheree takes place in NNU's Little Theatre.

Student Government Association

Each year, NNU's Student Government Association (SGA) organizes countless events designed to enrich the NNU college experience. Staple campus traditions would not be possible without the SGA and other student leadership.

"Week One"

College (especially the first week of college) can be intimidating. Amidst moving in and figuring out your schedule, NNU's Week One is designed to facilitate a week's worth of activities to help you transition to campus life and to cultivate relationships with fellow classmates, student leaders, faculty and other key NNU staff members--all while making memories that will last a lifetime. Activities like a scavenger hunt will help you get to know campus better while bonding with fellow freshmen as you complete  in crazy, fun challenges. The Rootbeer Fest allows new students to relax and enjoy a movie outside with returning students before classes start. Jazz on the Lawn introduces students to our signature iced-coffee drink, "the brick," while enjoying NNU's own jazz ensembles.
