Great time at NNU for our first College visit. Beautiful campus on a rainy fall day. Howard is the best!

Never miss an opportunity to attend any event sponsored by the Music Department. We have attended many concerts and musicals and have always come away with how professional their productions are. We took friends to two of the Christmas concerts this year and they were in awe. The fact that they also partner up with the Boise Philharmonic speaks volumes... More

I have lived in Nampa for over 25 years and this college never ceases to impress me with the quality of education they provide. Both of my son's graduated from this fine university and have never regretted the quality of education they received.

Has some nice older buildings, but they need much work. The dorms are like a prison go inside ford hall, not to mention the boys dorms. Poorly maintained. Positive very nice people working there.

Most students come here for a good education, which you will get. Many however leave with a life changing experience. A wonderful place to find yourself and set a direction for the rest of your life. Many refer to it as "The Shoe Factory". Reason being is that they take you in as "Heals", mend your "Souls", and send you... More

I visited NNU for the first time for the Wesleyan Theological Society conference. Everything about the facility and staff was excellent. What a great gem in the heart of Nampa.

Great private University. Great place to send your kids for a broad based education without the extraneous noise of blatant liberalism.

NNU is a jewel hidden in the Treasurer Valley of Idaho. It continues to win a spot in the Top 100 Universities in the nation and it's not hard to see why. Their campus is beautiful. The academic community they have created is innovative and assertive. Yet their most powerful feature is not observable or measurable; it's the sense of... More
