Northwest Nazarene University recently met its fundraising goal of $16.5 million for a new student commons building, and groundbreaking will commence 9 March.
NNU began fundraising two years ago. In December 2017, they announced a 60-day fundraising challenge to raise the last $500,000 for the project. During the challenge, a donor offered to match all contributions.
"This 48,000 square foot building will have an enormous impact as we continue to grow and serve the world in our second century," said Mark Wheeler, vice president of External Relations, in the fundraising completion video.
Construction for the building will take around 18 months and is expected to be ready for use by December 2019.
