Posted on May 15, 2018

Welcome to my May update:

It is hard to imagine that graduation is already upon us. We are so grateful for the four AA students, the 24 BA students, and the five MA students that will be walking across the stage May 10th! Please join us in Moscow, at the Nazarene Church, at 7pm for the graduation ceremony. A reception will follow at our new building in downtown Moscow located at 112 N. Main Street.

President's Dinner
Please join us for our annual President's Dinner on May 9th. Vintner Gino Cuneo will pair his Walla Walla wines with Chef Mark Cuneo's fine cuisine for what is sure to be an adventure in fine dining.  Seats are limited, so please RSVP by this Wednesday with the purchase of your tickets HERE.

NSA is pleased to announce that we have a specific website just for Connecting students, alums and employers to each other.  Post positions, find personality tests, submit blog posts, get advice, get help creating a resume - all from one site.  Go to

NSA Media 
Recently, I have had the pleasure of sitting down one on one with my faculty in a series called Podcasting with the President.  You can access the archives here, and we hope you enjoy getting to know our amazing faculty here at the college.

Pastor Doug Wilson is working through a series of C.S. Lewis lectures, and we wanted to bring your attention to this 15 minute clip regarding C. S. Lewis's thoughts on education.

Build Campaign Update 
We are very grateful for all the support we have received from our generous donors during our five year Build campaign. We have a long road ahead of us to raise the money we need to remodel our new building, grow our endowment, and fully fund our scholarships. Your support gives us encouragement.

Thank you to all who have graciously given to the college this past year.  New Saint Andrews has been truly blessed by your generosity!

Thank you,

Benjamin Merkle
President of New Saint Andrews College
