This Week In Moscow: June 19–June 25, 2016

Posted on June 18, 2016

Community is the number one reason many of our students say they chose NSA. Moscow, Idaho, is home to a vibrant and thriving Christian community that is active year-round. You’ll also find that, between the picturesque natural surroundings and the numerous public events* and activities around town, this little city has a lot to offer.

(NSA is currently on summer break. Classes resume August 15. To view the academic calendar for 2016–17, click here.)
