Happy Thanksgiving from Northrise University!


Northrise students and staff stand in front of the new Campus Center building.

God has blessed us richly and there is much to be thankful for!  We give thanks for:

  • 10 years of educating students, with 10 year celebration events in Zambia, California and Arizona!
  • Construction on the Campus Center building began in July and ground was broken during the 10 year celebration in Zambia. Praise the Lord!
  • Student enrollment has increased from 553 to 667.
  • A new partnership has been established with First Quantum Minerals (a local mining company in Solwezi) and Baylor Nursing School to create NU Nursing School.
  • 21 people are employed through NU farms.
  • 42 students graduated in 2014.
  • Planning has begun for Impact Ndola 2015 and a number of leaders have already committed to the trip! Click here to sign up.


Indeed, so much to be thankful for!  May you have a blessed and joyful Thanksgiving!
