Brick by brick, a legacy is created
The first round of Legacy Bricks have been installed in The Gardens on the Western New Mexico University campus. Sold through the University Foundation, Legacy Bricks contain loved ones’ names, special dates, or words about favorite memories. Each leaves a lasting testament on campus. Do your part to salute the past, capture the present, and pave the future for our students and community by purchasing a brick. Learn how here.
Walk for the Heroes To Benefit Local Families
The 7th Annual James H. Pirtle Walk for Heroes starts and ends on campus for the first time this year. On Saturday, September 30, participants will walk three miles around campus and through the historic downtown Silver City area then enjoy speakers and food together in Old James Stadium afterward. Register to Walk with the heroes.
Victorian Impressionism Comes Alive at Foundation's Hats in the Garden event 

WNMU Foundation’s third annual Hats in The Garden is set for 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 1. This Victorian Impressionism-themed event gives attendees a chance to unleash their inner British Queens and don their fanciest headwear. Attendees can bid on themed baskets during the silent auction and enjoy a fashion show that will evoke the sense of stepping into a late 19th-century painting. Get your tickets while they're still available.
