Although the youngest state university in New Mexico, we look with pride upon our accomplishments since the dream of having a university in eastern New Mexico first arose many decades ago. The Legislature of 1927 located the University in Portales, and the Legislature of 1929 approved the first appropriation for buildings. Although the first building was constructed in 1931, Eastern's doors were not opened to students until 1934. The institution operated as a two-year college from 1934 to 1940. The third and fourth years of college were first offered in 1940.
ENMU是 认证 by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools as a four-year liberal arts college in 1947. 研究生 work leading to the master's degree was added in 1949, and the institution was officially designated 澳博app下载网址 in 1955.
This is the first building to be utilized by our institution when we opened our doors in 1934 as Eastern New Mexico Junior College. 学生 used to attend classes in the building and in a small farmhouse.
