Northwest Missouri State University


The Long Walk Society

The original architect's plans for the campus, which were modeled after Cambridge University, included a large quadrangle, marked on the most northern point by the Administration Building, with all future campus buildings built facing the quadrangle. While the original plans were never realized, the first sidewalk built from the entrance at Fourth Street/College Avenue ran straight to the front door of the Administration Building. Known as the Long Walk, songs were even sung about the long walk.

Donors who have contributed between $25,000 and $99,999 in lifetime gifts are members of The Long Walk Society.
