Administration Building Architecture and History

The Administration Building was the first building on campus and was the only building in existence when we opened our doors in 1934 as Eastern New Mexico Junior College. Students used to attend classes in the building and in a small nearby farmhouse. Locals like to share a story about when this building was first built. They say people would ask "Why is there a building out there in the middle of that field?"

Fast forward to 2018, more than 80 years later, the Administration Building is still one of the most identifiable buildings on the ENMU campus. The unique architecture echoes the strength and dedication of those who paved the way for today's ENMU students, faculty and staff to find success.
