Give to MNU
We are so thankful for the support of alumni, parents and friends. Those who support MNU through a financial gift play an important part in developing opportunities for the future. Alumni support is especially valuable and often impacts the level of support that foundations and corporations provide when considering giving a major gift to MNU. Every alumni gift counts!
Order a Legacy Brick
The Legacy Circle is a walkway of bricks located at the center of campus, etched with the names of alumni and long term faculty and staff. The walkway will eventually surround the Harvest Prayer sculpture on the campus mall with thousands of personalized bricks. Freshmen begin their MNU journey with a special ceremony at Legacy Circle and culminate their experience upon graduation at this same location. Walking along the brick path, engraved with the names of so many Pioneers who came before them, will be a reminder of the rich heritage these new graduates now possess.
“The Legacy Circle was established by former President Robinson to provide a tangible way to celebrate the values and heritage of MNU. This special place provides an opportunity for alumni and friends of the university to be included with thousands of others whose names will be recorded here for years to come. For generations students who walk this campus will recall the names of those who have preceded them. The names of faculty and staff with extended service will join MNU graduates in this legacy of celebration of MNU and God's faithfulness from generation to generation.” -- Dr. David Spittal, MNU President
There are so many opportunities for you to volunteer your time and talents as a Pioneer alum.
- Class Reunions
Would you like to play an active role in planning your next class reunion? The MNU Office of Alumni Relations relies on alumni to make class reunions memorable for attendees. If you are interested in being involved in planning your upcoming reunion, please contact the Alumni Office. We can provide a handbook designed to guide you in the class reunion planning process.
- Alumni Concessions
The Office of Alumni Relations is now responsible for all concessions during MNU athletic events! This is a great fundraising opportunity for the Alumni Office, and we depend on volunteers throughout the entire year. Volunteer to work concessions and receive a free ticket to that game. For football, volleyball, and basketball games (where you can’t see the game from the concessions stand), you will receive a ticket to a future athletic event. Sign up to volunteer.
