7×7 Challenge

Hey Blog World! Here is a video from a cool academic event on campus called 7×7 Challenge. 7 Professors had 7 minutes to discuss an area of study that interested them, and then we in the audience voted on the most interesting or our favorite presentation. I included clips from every speaker and a few funny moments. Hope you enjoy!

Sunday Mornin’

Bloggers- Here is a video from my church a couple weeks ago. For those just tuning in, I go to Mission Church in Overland Park. This is Rachel and Wallace Fa’agutu, they are Hawaiian musicians and also children’s ministers. They have an album called “Little Songbirds” that I would STRONGLY recommend, especially if you know kids and want some fun worship music with an island influence 🙂 They also have a few other records here: http://rachelnicolemusic.com/discography/. This particular song is by Matisyahu called “Live Like a Warrior.” I’m a HUGE fan of their cover, so I hope you enjoy it[…]

Oh the places you’ll go… On campus

Hey there, Bloggers! So last week I made a video about the places to hang out on campus featuring a few MNU students. It’s a different approach than the “typical student” would take to introduce you to common spaces on campus, so I hope it’ll keep you entertained for at least a minute and 49 seconds. At the end is my roommate’s reaction to a prank we pulled on her last week. Enjoy!

Red Bus Project

Hey Bloggers! It’s been a while. Yesterday, MNU made the headlines! The Red Bus Project stopped by and set up shop. From their website: WHAT IS THE RED BUS PROJECT? We’re driving a double decker bus-turned-mobile thrift store from college to college, spreading awareness about the needs of orphans and raising money for orphan care. WHY? Because millions of orphans around the world need a family. Together we can give them a voice. HOW DOES IT WORK? Donate your best clothes, buy clothes on the bus and invite all your friends to join the Red Bus Project. The funds raised[…]

Microblogs, #Hashtags, and the Subtweet Movement

Blog world: Hello from Spindle 304! Let’s talk about Microblogging. Microblog: A type of blog that lets users publish short text updates. Bloggers can usually use a number of service for the updates including instant messaging, e-mail, or Twitter. The posts are called micro posts, while the act of using these services to update your blog is called microblogging. When Twitter was first introduced in 2006, I think the general thought among everyone but the early adopters was, why on earth would anyone be interested in knowing every little thought I have? This was followed by a brief period of[…]

Once Upon a Sunday Afternoon

Greetings Bloglings. I’d like to start by giving a shout out to Jordan Warren, member of the Pioneer Class of 2018. He asked the question, “What really goes on when class is out of session?” Answer: MNU PD. …well, maybe not after every class. Hopefully this will paint the picture: One Sunday afternoon, my friend Konner and I got this idea to make a video speculating a day in the life of our very own Campus Safety, with influences from hit TV shows The Office and Reno 911. A trip to Goodwill and a few phone calls later, this video[…]

Monday Night Football

Greetings Blog World- If you are out of the loop, football in America has been over since the Superbowl (who knew?) ..But that doesn’t mean our Athletic office and football players have been sitting quietly. This semester, about 700 recruited football players, all from California, have transferred in to start morning workouts and practices. Also from California, MNU’s newest Head Football Coach: Brian Willmer! Coach W is the 6th head football coach in the program’s history. He coached at Azusa Pacific University and was an integral part of leading the Cougars to become conference champs in 2013 after just their[…]

Come Clean

Okay blogging friends. If you tuned in last week, you probably have a very skeptical view of my buddy Stephen. Normally with friends like Steve, I would just allow you to keep on believing that he is the man that will never trust a fart again. But now I’m feeling guilty because some of the information was fabricated. tainted. false. So it’s time for me to come clean. (enjoy the sweet sounds of Eisley while reading.) I’m reposting the story here. Follow my commentary (of my own story) to find out what actually happened on that Tuesday afternoon.   One[…]
