This week I want to write about how important the Mabee Library Learning Commons to us MNU students is.This is the one building that every student will visit during his or her time here. It doesn’t matter what age, on or off campus or what major. Containing more than just a library, it is where we spend quality time studying and preparing exams – the most important part of our MNU school career. But also we converse, play games, hang out, get some coffee before class, print project, or meet for some events. Why is the Mabee Library Learning Commons or short the lib so important?[…]Read More
This week, on Friday and Saturday, MNU’s Track team headed to Jacksonville, Illinois for the Indoors Conference Championship. We all were full of excitement, personal aspirations, and high expectations. Well, do you know what happened? We won bigly! We simply dominated in an unprecedented way, taking the first place by a landslide on both sides. The women’s team victory was more significant than the men’s, which creates a pitch of jealousy mixed with pride in me. Nevertheless, this weekend was an awesome feeling for all of us, as we saw the amazing payoff for all the work we had put[…]Read More
Last week, I wrote about the unique leadership that guides our Track&Field team. Today, I want to reveal some of the events of my track career that slowly but steadily paved my path for MNU. It all started 13 years ago, when my parents finally realized that soccer or any other team sport was not the right fit for me. Imagine a seven year old who never passes the ball to someone else and yells at his teammates for not passing the ball to him. YES! That was me. Consequently, my wise parents chose an individual sport for me, and[…]Read More
Howdy Folks, Landen and I have the opportunity to help the admissions team bring some unique content to our prospective students. Along with Chloe Smith and Faith Johnson, we will be going live on Facebook to virtually bring you onto our amazing campus! Our first live video will be Wednesday, February 8th. Each one of us hope you’ll take the time to join!
As students we face many labels, requirements, and obligations. We, so called Millennials, are constantly being told what activities to avoid in order to be successful in life. We even admit that many of those advices are perfectly reasonable and meant for our own good. On the other hand, if we followed all of the recommendations we would be nothing else but a bunch of boring and bored geeks. On a more specific tone, we all agree that one of the most enjoyable activities, one that happens to be the most criticised, is watching TV-shows. There is a bit of[…]Read More
There are a lot of things that people warn you about before coming to Kansas: long drives, lack of public transportation, tornados, corn fields, humidity, conservative people, etc. No one, however, ever mentioned cold and icy storms that will lock you in your room. The last time I have seen a lot of (real) snow was probably five years ago in Germany and it lasted maybe two days. I truly believe that it is a result of global warming (It exists! I had to hold a presentation about it for my biology final). Apparently, this has not reached Kansas City yet. When I heard[…]Read More
This week, we all were about to go to Nebraska to compete at one of the best college tracks in the country. Sadly though, the weather forecast for this very same weekend showed that a major ice-storm would hit us by yesterday. Fortunately, as any good 21st century, politically correct institution would act, our incredible trip was cancelled. As we all can see from our windows, the horrendous snowstorm we have been warned before has not showed up yet. So, instead of kicking some behinds in Nebraska, here I am sitting in my living room asking myself, “How come that[…]Read More
As one could cleverly derive from the title of this blog, I spent my winter break in Colorado. Thanks to my fantastic friends, I was able to enjoy some of the most beautiful views in this world. Moreover, I could go to a city, which I’ve utterly fallen for – Denver. I enjoyed every second in the state that has everything from stunning sceneries, and overly curious deer, to skyscrapers that are tirelessly trying to compete with the magnificence of many fourteeners in their background. I am sure that there are many wonderful places in the United States, however I[…]Read More
This year, the most beautiful holiday comes into a rather divided world. Billions of people around the globe will be celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ forgetting about all the troubles they have encountered lately. I feel like this year we need to embrace and remember the merit of Christmas more than ever, because all the things that Christmas should be about have been partly forgotten. We get so caught up in our jobs, social media, and school that the things that really matter suffer and then we suffer as well. So let’s take a look at some examples of the right Christmassy actions, values and emotions.
Warning – All of the videos bellow may cause you a Christmassy mood that will not go away till January 1! Side effects include: uncontrolled laughing, crying, shopping fever, and edification.

Christmas should be about fun. So whatever jumps at us, let’s just take it easy and with smile.
It’s important to know the background!
I don’t know how about you, but I am not in the Christmas mood until I watch Grinch! Btw, this year is the 50th anniversary of that green hairy dude!
As mentioned several times in my antecedent blogs, I am majoring in Communications. To be honest, I really just picked a random major that didn’t sound too hard or to specific. I just wanted to come to the United States and play soccer (don’t tell my Mom!). With Dr. Hamilton as my advisor, I figured out that life isn’t a wish concert (as a German would say for life is not a bowl of cherries). It is more like a puzzle. The good thing is that Dr. Hamilton pushed me to take classes that I thought I would never be[…]Read More
