Every semester there is that one class you hate and love at the same time. For me, professor Hamilton is usually the common denominator, representing such class on my schedule. His classes are very challenging yet fun and practical. Today, I would like to share my experience with the Communication in the Digital World course, which has been another terrific class, combining theoretical knowledge with practical skills. Besides all the interesting information about relationships in the digital world, communication theories, and the Internet, we have learned how to create a website from scratch. Usually for me, team-work projects are a[…]

Cafeteria Choices: Which One Do You Prefer?

One of the things I was pleasantly surprised with my freshman year was the range of choices in our cafeteria. One can eat healthy all the time; however, plenty of unhealthy temptations are available as well. Being an athlete forces me to avoid the pizza/fries section; although, I would lie if I said that my everyday routine (salad and grilled chicken) makes me as happy as a big bowl of ice-cream or pepperoni pizza would. All of the choices we have beg a question: which one do you prefer? Are you one of those lucky people who can eat junk[…]

MNU’s Track Team at Nationals

Starting on March 2 and continuing till March 4, the 52nd NAIA Indoor Track National Championship took place in Johnson City, Tennessee. I had the privilege to participate in this great competition alongside with 21 other MNU qualifiers. Many daring expectations and dreams were in our minds. Some of them got fulfilled and some of them remain for upcoming years, keeping us hungry and motivated. I am among those who have a lot to make up for, and I intend to use this outdoor season to prove my true capabilities, paying back some of the fantastic generosity MNU has blessed[…]

Why Kansas Weather is Ridiculous!

Kansas weather is as unpredictable as my test scores in Dr. Hamilton’s classes. You never know if you end up with a high somewhere in the 80s or a low around 30 to 40. Especially this month proved to be very unstable in temperatures. For me, it is common to look out of the window, see a grey sky every day and expect rain most of the time. Moreover, you can predict the temperature just by the observations. In Kansas, however, I have learned to at least change twice before leaving the door. First, I look outside and get dressed.[…]

Studying Abroad = Family Closer Than Ever

To continue my technology blog from last week, I have decided to reveal another lovely effect of technology combined with simply being gone from home. From my vivid personal experience, I can state that studying abroad has made the relationship with my parents and my sister better than ever. It is almost like the old rumor about marriage I just made up, “the less spouses see each other the less they will drive each other crazy.” So much true in such a short statement, isn’t there? Nevertheless, let’s dive into depicting my beloved sister. I can describe her as a[…]

Why the Library is Important!

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?[…]

MNU’s Track & Field Conference Triumph

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[…]

My Path to MNU

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[…]

Facebook Live!

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!

Productive Procrastination

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[…]
