Finals Are Coming

First and foremost, if you are a nursing major, please do not read this blog. You will get upset because your finals week actually is crazy and difficult. However, the rest of us should admit that we are not as overwhelmed as we are trying to convince our surroundings. When I think about it, finals week is just another series of tests consisting of things I already know. In fact, it should be, and it often is, the easiest test of the semester. My thesis here is that as long as we study diligently throughout the semester, there should be[…]

Campus Center Craftings


Friends gather around a table for lunch in Campus Center

So we all know that Campus Center is very good about being consistent with what food they make every week. Another word for consistent might be repetitive. Due to the similarities in food week to week students have found that they get sick of eating the same things. Some of MNU’s most creative students have developed some go to recipes for when nothing looks good in CC.

  1. Acquire a bowl of Potato Chips from the sandwich bar
  2. Mix Together: Sour Cream, A bit of Ranch Dressing, Garlic Powder (Found by the pizza station)

MNU Basketball and The 3rd Half

Hello everyone! We thought you all might like to see some of the things that we do here on campus, so check out our video where we show you some of the basketball game vs. Benedictine College. Afterwards we went to Land Gymnasium for 3rd Half, an event that ASG puts on for the students to go to and have fun after basketball games! Enjoy!

Squad trip to Spain

Reading and research week is where you get a week off of school to (surprise, surprise) read and research. However, we decided to use this week in a more interactive educational way, instead of simply hitting up the library. We decided to visit my best friend in Spain! She is studying abroad there for the year and her and I had been planning this since summer. We went to the beach a LOT and had many different adventures. Can’t wait to see ya again Em <3

Christmas Spirit at MNU

I am a big fan of this holiday. I simply love everything about Christmas and all its traditions. My birthday is also in December, so I am naturally a winter child who loves the cold, snow ball fights, and building snowmen. Last week, I wanted to found out what other people on campus think of this awesome time. I know there is a divided community. A lot think it is commercial garbage whereas others share my point of view. I talked to different students and recorded some of their answers: Mac What do you like about Christmas? I like the[…]

Road trip to Newcastle

This week’s vlog is from a few weeks ago when me and two of my British friends (Tristan and Karl) decided to visit Karl’s hometown. He is from the north of England and they have their own accent called “jordy”. Sometimes even Karl couldn’t understand what people were saying. Let me tell you man, it was insane. We got to go to the beach, saw a castle, and even saw where one of the scenes of Harry Potter was filmed!
