Fo Shizzle Winter Break Update, Yo!

I kicked off winter break with STAR WARS!!!!! I was insanely excited. I went with Gabe, Josh, Quinn, and Kory to the B&B Theater in Overland Park (My current favorite movie theater) and we sat on the second row of their huge theater. Every few minutes before the movie started I would turn to one of them and excitedly whisper “STAR WARS!” probably driving them nuts, but they still talk to me so it’s cool.   I asked Josh to take a picture of Quinn and I in front of the Star Wars poster sign thing and ended up with[…]

Action Pact…Not Your Usual Team

MNU is lucky enough to have an improv team that performs on campus as well as a SERVEteam. We’re called Action Pact. In terms of SERVEteam, several of us go to area churches and perform either improv skits or a one-act play titled “The Complete History of the Old Testament in Twenty Minutes” and of course, recruit for MNU. I’ve been on the team for 3 years and I absolutely adore it. This year’s team includes: (SERVEteam) Blake Holden, Renee DeVault (check out her blog posts!), Justin Collins, Sara Eigsti, Aubri Krosschell, (On-Campus team) Kat Stone, Sarah (Rose) Christianson, Quinn[…]

My Favorite Memories From This Semester

As the semester comes to a close, I’ve been reflecting on my favorite memories of sophomore year so far. The first thing that comes to mind is the trip I took to Colorado over fall break. I went with my friend Christen and we stayed with an amazing family while we were there. Christen and I explored Colorado Springs, hung out with horses, watched some Royals baseball, and went to New Life Church. Speaking of Royals baseball, another one of my favorite memories is when the Royal’s won the World Series… and every game leading up to that. My friends[…]

Is there life after finals?

Yes. Let’s just clear that up. Finals, for all the bad mojo we attribute them, do at least one really good thing. They help us to realize how much we have learned over the semester. I just want to do a quick review of what I’ve learned this semester. I had to shorten it by quite a bit because life happened this semester and life is hard to summarize. Don’t be afraid to be busy. I was incredibly busy this semester but looking back, I wouldn’t have changed any of it. I had incredible experiences in the Honors Program, on[…]

It’s OK To Feel Down Sometimes

Hey friends! So I wanted to talk about this during mental health awareness week but I obviously missed that chance, but I think that I can tie the subject in pretty well to this upcoming week. “But Isaac!  What are you even talking about?!” I’m glad you asked!  I am talking about depression. “But Isaac!  How does this subject tie into this upcoming week?!” Ok, calm down I’ll tell you. Finals week is stressful.  For some people, probably more than you think, it is a make it or break it time.  For some people, these tests are a matter of[…]

Finals is Like

This week I walked around- Okay I’m lying, I texted a few friends and I asked them to describe what Finals meant for them. Here are some of the answers I got. Haley Adams “Finals is like eating at campus center…. for the rest of your life.” Carly Blosser “Finals week is like getting picked up by the struggle bus at 8 am, dropped off at 9 pm, and ran over 3 times.” Lexie North “Let’s be honest though, finals week is the same as always, because when am I not confused?” Peyton Sassaman “Finals week is like forgetting it’s[…]

Creating an Integrated Marketing Communications Plan

For the past few months, I’ve been working on a semester long project for my Promotion Management class with a few teammates. The assignment consisted of creating an Integrated Marketing Plan for the MNU Admissions Department. Specifically, we were supposed to create a plan to market the current SCOUT events that MNU holds. It was crazy. We had to conduct our own research and think of every possible way to market high school students for SCOUT. I say that it was crazy, and it definitely was, but it was also super fun and interesting. That was my first time doing a Marketing Plan,[…]

Procrastin…I’ll Get Back to it Later…

T’was the night before finals week and all through the dorms, not a creature was stirring.. except for you because you spent too much time procrastinating and now you have to cram all night. I’m not here to judge, I’ve been doing the same thing all week. And now, I’m here to give you some ideas about what not to do before Monday, just like all your fellow MNU students. 1. Watch Netflix — Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, ChromeCast, whatever you use to watch your favorite reality series or rewatch classics like Friends and Parks and Rec, use it wisely this[…]

Pre-Christmas Time

I love Christmas! It is my favorite time of the year not only because of the holiday, but also because of my birthday, the winter, and New Year’s Eve. It is the time of happiness, family, love, and starting over. The December brings so much variety even for people that don’t celebrate Christmas. I know that this is only one side of the spectrum because there is so much stress and hectic, too. But I like to remember what it was like for me when I was younger. There is a song called “Through the eyes of a child” by[…]

Slaying the Stress Monster

This week is insane. It just is. The week before finals everyone either seems to walk around like zombies who have given up on life or are running around like overly caffeinated squirrels trying to get everything done at the last minute. I have taken to switching between the two pretty much on the hour. I would prefer not to talk about the things that are causing me stress (as they are all my fault for putting them off). However, I would absolutely love to talk about the way God has blessed me with ways to keep me sane. For example,[…]
