Every now and then I have dinner dates with my suite mates, Madison and Sydney. Over the years, it has become tradition that we would go to Town Topic, a very small fast food restaurant that they introduced me to my Sophomore year. Since our schedules are very different – each one’s busy in its own way – we never find time to see each other. However, we manage to always find one day or one special occasion to meet up for Town Topic. Without even knowing, for these dates developed the following habits: No one dresses Up Whether it[…]Read More

Do you want to find out what it’s actually like to go to school here at MNU? Do you want to see the campus first-hand? Simple, come to a visit day!
Being an international student, displaced from everything and everyone I love, taught me how lonely some days across the pond can be. Especially those days when everything seems to go wrong. I cannot imagine how hard these situations had to be ten or twenty years ago, when no technology, able to connect people around the globe instantly, was around. . . Fortunately for me, nowadays, we can reach our loved ones anytime in a blink of an eye. Although, from my personal experience, it is rather desired to text before calling because your sister could have, for example, just succeeded[…]Read More
Here’s is the 100% true story of how I came about attending MidAmerica Nazarene University: (This story was meant to be read with a generic almost British accent similar to how they speak when performing Shakespeare… keep this in mind) My story begins in the magic area of Kansas City, Missouri. I was spending my days living in a beautiful castle (apartment building) right smack dab in the best (worst) party of KCMO. Guys, I Want A Castle. – Tangled GIF from Tangled GIFs It was my senior year of High School and the question had[…]Read More
So last weekend, my only plans were to work on my essay that was due on Monday. However, on Thursday night we were all sitting around playing card games and board games and wanted to play more but had already played all of the ones that we had. On Friday at like 4:30 Harriet told me that they were all going to her house in Swindon (about three hours away) to get some more board games and asked if I wanted to go. Of course, if there is anything that I am always down for at any time it is 1. Breakfast 2. Coffee 3. Naps 4. Good music and 5. ROAD TRIPS. So two hours later we were hitting the road. It was a great trip filled with jamming out in the car and deep heartfelt convos. I did end up getting my essay done in case you were wondering. Basically this vlog is a bunch of random clips from our road trip and us being our crazy selves. Enjoy!

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
When I was looking at MNU my senior year of high school I remember really wanting to know what the dorms were like and how they could be decorated. This blog is for you out there like myself. I am so grateful to have some wonderful freshman friends who allowed me to take pictures of their room for you all to see. All freshman girls are in the same building called Stockton. All the freshman boys are in Lanpher. Below are pictures from Stockton but Lanpher is build the same way so worry not boys. This first picture is just[…]Read More
