My senior year has been a big turnaround to what I was used to. I accomplished so much that I never thought was possible – especially in regards to soccer. The Past To give you a little bit of background information, I started playing soccer when I was 7 in a boy’s team. Girl soccer is not very popular in Germany, so there were no teams for my age. Consequences were that I never got a ball because “girls are not supposed to play soccer.” So long story short, I cut my hair and things got a little bit better,[…]Read More
Last year, I wrote about what it is like to be a Junior watching the seniors walk. Now, it is crazy and absolutely imaginable to think that it was my time to do the same thing. But what makes this day so special? It is the importance and the time that it is taken to emphasize that we do much more than just playing soccer. Each year for me has been a learning experience and impacted me so much. Through soccer, I learned that I can go beyond my limits, be a leader, and set examples. I always find myself[…]Read More
This does not only describe my first blog post, but also my senior year in which I finally got a starting position. Senior year could not have started better: For our soccer trip, we went to Chicago and my parents had planned a trip there as well. They were flying in to see their first collegiate game ever in person! They had not seen me play since I have left home 3 years ago, so this was huge for me! Preparations After a really hot and rough preseason (a few losses all against ranked teams), we were ready to make[…]Read More
This week at MNU the campus hosted an event called MAX. This event is one that i had a lot of fun going to as a high school student. Students come from all across the district to participate in a wide variety of events. This year we hosted around 700 students!
A palindrome is the description of words which can be read forwards and backwards. Have you ever tried reading the word ‘stressed’ backwards? With that being said, it perfectly describes my week. If you look at it from the beginning, it was very stressful. In the end, it turned out to be a really rewarding week. The crazy week I went from taking tests and quizzes to oversleeping, finishing homework assignments on the last minute, and finally a much-needed Easter break. At the end of the week, we had a game against Washburn University. We lost 0-2. Yet, it was[…]Read More
Hey Friends! Check this very short video of our time at an MNU basketball game! We sat (actually stood) in the student section, painted our chests, and cheered excessively. Every sporting event here at MNU is always a blast. Thanks for watching!
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!
So, everyone knows that part of being healthy is exercising, right? Are you part of #TeamGetSwole? Are you looking to lose a pound or two? Is basketball your thing? It’s a good thing we have our own gym and work out facilities here at MNU! We find the gym to be a great place to exercise when stressed out, exercise when we’re happy, exercise when we’re sad, exercise when we’re furious, and exercise when we’re feeling no emotions at all. However, we DO suggest using land gym a bit differently than we do in this video…
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!
Semi-finals of the Conference Tournament: When you think of a MNU vs Baker match, you immediately picture two big crowds, excitement, emotions, and competition. You have one side in red and blue and the other one in orange and white. You have loud cheers and an even louder bench. When you play Baker, you leave nothing on the field! When we played Baker in the semi-finals, it meant revenge. Last year, we lost against them in PKs and it was the end for our season. We lost 3:2 in season this year, clearly being the better team in the second[…]Read More
