And so begins the busiest month of the semester:
In February, there’s a lot going on at MNU, so here’s what you can be excited for:
The RA Selection Process
Every spring, the interview process to select new RAs begins. Resident Assistants are the liaison between the Residential Life staff, and the residents of the on-campus dorms, so you can imagine a rigorous interview process. RAs are typically the go-to person for any issue with your room, any type of question, or, in some cases, for advice and guidance. These are the people you spend a lot of your time with, and are usually the smiling face welcoming you to your new home for a year.
ASG Exec Elections and Appointments
Associated Student Government begins the election process for the executive board in February as well. This results in a flurry of petitions going around campus, as well as campaign posters and new creative campaigning strategies each year. The members of the newly elected board will be the student-chosen group of people to lead events, activities, and support for all traditional undergraduate students of MNU. New incoming and returning students can look forward to a Welcome Week full of events to get the year kicked off in the fall.
MNU SERVEteams Audition and Interviews
Each summer, groups of students from MNU go out into the MNU Community/region to Nazarene district assemblies. They are not only a publicity tool for our university, but a way for the university to minister in places it normally wouldn’t be able to. Different teams include a sponsor team, a worship team and a vocal team.
Put all three of the above opportunities with tests ramping up, performances, class time, jobs, and sports, and you get a lot of very busy college students.
Busy doesn’t necessarily have to mean stressed, though, and the month is one of the funnest.
With so many things going on, and each of us committing time and energy to so much, I’d like to leave you all with a bible verse:
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Thanks, and have a great week!
