Ask The Trailblazer

February 2, 2016 | By | No Comments

Hey everyone! So, if you didn’t know, I’m video editor for The Trailblazer at MNU.

This semester, we’re trying something we’ve never done before. We’re launching a video series called “Ask The Trailblazer,” where students can submit anonymous questions regarding anything (yes, anything) about MNU. Then, The Trailblazer chooses questions to find the answers to.

The videographers find the right people to interview, and get the answers to the questions you’ve always wondered, or the questions you’re too worried about asking in public.

We’re hoping to launch our first video in the next week or so.

I’m really excited about this video series, so if you have any questions, ASK!

Here are a few examples of things people have already submitted:

-Why do students have to get the unlimited meal plan?

-How to REs decide when open dorm hours are/why did they choose those times and days?

-Did MNU get Google Fiber? Are we using it?

So… if you have a question to ask, here’s the link to the Google Form that you can submit it anonymously!

A Passion to Serve at MNU

January 21, 2016 | By | No Comments

MNU has lots of wonderful ministries that give students the opportunity to go into the community and serve others.

To be honest, I’ve been to a few ministries, but haven’t found time in my schedule to regularly commit to attend a ministry.

Last week, I was hired to create the MNU Ministries launch video for this Spring 2016. It was such a blessing to me because it allowed me to hear impactful stories from students who have been investing in ministries for a full semester. It’s encouraging to know that there is a group of students at MNU that devote time to ministries every week.

I love attending a school that equips students to serve in the community, and do it with the passions and talents that the Lord has given them. There are many different ministries, which I’ve listed below in case you’re curious about them.

LOL (Loving on Littles) – A group of students that goes to an apartment complex and plays with children.

Deep Cries Out – An anti-human trafficking ministry that educates themselves, brainstorms ways to help, and prays for the victims.

Freedom Fire – A group of students that goes to a community center to play with children and tell them the Gospel.

EMT (Emergency Mission Team) – This is a new ministry this semester. This group will be available for any “emergencies” that come up in the community.

SMILE (Students Ministering in the Lives of the Elderly) – This group of students goes to a nursing home and sings hymns to the elderly.

Center of Grace – This group of students goes to a soup kitchen and serves people in the community.

I’ve attached the video below so that you can hear from the students yourselves. I hope that you’re inspired and encouraged like I was!

If you’re an MNU student, it’s never too late to sign up for a ministry, or simply attend for a week. :)

If you’re not an MNU student yet, this is what you have to look forward to! A university with a passion to serve, that encourages and equips students to go out and be the hands and feet of Jesus.

Does love at first sight exist?

Recap:

Many studies have been done to test the mathematical factors of true love.  In this video I talk about a few studies I researched and found interesting.

With all religion aside, what’s your best chances of finding the “one”?

P.S. I’ll apologize in advance for the dancing at the end. :)

I hope every one has a GREAT winter break & spends time with the ones they love.

Dating at MNU

November 10, 2015 | By | One Comment

For those who don’t know, I have a boyfriend that doesn’t go to MNU. Austin attends Saint Mary’s in Leavenworth, KS (the polar opposite direction of Olathe.)

Even though I get to see all these happy couples together on campus, sometimes I’m happy that he doesn’t go to the same university as me. One reason being that he is incredibly competitive with me; the other is that “Ring by Spring” is so real it’s scary.

Here at MNU, if you sit with a member of the opposite sex 3 or more times, you are automatically considered dating. Oh my. I hear you all gasping now.

One of my friends, Caleb, decided to make a video about the dating culture at MNU…featuring yours truly.

Please enjoy.

#TBT Welcome Week

October 1, 2015 | By | No Comments

The semester starts and you have a combination of confused freshmen and upperclassmen who are just ready to be finished with school already, but there is one week full of events that everyone enjoys: Welcome Week!

So whether it’s White Light or Paint Wars that grabs your attention, something is ALWAYS appealing about the first week of school.

The gang, post paint wars!

But, for some of us, the first week of school isn’t about the ASG events. While they’re super fun and I always look forward to going, it’s the auditions for the fall play/musical that gets me going every year. This year is musical year and we had auditions for Brigadoon (Alan Jay Lerner) on the SECOND day of school! Of course, I just had to vlog about it, AND you can find that video below!

 

 

Be prepared, because this is one of the calmest vlogs I’ll post about Brigadoon. Check back weekly, especially as opening night approaches, for more vlogs about the adventures and a behind-the-scenes look at MNU’s Fall Musical Brigadoon!
