I know that most of my posts have lots of humor and are light-hearted but this one is gonna take on a more serious feel about myself and the presence/impact of MNU in my life.
A week ago my great-granny died and there were a lot of emotions. Even though her dying was very sad, it was a celebration because we all know that she is in Heaven. When tragedy strikes it is always great to have people who care about you to help and comfort you. Being here on campus gave me such a great support system around me. My roommate and other friends on my hall all comforted me when we found out that she had passed and it felt so good to have them with me.
MNU is such a great place of community. There are so many people on campus that truly care about each of the students that go here. I continually was checked up on by multiple professors about how I was doing since the funeral. Going to any other school would provide professors that either had too many students to even know me personally or just don’t care in general. But here at MidAmerica the professors and staff and students all have such a sense of community and love for one another. MNU is such an amazing place to be.
