50th Anniversary

Share your Pioneer memories with us!

In just two short years, MNU will celebrate its 50th year! In anticipation of our 50th anniversary in 2016, we want to know what you remember from your time at MNU. This is your chance to send us anything: photos, stories and your favorite memories!

Submit your thoughts or share photos about your time at MNU. We'll be collecting them to share throughout MNU's 50th anniversary year. 

Use the #MNU50 hashtag to tag any photos you'd like to share.


The goal is to gather social media, photos, stories, video, comments, items from the Marge Smith Archives and more to create a rich experience as we celebrate MNU’s 50th. Your contribution is important. Make sure to spread the word to your friends and college roommates. The winter months are a great time to start searching through your memorabilia for something to contribute. We will accept digital media from now until the anniversary celebration is over. Questions?

It was risky business to begin a college in the turbulent 1960s…

Despite the risks, the dream of a daring group of modern-day pioneers began to unfold on the fertile prairies of Kansas. With meager support and humble beginnings, these pioneers laid the foundations and set in motion what we know today as one of the great Christian liberal arts colleges in America—MidAmerica Nazarene College.
