MNU news

Congratulations Graduates

The rhythm of life is about to change on campuses everywhere and MNU is no different. Many classrooms will be quiet and halls will empty because this Saturday is Commencement. More than 600 students who have committed themselves to learning and preparing for something more through traditional, accelerated, graduate and online coursework will become graduates.

Many will start the job search in earnest next week, seeking to find fulfilling work. Some have already landed jobs and will begin them soon. We know they will carry their Pioneer spirit into the workplace. Still others are planning to continue their education in graduate programs across the country. We pray for continued determination in reaching their goals.

This month we’ll be telling you stories of our graduates and what they are doing now. The first story is about Tyler Hageman, a 2013 grad in chemistry. Tyler’s now in a research fellowship at the University of Kansas, working on his doctorate in chemistry. His research will help many patients with arthritis or cancer have confidence that their medication is of consistent strength each time they get a refill—important work. Click over to his story here.  

Among the 2016 graduates who will continue their education in graduate programs is Blake Robberson, who has been accepted at the Center for Veterinary Health Sciences at Oklahoma State University.

Joey Alligier will attend Nazarene Theological Seminary to earn a master’s in intercultural studies.

So whether they are starting a job, continuing school or going for that next promotion, we congratulate all the Pioneer grads. We’re all rooting for you. You make us proud. Your Pioneer staff and faculty will stay busy this summer preparing to welcome a new class of Pioneers in a few months, and then a new academic year will begin. The rhythm changes, but the stories go on.
