This year’s class of new students is the largest since 2010. This represents a 26.7 percent increase over 2016. Transfer students are also up. The total incoming class is 313 this year compared to 260 in 2016.

Derry Ebert, associate vice president and dean for traditional enrollment, attributes the increase to several initiatives. Among them, admissions counselors worked diligently to
increase the number of students who visited the campus in order to share the MNU story and its pioneering spirit.

“We redesigned our campus visit programs, so students could experience MNU and get to know who we are and the values we hold,” Ebert says. “We didn’t just look for any students, but
rather students who would find our community a good fit." Ebert also says the whole campus effort to bring in this class included faculty, facilities staff, coaches, resident educators,
current students and the president.

“We all worked together to let prospective students and their families know that their life could be forever changed and transformed, academically and spiritually at MNU,” he says.
