North Hall Residents Greeted by New Director

Missouri Baptist University’s North Hall begins the fall semester with a new resident director, and she may be a familiar face to many students and faculty members at MBU. Meredith Linn, a former North Hall resident and 2019 MBU graduate, is excited to again be a part of the MBU community and connect with the building of young women she has been called to lead.
