Communications Seniors Conquer Their Capstones

The seniors of the spring 2022 Senior Communications Seminar class work on capstone projects as a way to show off their personal portfolios and their communications skills they have learned during their enrollment at Missouri Baptist University.

Challenging Changes Create Cohesive Competition

Despite the coaching changes the men’s JV volleyball team at Missouri Baptist University has experienced this school year, they have been able to play well together during their spring 2022 season while continuing to grow as a cohesive unit.

Before every game and after every timeout as they break out onto the court, men’s JV volleyball players put their hands up in the air signifying unity and fellowship among the team. This was the last time during the team’s last home against William Penn Academy that they rallied together during their competitive 2022 spring season.     Photo by Jessica Kunkel

Time to Be Thankful and Gather With Special Friends and Family

Thanksgiving is a time to appreciate blessings and experience fun activities with friends and family. There are some standard traditions associated with each gathering, however many families add their own unique traditions to these already fun-filled holidays, resulting in joyous and long-lasting memories.

Everyone celebrates Thanksgiving in their own special way, but regardless, there’s always a variety of delicious foods to choose from.     Photo by Jessica Kunkel
