Meetings and Memories

What do you want people to feel when they’re around you? For example, when you meet people, what is the main thing you want them to remember about you? These questions inspire today’s team blog, written by students in a journalism writing course at MBU.

Have you ever heard people say that “first impressions are everything,” or something along those lines? Well, there is social science to support the understanding that opinions people have about you are generally formed within the first few minutes of meeting you. So what about your first impressions? What about your last impressions? What exactly do you want people to think about you when they meet you?      Photo by Anna Jeschke

PART 8: THE DAY THE WORLD CHANGED: On the 20th Anniversary of September 11, 2001, MBU Faculty and Staff Remember and Reflect

In the eighth of our 8-part series, we conclude our historic series with interviews of two MBU community members who have very specific ties to our nation’s military. Pam Hiebert, associate director of student financial services, and Jose Silva, adjunct music instructor, reflect on Sept. 11, 2001, remembering the 20-year anniversary of the infamous day.

The North Tower and South Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City collapsed during the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. This photo was captured by MBU’s Heather Goodin just two days before America was changed forever. Notice the date stamp in the bottom right corner as this photo was shot with film.     Photo by Heather Goodin

MBU Faith and Learning Symposium a Huge Success

Whenever a university is able to combine strong nationally renowned scholarly research with Christian faith and fellowship, topped off with a delicious meal, you have a fantastic day.

Dr. Keith Beutler, professor of history at Missouri Baptist University, finishes the day’s presentations in strong fashion as the keynote speaker during the third annual Faith and Learning Symposium. The conference ran throughout the day Friday, April 9, streaming live from the Pitch Room of the Learning Center.            Photos by Dr. C. Allin Means
