During the February in-service day at Missouri Baptist University, faculty and staff members worked side-by-side to barricade doors and put into practice what officers taught them in case an actual active shooting situation were to reach MBU’s campus. The hope is that this scenario would never happen in real life, but that if it does, faculty, staff and students will be prepared.

Esports Hitting Stride at MBU

Esports began at MBU in the winter of 2015 through a volleyball coach, a student and a simple conversation that brought this team to life.
