MBU’s Library Getting Full Wall-to-Wall Renovation

These paperback books are slowly exiting the library. More than 30,000 volumes are being removed. Today, the library faculty and staff  members work each day cycling through each book to determine what to keep and what to say goodbye to.

MBU’s Inaugural Day of Service on Tuesday, Oct. 16, will give students the opportunity to serve with MBU student Lindsey Peters and her charity, Sharing Smiles, to make stuffed bears to brighten the days of children in hospitals.

Year’s First Spartan Preview Day Draws Nice Crowd

The small size of Missouri Baptist University allows for special events for prospective students. The university staff wants every prospective student to feel at home when they visit MBU. This day allows students to talk with professors, tour campus and residential halls, and see what MBU has to offer.

It’s About Loving the City, Loving its People

It is the wealthiest county per capita in the entire state of Missouri, yet St. Charles is far from insulated from the poverty and struggles faced by any other county or city in the region, and that’s where We Love St. Charles steps in to help.
