A Fall Day at the Saint Louis Zoo

The Saint Louis Zoo looks beautiful as the park prepares for the holiday season. The Zoo’s Wild Lights event runs select nights throughout December and features light displays as well as fun holiday themed activities. Zoo guests can listen to carolers sing, drink hot chocolate and watch ice sculptures being created. A selection of animal exhibits will also be open during the Wild Lights event plus kids’ rides and shopping and souvenir opportunities.

Commuters With a Voice

Missouri Baptist University is home for many, but the majority of students at MBU are commuters. Commuter life is much different from resident life, and each commuter’s daily life expresses variety as well.

The Perk an Event for the Ages at MBU

The Perk event celebrated its 20th year recently in Muncy Gym, growing from a small gathering in 1996 to a full concert coffeehouse music event that entertained hundreds of MBU students. This year’s event, carrying the name “The Perk 20,” featured local artist Kenny DeShields.

MBU Hangouts

Missouri Baptist University might be a small campus, but do not worry students will still find areas that are tucked away where they can have down time after going from class to class. Or places to hang with friends and areas to study inside and outside on campus at MBU.
