Homecoming is approaching and will roll through Missouri Baptist University Nov. 1-10.


Mr. Spartan Contest in 2012


The week has events for everyone and will allow the university to come together through theatrics, athletics, student activities and community involvement.

Julie Beehler, student activities Homecoming chair, said Homecoming 2013 is going to be better than ever this year.

“We are changing up some of the events and really trying to cater more towards college students with a 9 p.m. start time for Mr. Spartan and also making the Perk more edgy with a glow-in-the-dark theme,” said Beehler.

Homecoming at MBU is about traditions both new and old.

“It is also about tradition as we have had The Perk for years and continue to make new traditions like Mr. Spartan,” Beehler said. “Homecoming is a great chance for alumni to come back and see how the university has changed from when they were here.”
