As we continue pulling out of COVID-19, we look back and note that many universities across the United States chose different paths to deal with the pandemic. With other schools closing down, or canceling on-campus activities, Missouri Baptist University made every effort to give students some kind of normalcy during those troubling times. This Photo Gallery highlights a few of the outdoor activities held in the fall semester of the 2020-21 school year.
