The Magic House, Busch Stadium and The Muny are among event locations listed for MBU alumni and families this summer. 


For the third consecutive year, Missouri Baptist University Alumni Relations will be coordinating a series of events called “Spartan Summer Nights” this summer across the St. Louis area.

According to Lydia Keller, advancement services coordinator, events will be held at the following St. Louis attractions: The Magic House, Busch Stadium and The Muny in Forest Park.

The Magic House event is set for 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, June 17, and it is free of charge. It will be closed to the public and light snacks are included.

The St. Louis Cardinals game alumni event is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, July 8, at Busch Stadium.

The cost for the game is $55 for a ticket that includes reserved seats from the Coca-Cola Scoreboard Patio and a two-hour all-you-can-eat buffet.

The Muny event is set for 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 16, to see the final show of The Muny’s 96th season, “Hello Dolly!”

The cost will be $30, which includes a reserved seat at the show and a tour of the set.

The events are planned not only for alumni.

“Spartan Summer Nights is an annual event series that reconnects alumni and their families with MBU,” said Keller.

The Institutional Advancement and Alumni Relations departments work together to coordinate each event to the detail so that everyone makes memories for a lifetime, not only with MBU, but with their families, too.

The specific details for each event are still in the process of being prepared, but will be available to the public soon.

Spartan Summer Nights will continue to be a series of events alumni look forward to presenting every year.
