Meetings and Memories

What do you want people to feel when they’re around you? For example, when you meet people, what is the main thing you want them to remember about you? These questions inspire today’s team blog, written by students in a journalism writing course at MBU.

Have you ever heard people say that “first impressions are everything,” or something along those lines? Well, there is social science to support the understanding that opinions people have about you are generally formed within the first few minutes of meeting you. So what about your first impressions? What about your last impressions? What exactly do you want people to think about you when they meet you?      Photo by Anna Jeschke

Does Easter Mean Even More This Year?

As Easter Sunday approaches we are able to reflect back on one of the most challenging years in the history of our nation. For some of us, Easter Sunday might be a time of questioning His presence during the unprecedented challenges of this past year. And that is understandable. Our God is big enough to answer all of life’s difficult questions. For others, Easter Sunday is a time of reassurance that an almighty God sent his son to die on the cross for our sins, and rise from the grave to give us all hope for a future. So the question we are asking our journalism students to blog about today is: In this particularly challenging year, what does Easter mean to you? These blogs are Part 1 of a two-part series.

Easter is a time of reflection and appreciation for the sacrifice Jesus Christ made for us on the cross.

College Students, if You Don’t Vote You Can’t Affect History

Some are calling the Nov. 3 Presidential Election the most important vote in modern history, others are saying nothing much will change in the United States of America regardless of the outcome. But what about college students, and specifically college journalists? What do our MBU Timeline writers say about this topic?


The only way to get one of these stickers is to actually go to your local polling station on Tuesday, Nov. 3, and cast your vote in the presidential election. College students, do that, wear your sticker proudly, and know that you have made a difference.      Copyright-free photo by Phillip Goldsberry

Should College Students Vote … or is it All Just a Waste of Time?

Some are calling the Nov. 3 Presidential Election the most important vote in modern history, others are saying nothing much will change in the United States of America regardless of the outcome. But what about college students, and specifically college journalists? What do our MBU Timeline writers say about this topic?

Protesters with signs march on Washington, D.C., in August of 1963, proving then what we know now, just how important it is for us all to vote in the presidential elections.

How Are You Dealing with Coronavirus? – Part 3

To protect themselves against the spread of COVID-19, families across America isolated themselves in their homes, finding creative ways to pass the time and learning important lessons along the way.

This is Part 3 of a three-part series.
