Faces of thePerk

Isn’t it great to see faces again this semester? Smiling faces, angry faces, laughing faces, stressed-out faces, praying faces … just seeing faces on campus is such a positive aspect of this current semester. ThePerk is one of students’ favorite locations on the MBU campus. In the fall of 2020, everyone at MBU wore masks because of the pandemic. As we continue to emerge from living through a season with required face coverings, MBU photojournalists Emily Heflin and Madisyn House capture some new and familiar faces that we can now see around thePerk.

This American breakfast, literally called This American Breakfast on the menu at The Mud House, includes the classic morning staples of scrambled eggs, bacon, roasted potatoes, toast and jam, but each with a bit of an upscale approach.      Photos by Molly Munoz

MBU’s Service Day encourages giving back to others and helping those who are less fortunate or need to be touched with the love of Christ. The MBU community had the opportunity to spread joy to children in hospitals with Sharing Smiles and express their appreciation for those who served in the military with Operation Gratitude, all while having fellowship with each other.
