An Uncertain Future: Adapting to Changes from COVID-19

While coronavirus disrupted the latter half of the spring semester and all summer terms for the MBU community, the pandemic altered the plans of MBU seniors at a time when they would normally be transitioning from college life into the working world. As they face unanticipated goodbyes, a delayed graduation and an uncertain job market, MBU seniors are remaining optimistic in the face of their challenges.

This story is part of an ongoing series of stories and analyses produced by MBU Timeline staff members, focusing on several aspects of what the COVID-19 pandemic will have changed long after it has passed. Our writers try to answer a question you may have asked yourself: what happens next?     Photo courtesy of MBU University Communications — Graphic by Dylan White

Esports began at MBU in the winter of 2015 through a volleyball coach, a student and a simple conversation that brought this team to life. Since then the team has grown, the facilities have become more high tech and sophisticated, and the program is finding a place among some of the best in the nation.
