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.

As of fall 2018, MBU has implemented service days to take place each semester, during which students and staff can partake in service activities while also enjoying free food, yard games and live music.
