Missouri Baptist University’s annual Homecoming event brings alumni, students and family members to campus each year, culminating with a football game and, the night before, thePerk , a concert in the Muncy Gym that features a local act, MBU talent and plenty of free coffee and food. This year the event featured the St. Louis band, We Are Root Mod.
