MBU Begins New Era of Service and Outreach

On a crisp clear day earlier this fall the new president of Missouri Baptist University was sworn in, but attention was deflected toward a day of service as hundreds of students, faculty and staff members assembled food packages to be shipped to families in Haiti, and bows were tied on Teddy bears to be delivered to children at area hospitals.

Lindsey Peters, MBU student and founder of her own non-profit outreach, called Sharing Smiles, is in fact all smiles as she stands with a table full of Teddy bears that will be delivered to children at area hospitals. MBU students, faculty and staff members gathered at the Perk to help Peters tie bows on the stuffed bears as part of the university’s Day of Service this fall.

“Macbeth” Anything but Cursed as it takes MBU Stage

Perhaps you have heard the legend. If you have studied Shakespeare you probably have. You know, the one about the curse that comes to any production of “Macbeth” if the word “Macbeth” is even so much as murmured out loud during rehearsal. All wonderful superstitions aside, MBU’s production will prove to be historic in its own right.
