The largest Powerball jackpot in history climbed to $1.6 billion — that’s BILLION — before three winning tickets produced the magic numbers recently, in California, Tennessee and Florida. Each winner will walk away with more than $330 million after taxes. In an instant lives are changed, bank accounts will soar, wildest dreams will be realized and, undoubtedly, problems will arise. One couple sharing a winning ticket, from Tennessee, has come forward, but the other two winners remain in hiding, no doubt getting their financial affairs in order before claiming more money than they could ever imagine. So we’ve asked MBU Timeline writers to blog about what they would do with that kind of money, this unimaginable wealth that has us all pondering, wishing … perhaps hoping. And we have also sent reporters out across campus to ask faculty, staff and students the same question: What would you do with all that money?

A group of Missouri Baptist University students went to Casa Loma on Oct. 30 to celebrate Halloween. Students dressed up and a costume contest was held, in which a guy dressed as Obi Wan Kenobi, a character from Star Wars, won. MBU students enjoyed swing dancing through the night.
MBU Timeline staffers Lydia Milan and Stuart Slates set out across the Missouri Baptist University campus with a question of the week for students, staff and faculty members. With colleges preparing for football playoffs and bowl games, and the NFL heading down the home stretch toward the playoffs and Super Bowl, this week’s question is: What is your favorite football tradition?
With the recent anniversary of the falling of the Berlin Wall, Timeline staffers took a moment to blog on the significance and impact that day played in history. That day signified the end of an era of depression and injustice in Germany. Not only did it close the time of the Cold War, but it marked a bright journey for peace.
