The Lumineers Strike at the Heart with “III”

The Lumineers released their third studio album, “III,” in September 2019, adding another release to their catalog of stripped back folk rock the band is known for. The record itself is an emotional journey through the story of a family and its generational battles with addiction and familial neglect.

The Lumineers perform at Brixton Academy in London, England, in April 2016. The band’s debut self-titled release, “The Lumineers,” is a certified triple platinum in the U.S. and Canada, and their sophomore record, “Cleopatra,” is certified platinum in the U.S. as well.      Photo by Drew de F Fawkes.

Real-Time Observations from Student Journalists on This Election Day

As Election Day 2020 begins moving from standing in lines and voting to watching phones and TV screens for indications of who might be America’s president, college students could possibly make all the difference in America for the next four years. Our MBU Timeline student journalists took photos today and penned their observations on this historic day.


The sun is barely peaking over the roof at Parkway South High School as voters line up first thing in the morning to cast their ballots in today’s election. At around 7 a.m., when MBU Timeline staffer Jack Gienke took this photo, there were a few hundred voters already in line. Voter turnout could reach a record high today.     Photo by Jack Gienke

Stop Listening, Start Changing

Modern day slavery is not just some far-away myth, it is real. In fact, some estimates have it listed as a $150 billion industry. MBU students are standing up against this heinous offense, bringing awareness to the issue and doing something about it.

Service Day Brings Out the Best of MBU Students, Faculty

MBU’s Service Day encourages giving back to others and helping those who are less fortunate or need to be touched with the love of Christ. The MBU community had the opportunity to spread joy to children in hospitals with Sharing Smiles and express their appreciation for those who served in the military with Operation Gratitude, all while having fellowship with each other.

Krispy Kreme On A Monday

Student Activities surprised students with free Krispy Kreme donuts on a rainy Monday morning earlier this semester. Awakened by the morning thunderstorms, a donut and juice on students’ way to class was the perfect turn-a-round for the gloomy morning.
