CA-2-The Lou

No. I don’t get homesick, even though I am nearly 2,000 miles from my hometown of Turlock, California. In fact, St. Louis reminds me of California in a weird way. Nothing is the same between the Midwest and the West Coast, but the love I have for them individually is identical.

The view from this little known spot along the California coast, called Sunset Beach and located 40 minutes north of Monterey, is incredible and one of a kind, but somehow the prairie views and rolling hills of the Midwest have grown on me, too. And the Arch is certainly something to behold.

If you’ve seen a professor traveling around campus with his guitar in tow, then you’ve seen Dave Smith, an MBU math professor who exemplifies servant leadership and a heart of true worship on and off campus.

Professor Dave Smith smiles and plays the guitar with joy, playing for his students to brighten up their Monday morning. A softspoken Renaissance Man, Smith also enjoys running marathons. He runs over 2,000 miles each year. And he’s won the highest faculty award at MBU.

It’s a question that has been presented to college students for as long as there have been colleges: What do you plan to do with your life after you graduate?

With so much information out there on financial aid, student loans, scholarships, tuition waivers, deferred loan payments and on and on, it is crucial for students to know exactly what they are getting in to before taking on debt to pay for college.

Construction for Spartan Field started in 2013 and already hosts sporting events such as soccer and lacrosse games, and it plays host to the MBU football team’s practices. The next step is looking toward hosting MBU football games.
