College life is more than lectures and midterms, It’s a place to enjoy yourself. MBU encourages every student to get involved in campus life through playing intramurals, joining a student organization, or watching a game. Make the most of your year on campus.
The Office of Student Activities serves the students through planning and developing campus activities, receptions, and events that are appropriate for student involvement. It serves as a resource to clubs and organizations by calendaring and coordinating their activities. The Office of Student Activities provides the home office for the Student Government Association and the Campus Activities Board.
The academic year at MBU is enlivened by a variety of social functions, including Homecoming, Welcome Weekend, The Perk: The Event, Spring Fling, and various trips and monthly events.
