In Fall 2019, our campus library was refurbished and reopened as our new Jung-Kellogg Learning Center, and became home to not only great library resources, but provided more modern spaces to study, present, communicate and learn for students. The complete alumni-funded project allowed the creation of improved workplaces like our Fish Makerspace, the Petty Commons, the Gwaltney Quiet Room and a few others, each space purposing a different source of opportunity to increase teamwork and creativity, while including state-of-the-art technology. Our goals for the new Learning Center are to allow students a stimulating area to work, a place to access resources galore and reach their own academic goals.
What started out as a tradition turned into a full-fledged coffeehouse at the center of MBU’s main campus. Founded in 2007, the Perk is a full-service, on-campus coffee house on the southern edge of campus. The staple of campus life during the school day, we offer an inviting atmosphere for the MBU campus to come together over quality beverages. The Perk serves organic, fair-trade coffee from St. Louis-based Chauvin Coffee, as well as speciality teas. You can keep up with our events on Facebook and Instagram.
Living on campus is one of the most exciting parts of the college experience. MBU believes in building a community of students. That’s why we offer a variety of living options on-campus: modern residence halls, apartments and a hybrid of both.
