Welcome Weekend 2017

Welcome Weekend is a three-day event filled with fun, food and adventure – and a great way to be immersed into the culture of MBU. Unload your stuff, kiss mom and dad goodbye and let the party begin! Welcome Weekend 2017 will be held August 18-19 at our Main West County campus.

Throughout Welcome Weekend you’ll learn what it means to be a student at MBU – and have a blast doing it! You’ll have fun, while at the same time learning the ins and outs of life on campus. Welcome Weekend will help you start your life at MBU with a running leap.
