Student Orientation - Missouri Baptist University

MBU is proud to be an approved teach-out institution for Fontbonne University students. RSVP now to attend our Fontbonne Transfer Day event on Tuesday, April 23.


Start your Spartan Journey!

Student Orientation is designed to help you explore MBU, meet the staff and advisors who will help you through the next few years, and make friends! During the orientation process, you will get to meet with people who might be from your same city, have declared your same major, or will live in your same residence hall. You will gain important information, tour your campus, and eat together. But it’s not all fun and games. After all, you’re going to college to advance your education! During your Orientation, you will take all the steps necessary to be successful at MBU. That means getting your student identification, parking sticker, logging into Canvas, and sitting through informative presentations.
