Student Voice


"I truly appreciate all the steps that the MVNU administration and Facilities Services take to promote safety, both on the individual and community levels. MVNU is a place where I feel a genuine sense of safety and that is due in large part to their efforts. I think that we, as students, need to continue to be mindful of safety concerns and understand that we play the main role in our safety."

- Justin Nowicki,
Senior President-Elect
