“There is something special about reconnecting with friends who helped shape us and that is exactly why college class reunions are so meaningful,” said Executive Director of Alumni Relations and Advancement Brad Kochis (’94). “We are excited to welcome alumni back to campus to celebrate and reminisce with their college friends and beloved faculty and staff!”

President Dr. Henry W. Spaulding II, invites alumni, faculty, staff and friends to join him for the President’s Prayer Breakfast on Nov. 12, at 8 a.m. The opening event is an opportunity for the MVNU Community to come together to offer prayer for all needs of the university.
