Life at MVNU is so much more than sitting in a classroom.
It's discovering new things about yourself. It's going on adventures with new friends. It's learning what you're passionate about and connecting with people who share that passion. It's figuring out who you are, and deciding who you want to be. It's all the people you meet along the way, including YOU.
Life at MVNU goes way beyond the books. We want you to have every opportunity to try new things and get more involved in what you already enjoy and care about. Whether you join one of the more than 50 student-led clubs or organizations (or start one of your own); engage in a little friendly (and free!) competition for one of the coveted intramural championship shirts; rent a kayak or bike from our REC for a day on the Kokosing river or trail with friends; or plug into a small group, CoSMO service project, or explore one of our international travel options — you are sure to find adventure here.
