    I really like MVNU. MVNU offers great academics, fun activities, and environment. Although academics are usually a main factor in deciding where to attend college, entertainment and activities are also important. Mount Vernon Nazarene University provides fun-packed movie nights, sports activities, bomb fires and lots more! MVNU is also a place to grow spiritually with the LORD. A student can enjoy chapels, communion, and service in the community. Students can join Cosmo groups, which are a group of students who go into the community and help serve others. For example: the elderly, homeless, underprivileged, adults, and children.

    I had a pretty great high school experience, and was afraid that college would pale in comparison to the fun times I had back then. MVNU did not disappoint, though. I am always chomping at the bit to get back on campus after summer break. I always have a blast. The friends I have made here are ones I hope I'll never lose!

    The campus is beautiful, and there are things to do around campus. There is a bike trail and a movie theater very near to campus, and cool activities such as Sunfest come to campus each year. It is definitely not a city environment, so if you are looking for lots of malls and clubs, this is not the school for you.

    For me it is almost financially impossible to return to Mount Vernon Nazarene University. However, I love this college. There is so much to do including Cosmo groups (community service), intramurals, there is great classes, and a wonderful christian atmosphere. I have a huge heart for MVNU and that is why I'm doing so much work to get scholarships!
