MVNU is more than a school, it is a Christian community that encourages educational, social, and spiritual growth. If you are looking for a small Christian liberal arts college then you should definitely consider MVNU!
M from OH
Mount Vernon Nazarene University is the perfect school to attend if you are looking for a small campus with a great christian atmosphere. The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Mount Vernon Nazarene University is the awesome community of friends and mentors that are available. The most amazing part is that even the professors make an effort to be a part of your college experience, which is a very comforting thing!
Amy from Apple Creek, OH
Mount Vernon is a place where people care about your personal, spiritual, and academic life. It's small enough that you can know everyone, but big enough to keep your business personal. Mount Vernon's love for God is known the minute you walk on campus.
