What Students Are Saying

3.97 Average Rating
This is a wonderful campus and a very christian atmosphere
Rebbecca from Danville, OH
Get to know your admission counselor they love to work with prospective students. Don't get your books in the Cougar Corner bookstore they are so much cheaper on amazon and ohiolink. Keep your dorm room door open for at least the first month because people will stop in and become friends with you. Go to Friday Night Live, play gotcha in jterm, play every intramural you can, and work hard in classes.
Tiffany from Vermilion, OH
Build a relationship with your admissions counselor. They are totally willing to work with you as you go through the application process. Take advantage of visit days and ask questions of current students and professors to get a true feel for the MVNU community.
M from OH
Freshman move in week is jam packed with events for the new students. You might think some of the events are dumb, or that you don't want to go, but don't just blow it off! That first week of school is a great time to meet a lot of new people, and doing that can help college feel more like home in just a matter of days. Some of those people might become your best friends! (And even if you really didn't want to be at whatever event is going on, you're probably not alone, so find some people to pass the time with!)
Sara from Lancaster, OH
If you have not already visited MVNU, I would recommend making a quick call or visit their website and schedule a visit. You could visit on a specified visit day, which are listed on MVNU's website, or you could take a personal visit. It is always wise to visit a University so that you can make the best decision for yourself; if the University provides what you are looking for.

Make sure you are in constant communication with the financial aid office, that way they become familiar with you. If any complications occur it will be easier to figure out for both you and the office.
Amy from Apple Creek, OH
If you desire to come to MVNU, I suggest calling and getting a personal tour and meeting with your advisor for your major of choice. Also, there are visit days with groups called MVNYou days, and they are the first Monday of every month during the school calendar.
