Contributing to her success, MNU was the perfect place for Joslene to learn. She found smaller groups, which were well organized, making it easier to manage her studies and connect with other students who were just as dedicated. Her passion for wonder was encouraged.

With a whole community effort, MNU’s new freshman class, numbering 223, is the largest since 2010 (229). This represents a 26.7 % increase over 2016 and is the second largest class since 2006.
