I love the opportunities Mobap has to offer. They have tons of undergraduate degree programs and several master programs to choose from. It's a great athletic community as the majority of students are athlete's and its not uncommon to catch all the sports teams supporting one another. It's a loving and friendly environment at Mobap with tons of opportunities to advance your career and spiritual growth.

Missouri Baptist University is nestled right in the heart of St. Louis, Missouri. Even though you are in the city, you would not believe it when you are standing in the center of our quaint campus. The brick buildings possess a traditional character highlighting our university's past and those students who have walked the halls before while the more recent buildings point to the future of not only the campus but the students as well. MBU also boasts the largest campus coffee house in St. Louis which lives up to its name as there is always an amazing cup of coffee served there along with a smile from the friendly staff comprised of our students. If sports is your cup of coffee instead, MBU offers many sporting events to observe which always draws a lively crowd. Resident life also hosts many events throughout the year which help unite the students of MBU. The on-campus housing is fairly new and is well taken care of. Living on campus provides students with the feeling of living in a small village especially as one walks down the winding path listening to students laugh, music playing, and the wildlife that call the many trees home. The greatest aspect of Missouri Baptist University isn't the buildings or the food or the sports but the faculty and students that call campus home. The Christian mission of MBU is evident in the lives of the faculty who care for their students on a personal level, making sure that each individual student doesn't feel like only a number. The professors all have open door policies and are prepared to help students with any problems they may have, educational or personal. Since the student body is not very large, everybody knows each other and you can't walk down the sidewalk without seeing someone you know. The motto at Missouri Baptist University is "Shine On" and that's exactly what this atmosphere allows students to do.

Payten - 05/24/2018

I absolutely love Missouri Baptist. I've never once encountered someone who didn't have a smile on their face, even on my campus visit. Everyone is so nice and don't hesitate to help you with anything you might need. The campus reflects its students and staff perfectly, its so beautiful and I love sitting outside doing homework or just talking to all the friends I've made there! The best decision I've made was to attend MBU!

Jordyn - 03/06/2018

Missouri Baptist University is a beautiful campus where you happen to see smiles every way you turn. There's a lot of fun in and out of the classroom and the professors are fantastic people. The athletic program is insanely into sports. Every athlete from each sport trains and works incredibly hard in and out of the classroom too.

    Start planning early.

By the time you get to your senior year you should have planned out what will be your classes for your final year in high school, what colleges you want to apply at, and even the back up colleges just in case you don't get in the ones that are your top choice. Planning... That is my advise. Plan every move you are going to make moving forward in your life as a senior in high school.

  3. What's unique about your campus?

    Most people that know me would think my answer to this question would be the athletic programs. While that is one of my reasons for choosing Missouri Baptist University, it is not the only reason. MO Bap. was one of the few schools that offered the degree I want to obtain. I looked all over for something that would incorporate my basket ball, wanting to be a physical trainer and eventually a coach. This institution offered the classes I need to get where I want to be in life.

  9. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The financial aid and records office seem to have been a little unorganized lately. For instance, my scholarship did not get put through until the very last minute which kept me from being able to sign up for my fall '09 classes. While in the records office, I asked three different people the same question and got three different answers; this was very frustrating.
