MVNU looks forward to Homecoming weekend


A weekend full of celebration, reunion, laughs, memories, and more is just around the corner.

Homecoming weekend is Nov, 11-12 for Mount Vernon Nazarene University.

Homecoming weekend has proven, in years past, to be a way for alumni to reconnect with each other and the University. Cougars from all graduating classes come together for a weekend to celebrate and remember MVNU (MVNC).

Events have been set in place by both MVNU administration and SGA to assure alumni that they have in fact returned home.
