“Reflecting on the quality of education that I received at MLC and the quality of the professors that I had throughout the program, I don’t think I could have found that care and attention anywhere else.”

Gretchen HintzMS Ed 2015, Leadership Emphasis

“I love the fact that everyone is so friendly and genuine at MLC. It amazes me how everyone smiles and says hi even if you’ve only chatted once. The unity of the student body is very apparent to me, and the faith that unifies them is incredible.”
