Viking Views Summer 2021 (FB)

IT'S A GREAT DAY TO BE A It's a great day to be a Viking. These eight words have rung true since our founding in 1889. The COVID-19 pandemic put a lot of obstacles in our path, but we met every challenge head-on, ready to rise above and stand together. We’re Vikings. In 2020, to ensure we kept our campus community safe, we adapted our curriculum delivery and adjusted operations around campus to meet CDC guidelines. In the spring of 2021, we were proud to be part of the vaccine efforts in Saline County. We partnered with Fitzgibbon Hospital and the Saline County Health Department to distribute more than 12,000 COVID-19 vaccines here on the Missouri Valley College campus. As we approach the 2021-2022 academic year with hope for the future and a return to normalcy, we are excited to have students back on campus. The Delta variant surging through the country is an obstacle, but it is not going to block our path. Missouri Valley College continues to push forward with academic excellence in over 30 programs, giving students the tools they need to be successful. Our Drive 60 Scholarship allows access and affordability to commuter students within a 60-mile radius of Missouri Valley College. In addition, plans are being made to double the size of the nursing facility. Lastly, MVC is a beacon for diversity. We’re proud to represent 46 states and 56 countries. As the sun rises over Baity Hall, the campus lights up with a familiar glow. A glow that reminds us how far we’ve come and how we've remained stronger, together. It is a great day to be a Viking and we look forward to seeing you on campus soon. 15
