Information for Adult Learners
I encourage students to find their “one thing,” meaning to develop a passion for a program of study or career goal that will give them direction and drive to succeed. Equally important, however, is for each MU student to meet the greatest expectation of all, which is to earn a Methodist University degree. The gratification that comes from this achievement is unequalled. As I shake the hand of each graduating student, I see the sense of pride in their eyes and in their families and friends who are present for this momentous occasion. From knowing your ”one thing” to meeting the “greatest expectation” is quite a journey, but well worth the investment.
— Dr. Ben Hancock, Jr., President
