Hannibal-LaGrange University has been recognized for its focus on missions, which is facilitated through the many opportunities offered its students, faculty, and staff to participate in missions, both locally and abroad. Various trips are taken throughout the year, but the vast majority of these take place during spring break and over the summer months. Our annual Beach Reach trip to Panama City Beach, Florida will once again take place in March over spring break. One of the largest mission opportunities through HLGU is the May-Mester, where groups of students travel to a location to serve for the month of May. Some of this year’s alternative summer mission trips include students, faculty, and staff attending Crossover Columbus, OH, with the SBC, along with another group traveling to Romania. The New Edition, HLGU’s traveling repertory troupe specializing in Christian theatre, will once again be traveling to Switzerland and Germany in July and yet another HLGU group will be headed to Alaska this summer.
HLGU's Division of Nursing will be returning to the Dominican Republic again in 2015.
