Join us for 50's Nostalgia Night!
Tuesday, February 19th

Hannibal-LaGrange University will be holding a 1950s themed dinner on February 19th beginning at 5 pm in the cafeteria. Admission is $5 and is open to the public.

The menu for the night includes classic '50s fare with burgers, fries, and milkshakes made by Fresh Ideas, the new food service at HLGU.

Entertainment will be provided by a few different music groups including the HLGU band, which will be performing classic songs such as La Bamba and Twist and Shout. Another band, made of students and faculty will play selections such as Jailhouse Rock, Rock around the Clock, Johnnie B. Goode, and I can't Help Falling in Love with You.

"Members of Choir will perform Silhouettes and New Girl in Town, said Music Department Chair Dr. John Booth. "The band will take you back to your high school hoops days when the pep band played at the games. We believe that with XM and Sirius Radio available there will be many students who have connected with these songs from the '50s."

It is sure to be an entertaining evening for all those attending. The event is open to the public.
Cost is $5
. For more information, contact Student Activities Director Richard Medina at 573.629.3006 or via email at

More information & Events


HLGU alumni and friends will soon be receiving phone calls from current HLGU students. This year’s annual phonathon will take place February 3-13 with calls being made in the evenings. Recipients of phonathon calls will have the opportunity to share their HLGU experience, and learn how they can make a difference in the lives of current HGLU students.

Gifts made to this year’s phonathon will go directly into HLGU’s Annual Fund. The HLGU Annual Fund complements funding from other sources to provide the difference between what students pay in tuition and what it really cost to educate them. Since our first concern is the student, we want to make education as affordable as possible. Without the HLGU Annual Fund, tuition would increase significantly.

The HLGU Annual Fund makes possible advancements in areas such as general student scholarships, resources to enhance learning, high quality programs and faculty, Christian ministry opportunities, and urgent priorities.

During the phonathon days, current HLGU students will contact more than 3,000 HLGU alumni and friends asking for their support. Recipients of phonathon calls are asked to please remember the person calling them is a student and not a telemarketer and are asked to be ready to share a story or give a kind word of encouragement.

Please contact Lauren Youse ’05, Director of Alumni Services and Development, if you have any questions or concerns at or (573) 629-3126.
