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 missions trips include students, faculty, and staff attending Crossover Baltimore 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.

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 2-13 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 HLGU 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 costs 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.
