Mount Vernon Nazarene University: Life Changing

Lifestyle Guidelines

We don't want to squelch your individuality or right to personal expression, but...

MVNU also has standards for how you look. Most of them simply make sense -- that you are clean and look presentable to the rest of the community. We don't want to squelch individuality or right to personal expression. However, this expression should be within reason. For example, for modesty's sake, we require all shorts (allowed after 4:30 p.m. in most University areas) and skirts to be modest and no more than two inches above the knee.  Full dress code requirements can be found at, Student Life Handbook.

Attendance at Chapel is a requirement.

Alumni tell us that they look back on Chapel as the best time of the campus day. Many of us regard Chapel as a welcome oasis in the midst of a busy day. In most weeks, three sessions per week are set aside for Chapel and each student is required to attend. We don't consider Chapel a substitute for church attendance or personal devotions. It's a special feature of a Christian University education.
