MC Quick Fact

In FY2010, the College raised nearly $1.5 million in new grants — the majority of which funded faculty research and academic programming. To see a list of those foundations supporting MC, visit the College’s web site.

Upcoming

The next "Meet Maryville" for prospective students and their families is set for Jan. 29.

Celebrate the holidays at the Clayton Center! In addition to Handel's "Messiah," the Center will host a ballet, classic movie, and New Year’s Eve dinner and dance! Get your tickets now.


Undergraduate Research

For MC Parents

Students will be able to access their grades for the fall semester through I.Q. Web beginning Dec. 17. Grades will be mailed out to parents on Dec. 17, if students have made that request.

Did your student make the Dean’s List? To make the Dean’s List, a student must be enrolled full-time and earn a 3.60 GPA in all work undertaken with no grade below a “C.” Students who are named to the Dean’s List are notified by congratulatory letters delivered to their campus mailboxes. (Students who graduate in December receive notifications at their permanent addresses.)

Message from Dr. Bogart

The annual phonathon for the Maryville Fund got started last month, and I want to thank those of you who have made a pledge or gift in support of current operations.
