Mid-Atlantic Foundation Banquet

October 10, 2013

Mid-Atlantic Foundation Banquet October 17, 2013, the Mid-Atlantic Foundation will hold its annual banquet on campus.  The event brings donors to campus who have designated scholarship funds inside the Mid-Atlantic Foundation.  Donors will be able to meet Mid-Atlantic Christian University (MACU) students who received scholarship awards this academic year.  This is a wonderful event that allows the students to meet and thank the donors in person in a casual atmosphere.  Donors enjoy meeting these students and learning about what they are planning to do with the education they receive at MACU.  Many of the Foundation donors are alumni of MACU and enjoy telling the current students about what MACU was like "back in the day."     Sandra Perkins, Director of the Foundation, selected the first floor Harold C. Turner lobby for the venue this year.  The riverfront lobby offers beautiful views and a cozy atmosphere. Thompson Hospitality will sponsor the dinner meal. There will be a brief program which will include presentations from students and donors.  Joanne Norris and Emmett Murphy will speak on behalf of Foundation donors. Participants will also hear from current MACU students, Amy Isler and Aaron Stokes.     Mrs. Joanne Norris and her husband, Jerry,...

Mid-Atlantic Christian University jumps in Washington Monthly top college rankings

September 17, 2013

  Mid-Atlantic Christian University jumps in Washington Monthly top college rankings  Elizabeth City, NC – September 13, 2013.  Mid-Atlantic Christian University has been ranked 40th in the Washington Monthly’s list of college rankings, up from last year’s ranking of 52nd. The Washington Monthly rankings are based on three factors. The first is social mobility, which gives colleges credit for enrolling many low-income students and helping them earn degrees. The second recognizes research production, particularly at schools whose undergraduates go on to earn PhDs. The third values a college’s commitment to service. The more expensive college becomes, the more students are encouraged to see higher education as a mere return on investment. The students in the “best colleges,” according to this ranking, are taught by example and design to look beyond themselves and give back. Mid-Atlantic is pleased to provide a high-quality Christian-based education at an affordable price. The college has made a strong effort to make classes available to all through scholarships and grants to ease the financial burden on students. According to Dr. Clay Perkins, “The school has always been a place for first generation and low-income college students to achieve their dream of a...
