From the VP's desk:

"Many of us recognize the magic of Mars Hill. For some it is in the supernatural events which led to our attending MHU. For others, it is in the acknowledgement that Mars Hill’s place in higher education is divinely inspired. For still others, it is in the majesty of our place, and the surreal manner in which the clouds lay on our dear Blue Ridge Mountains.

For me, the magic of Mars Hill is in its people. I have experienced firsthand the support and care of faculty and staff when serious health issues entered my life. I have enjoyed meeting our volunteer leaders, learning of their personal and professional accomplishments, and understanding better their passion for the university. I have marveled at the character and commitment of our alumni.

A university that stands the test of time requires good people. Mars Hill is such a place. It is a community of good people. I encourage you to partner with us as together we keep the magic that is Mars Hill University alive."
