Auxiliary promotes "Befriend a Student" program

Auxiliary Board 2013
2013 Auxiliary Board members


The MLC Ladies' Auxiliary would like to assist congregations in finding one (or more) students who would appreciate some encouraging words during their time at MLC. The Auxiliary has named this the "Befriend an MLC Student" program.  When a congregation expresses an interest, Auxiliary representatives will send the congregation a photo, mailing address, e-mail address, and birth date of the selected MLC student(s).  The Ladies' Auxiliary will also send along suggestions of encouragement that other congregations have used in the past. The goal of the program is to set up a "friend" for as many MLC students as possible. To participate, email us at and we will send you the name of an MLC student you can encourage.

Auxiliary members greet new students and familiesHospitality Tent


The MLC Hospitality Tent served a valuable function as the Auxiliary greeted families to the campus during Freshman Orientation. On August 22-23, Auxiliary members helped families navigate the campus, shared tips for new college parents, and introduced parents to the work of the Auxiliary. The "Befriend an MLC Student" program also generated a lot of excitement with parents as they learned how the Ladies' Auxiliary works hard to provide extra support for their college students.
