Commencement Dinner & Concert Invitation

Alumni and friends are invited to the annual commencement dinner gathering on Friday, May 16. Your RSVP is free and saves your seat. Pay just $5 upon arrival to enjoy a delicious cafeteria meal. You'll also have time to visit with old friends, meet other alumni, and hear presentations on programs and progress from the MLC president and professors. Click here to register or learn more about the event. You may also register by calling the alumni office at 507-354-8221 x 387. The event lets out in plenty of time to attend the 7:30 concert. This year's concert is secular and will take place in the auditorium. The commencement and call services will take place in the gymnasium the following day at 10am and 2pm. 

Volunteers Needed


MLC and WELS Kingdom Workers are partnering to complete a chapel basement project for the summer of 2014. The Chapel of the Christ's basement has remained entirely unfinished since its opening in 2010. Lord willing, an elevator will soon be installed and a "fellowship hall" space for large-group gatherings will be built below the narthex. This is where we need your help! We need 8-10 volunteers/week over the six week construction period (June 9-July 18). If your heart enjoys giving with your hands, please click here to learn more and let us know how and when you may be able to help. 

If You Build It


MLC's baseball team has been playing home games off campus for 10 years. However, for the past five years, a new field adjacent to the soccer pitch has been developing nicely thanks to the efforts of the grounds crew and baseball team. The grass has matured. The dugouts and press box are built. Now we just need to purchase bleachers and we can begin play at our new on-campus field in the spring of 2015. Please consider contributing toward this last phase of the project by clicking here.

Wind Symphony in Wisconsin 


The MLC Wind Symphony's spring tour (May 18-23) will take them to churches, high schools, and elementary schools in Duluth MN and throughout Wisconsin. Click here to view the schedule and plan to attend a concert near you. An on-campus concert will be performed in the auditorium on Saturday, April 12, at 7:30 pm and will be broadcast live on MLC-TV. You can also travel with the group virtually by following daily posts (including video recordings of selected songs) on the MLC Facebook page.

Together Again
Several groups of graduates will be heading up the hill in the next few months to reunite and relive fond memories with friends. Most are celebrating an anniversary of their graduation. Others, such as DMLC/MLC softball players past and present, will gather to celebrate a retirement of a beloved coach. Whatever the reason, we encourage you to get a group together and come visit us at your alma mater. Click here to see a list of classes reuniting in the next few month or contact the alumni office for assistance in getting your gathering going.
