STUDENT RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM

Students excel most when they study what they are most interested in. To promote the incredible possibilities of each student, Malone hosts the Student Research Symposium, a forum in which undergraduates have the opportunity to present their proudest independent work. Projects from nearly every discipline are put on display, flooding the forum space with new scientific findings and entertaining fine arts performances alike. Because the faculty love the Symposium just as much as students, they are readily available to aid and mentor their curious pupils throughout their research.

GEN 100: THE COLLEGE EXPERIENCE

Every first-year student at Malone is swiftly taken into the community with the help of Gen 100, a common learning course that aids in the transition from high school to college. Gen 100: The College Experience begins the first day of Orientation when students are introduced to their fellow classmates who will take the same course. Students quickly learn about Malone’s culture as well as the general strategies they should have in order to become successful, college-level learners.

SPIRITUAL FORMATION OPPORTUNITIES

Spiritual Formation Opportunities (SFOs) ensure that Malone students grow in their continual journeys in service to God. Straying from the traditional chapel requirement at most Christian universities, Malone requires its students to attend at least twenty of the three hundred SFOs hosted on campus. Each SFO is a unique experience that approaches spiritual development with a fresh perspective. Students can choose to attend whichever SFOs interest them most, allowing them to growth in faith along the path that bests suits them. They differ in size, structure, and topic, exploring such activities as small Bible groups, large worship events, and guest lectures from wise Christian leaders.

MALONE TRADITION

A highly unique, much-anticipated Malone tradition is the annual Davenport Derby. This hilariously fun event kicks off each fall semester with sofa races down the street. Students get together in groups, dress up in costumes, and charge decorated couches on wheels in a race to win the Golden Couch Award. The entire student body is always thrilled to gather and cheer on their peers, reuniting with old friends and making new ones in the riotous community gathering.

Service-Learning

Serving others is an integral part of Christian faith, and Malone wants to ensure that its students are addressing the world’s needs beyond their usual reach. A large number of international partners host Malone service groups all around the world, bringing students directly in contact with those who need help, including refugees, impoverished households, and exploited workers.

CENTER FOR STUDENT SUCCESS

Academic advising is all inclusive at Malone University. The Center helps students find the appropriate core courses that both fulfill their general education requirements and bolster the knowledge they need for their individual majors. Undeclared students receive helpful guidance as well, as their faculty advisors brainstorm with them to find what majors best align with their interests and strengths.
