Maryville University is working to expand its international reach, and no one knows that better than the University’s new Director of International Admissions Kirstin Kahaloa, who recently returned from a trip to the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.
She’s part of a new group of admissions officials from eight schools, calling itself the Missouri, Iowa and Minnesota (MIM) group. Kahaloa traveled to the Philippines independently on behalf of Maryville, but visited the countries with the MIM tour, so that overseas schools could learn more about several Midwest institutions at once.
Maryville University has received two recent honors, being recognized as a best value among private universities nationwide, and as a top instiution shaping the future of the St. Louis region.

At 7 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2, the documentary God in the Box will be shown in Maryville Auditorium, followed by a question-and-answer session with the film’s director Nathan Lang. The documentary runs about 80 minutes. The event is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.
