Our Location

MidAmerica Nazarene University (MNU) has been the home of MWROC since our inception in 2010.  Read on for info about the incredible facilities at MNU, the campus map, and driving directions.

MidAmerica Nazarene University (MNU)

MNU is located in Olathe, Kansas, a suburban community of more than 120,000, located just 20 minutes from the heart of Kansas City. This ideal location offers the best of country and cosmopolitan culture.

While people are at the heart of the MNU Experience, our beautiful campus goes a long way toward making students feel at home. MidAmerica’s campus occupies 105 acres of classic colonial-style buildings, athletic and recreational facilities, and plenty of green space to enjoy.

OLATHE: The City MidAmerica Calls Home
MidAmerica Nazarene University is located in Olathe, Kansas, a residential community of 114,000 people (including nearly 2,500 MNU alumni!), just 20 minutes from the heart of Kansas City with all of the cultural advantages of a major metropolitan area. Olathe is the second largest among the 21 communities in prosperous Johnson County, and the fifth largest city in the state.

Accommodations

MNU is a small college campus that has tremendous security for their dormitories.  All dormitories are highly secure and can only be entered with a pass key card, given to each camper as they arrive.  Each individual dorm room can be locked with a separate key.  An added bonus is that MNU is not located in a big city.  It is a very quiet oasis, with the exception of our incredible music the week that we arrive.  The dorms, cafeteria and music building are all located in a perfect triangle.  Walking from the dorm to the music building is about 50 yards.  The same is true for the cafeteria.

There is a boys dorm, a girls dorm, and separate floors reserved for our adult campers and families.  Campers may NOT visit the opposite sex dormitory.  Roommates are chosen by same sex and same age, as much as possible.  A security guard is on site 24 hours a day.

Counselors stay in the hall with students aged 17 and under, so there is always an adult presence.  MNU and MWROC have a strict “no drugs, alcohol, or tobacco” policy and we encourage a healthy work ethic and smart living.  MWROC strictly upholds the rules of MNU, as our host campus.

Bell Cultural Events Center – MWROC’s performance facility

The 40,000 square foot Bell Cultural Events Center is an acoustically-engineered masterpiece. The 541-seat Mabee Performing Arts Hall boasts the very best in sound environment, and multi-media presentations. The building also has practice rooms and individual instruction areas in support of the high level of academic standards and has the most up-to-date technology for teaching, recording, and playback for students and teachers to use in classrooms, private lessons, rehearsals, and performances.
