MC's Bicentennial is Here!
Bicentennial banners on Pearsons Hall

Our Bicentennial year has arrived! During this celebratory year, we would like to use this milestone to increase our region’s familiarity with – and appreciation for – Maryville College’s history and mission, as well as its current programs and initiatives. We hope you will not only learn more about the ways in which Maryville College has grown and advanced over the last 200 years, but also how MC has stayed true to some very timeless values.

Please join us for the many events planned in 2019 – there’s truly something for everyone! The first Bicentennial events of 2019 include a Bicentennial Concert on Jan. 24 and performances of “Voices of the Valley” on Feb. 2. Be sure to check the Bicentennial section of the website often throughout the year and follow the Bicentennial on Facebook!
