ThePerk: the event is arguably MBU’s most original tradition. In 1996, Resident Life combined two MBU staples, coffee and music, into one event with hopes of creating a tradition. After years of growth, the event later moved to various venues throughout campus before finding its home in the Muncy Gymnasium. The annual homecoming event features a memento as recognizable as the event itself: the annual Perk coffee mug. Each year’s cup is different, from tall & skinny to short & round, or even glow-in-the-dark.
