Find Your Arch

Beavers may be spread out far and wide, but the comforting sight of an arch is always nearby.  BVU students, alumni, and families have found arches in their day-to-day lives.

Resources and Information

Buena Vista University App

The Buena Vista University app serves as one convenient location for our students, faculty and staff, families and guests, and alumni to access information and resources. It serves as another way to stay connected with BVU!

Helping Beavers in Need

Student Emergency Fund

Generous contributions from alumni, parents, and friends of Buena Vista University allow us to provide financial support to students for supplies, emergencies, special programs, test prep, unforeseen travel, and unanticipated events. These funds do not have to be repaid, but the University’s hope is that one day—when a beneficiary of this support is in a position to pay this forward—they will.
