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.

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.
