May 2019 was a great time to be a Redbird. This month, we saw the spring semester end and bid our Redbirds farewell for the summer. Before we completely closed the book on the school year, we celebrated the hard work and drive of the Class of 2019 during our commencement ceremonies. May also saw our Redbird student-athletes excel on the field and in the classroom. They set a department GPA record and were crowned the Missouri Valley Conference All-Sports Champions! Additionally, our baseball team took a share of the MVC Championship and made an appearance in the NCAA tournament. Celebrate these moments and more with our monthly Redbird Roundup.
