"The events of 2007 and 2017 are important reminders that Bluffton’s mission and values
endure during times of tragedy and tribulation and times of achievement and celebration.
As members of the Bluffton University community we continue moving forward with energy,
hope and faith, believing that the contributions we offer help create a better world."
