Malone University officials announced today that the Institution is adding esports to its intercollegiate offerings for students.
In the winter of 2020, Juliea Dworning ‘24 decided to attend Malone University to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Pre-Med Biology. After attending a Christian private high school, she was looking for a Christian college that would allow her to serve others and learn more about her purpose.
Julie Goff ‘92 ‘21 returned to Malone 20 years after she completed her bachelor's degree to earn a Master of Arts in Education in School Counseling.
Kelsey Joyce ‘21 knew that, when the Lord wants you to be somewhere, He makes it possible. After a kind family from her church paid for her flight, Joyce found herself en route to Alaska, ready to take on whatever adventure God had planned.
Before ever graduating from high school, Jalen Turner '22 created a nonprofit organization because he wanted to make a difference in his community. Restoration Community Care Center was launched in 2014 to help those in poverty in Stark County and surrounding areas by providing them with everyday necessities.
Malone fulfilled the requirements for a Tree Campus in 2017 with the support of Jason Courter, associate professor of biology and Cynthia Johnson '70. The campus Treewalk project (planned by Johnson and Mike Goff '66) continues Malone's certification and provides an educational experience for the community. Johnson petitioned the Collegium to name the Treewalk in honor of Charles King, professor of botany at Malone College from 1961-1972, who impacted many students to love God’s creation. The Treewalk was dedicated on September 28, 2018.
Christina Oprean, Malone’s head cross country coach/women, has always wanted to host a running event that inspired purpose, empowerment, and meaning.

As is the case with other niche collegiate experiences, students who participate in athletics are well prepared for the professional world because of the competitive edge they possess, their relentless drive and work ethic, their discipline to take direction and learn from others, as well as the overall experience gained as they work together to achieve collective goals.
Libby Doss ‘09, adjunct instructor for visual art at Malone and development director for the Canton Museum of Art (cma), has always found ways to spark happiness through her education and museum work. A Portsmouth, Virginia native, she believes it is her calling to connect people with art and to make art accessible to others, and she is thrilled to continue doing just that in Canton.
