Miss ETBU is one of ETBU’s oldest and most cherished traditions. Miss ETBU represents the University both on campus and in the community, and is selected by a panel of judges based on her Christian character, poise, and scholarship.  We have restructured the process this year to make it accessible for more ETBU ladies to participate, including those who work in the evenings as well as our student athletes. 

Miss ETBU receives a generous academic scholarship as well as the opportunity to represent the University throughout the community and region.
