What brought you to Mizzou?

For the longest time, I thought I would never go to Mizzou. Being from St. Louis, I was determined to go out of state. Honestly, I ended up going to Mizzou because as a student who is paying for college herself, it made the most financial sense.

It wasn’t until I came here that I really fell in love with Mizzou’s welcoming community and all of its incredible opportunities. Now, I absolutely love Mizzou—so much that I’m staying here all summer!

What is your favorite spot on campus? Why?

This sounds a little strange, but I have a favorite Column. If you’re facing Jesse, it’s the fourth from the left. My roommate and I always go there on nice days and eat Chipotle or go there late at night and talk about life. It’s by FAR the best Column.
