What brought you to Mizzou?

I chose Mizzou for many reasons. Mizzou was a good distance away from home. Mizzou is also financially possible because they offer great scholarships and they allow out-of-state students an opportunity to get in-state tuition.

Mizzou has a good computer science program and a lot of resources for free tutoring opportunities. Mizzou also offers so many opportunities to get involved and meet people.

Most importantly, Mizzou made me feel the most at home.

What is your favorite spot on campus?

The Student Center has everything a college student could need. If has place to talk, study, take a GOOD nap, eat, shop, and so much more. A college student could honestly live in the student center.

It took me most of my first semester to fully understand the potential of the Student Center, and I don’t want any other students to make the same mistake as me.
