What brought you to Mizzou?

The gorgeous campus, the huge school spirit, the location, and all the people I’d have the opportunity to meet. There are so many doors I’ve had the opportunity to walk through here.

What is your favorite spot on campus?

Either Memorial Union or Francis Quad. I love the architecture of Memorial Union, and it’s definitely my favorite building on campus. However, Francis Quad and the Columns are just so iconic and hanging out there, whether it’s to study, eat lunch, or throw a disc, really feels like home.
