My favorite Mizzou tradition:

The Homecoming Parade! There’s something so special about seeing not just the entire Mizzou community, but also the city of Columbia, converge to celebrate our school. I’m always amazed by how creative and professional-looking the floats are, and it was an absolute blast to have the chance to walk in it for the first time this past year.

What I’m most excited for at Summer Welcome:

I’m excited to meet the incoming freshmen! I remember going to Summer Welcome and it completely easing my nerves about going to college and meeting new people/living in a new place. My Summer Welcome leaders helped to make me feel so confident about my new phase of life, so I absolutely love the idea of getting to pay it forward.
