My favorite spot on campus:

Either what I call the “lily pad pond” or the upstairs couches at the student center. The lily pad pond on the east side of campus is always just relaxing and a good place to think and walk around, especially during the sunset hours. Also nothing beats getting Sunshine Sushi and sitting with a friend on the couch in the student center; that couch has seen my best and worst.

My favorite Mizzou tradition:

Homecoming; it was so much fun to get to work on Homecoming boards and seeing fraternities and sororities pulling an all-nighter the night before and competing. There was nothing cooler than seeing what felt like all of Columbia walking around the Greek houses and watching the skits and observing Homecoming boards.

One of my favorite Mizzou memories:

The first football game of the 2022-23 season; the sky was a beautiful sunset and Mizzou was winning. The whole environment was amazing, students cheering and everyone excited and all the nervousness of a new school left, and I knew that this was going to be a great school year and this was the school for me.
