What is your favorite Mizzou memory?

Early on in my freshman year, a group of my friends got together and went to the Columns late at night and we just talked about life. Who we were before Mizzou and who we hope to be when we leave. It was really special.

Who would you say is/are your role model(s)? Why?

Scooby Dooby Doo!! He is so free. He’s never afraid to be who he really is. Whether he’s fearful, or joyful, or…hungry! Scooby Doo has been my hero since I was four years old and that hasn’t changed.

What is your favorite spot on campus? Why?

Mark Twain Ballroom because there is plenty of space for me to dance in.

How do you make Mizzou your home?

Make Mizzou small. If you focus on the size of campus or how many students there are enrolled here, you’ll probably be overwhelmed. Instead focus on the students you do know and the areas you are in most of the time. Get to know your fellow students in your ResHall and you’ll begin to recognize them and say hi to them on your way to and from classes. It really helps to shrink campus!

What is your favorite dining hall and why?

Rollins is my favorite dining hall because they have the best pizza and I think I could eat it everyday (and I practically did sophomore year). And there is also Late Night @ Rollins and you can’t go wrong with a vanilla milkshake… and a pizza.
