What is your best advice for incoming Mizzou CHS students?
Definitely to get involved! Mizzou is a large school, but by getting involved you can make it feel much smaller and more like a tight-knit community.

Students should choose Mizzou because it offers incredible academic opportunities while providing a fun college town experience.

My favorite Mizzou memory is rushing the field after the football game where we beat K-State off a record-breaking field goal.
What is your favorite coffee spot in Columbia?
