What made you choose Mizzou?

I chose Mizzou because it wasn’t too far from home and a decent distance away from where I could experience life on my own.

What has been your favorite Mizzou memory?

My favorite Mizzou memory was getting woken up at 6 a.m. for AASB reveal.

If you could have dinner with one famous Mizzou alum, who would it be and why?

I would pick Tyron Woodley so I could ask him about his transition from wrestling to mixed martial arts.

What should make students choose Mizzou?

Mizzou really has something for everyone no matter who you are. Mizzou will help you find your people. It is a place everyone will feel comfortable.
