Kayla Burrell graduated from the University of Missouri last May with thousands of other students, but unlike the vast majority of her classmates, she walked across the commencement stage as a published author. Burrell’s book, "The College Experience: A Message to the Millennials," is based on her time spent at Mizzou. In it she offers advice and encouragement about the college experience.
In her first semester at Mizzou, Lexi, a psychology major; was making friends; joining a sorority; and was loving her first year of college. However, just a few weeks in, Lexi found herself sitting in her dorm room, more than 800 miles from home, watching stories about Hurricane Harvey and its impact on her hometown of Houston. Thanks to MU Residential Life, Lexi was reunited with her parents for Family Weekend, giving the family some much needed time together.
It was announced today that Jason Stockley, a former St. Louis police officer, was found not guilty of first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the shooting death of Anthony Lamar Smith. Some in our university campus communities have been following this trial closely and may have deep feelings and strong opinions about the verdict. The university supports every individual’s right to express personal opinions and feelings in a peaceful manner. Our values of Respect, Responsibility, Discovery and Excellence guide all of us, and we remain committed to free expression, but that expression must be shared in a peaceful manner. It is important for all members of our community to know they are respected, valued, safe and a vital part of creating a positive culture on our campus. We are aware that conversations are being planned around campus. We will be sure to let you know as the details are finalized so that we can come together as a community to engage in meaningful dialogue. http://munews.missouri.edu/news-releases/2017/0915-statement-14/

Walta Abraham has come a long way from her freshman year. When she started at Mizzou, she was unsure of what her major would be and where her career was headed. “Mizzou was exactly what I needed in order to take the next step in my growth toward adulthood,” said Abraham, who is now a senior studying civil engineering. “What made this even better was that everyone had the common goal of furthering their education and bettering themselves.” #MizzouMade Mizzou Engineering Mizzou NSBE | National Society of Black Engineers
