Q: What other school did you transfer from and when?
A: Moberly Area Community College – sophomore year

Q: What made you decide to transfer to Mizzou?
I was already taking classes at Mizzou while at MACC. I enjoyed the professors and the area that I was studying, so when I transferred it was easy and I felt right at home.

Q: Tell me what your transfer experience was like. What or who made the process easier?
Throughout the process of transferring, my academic advisor, Mackenzie Ewing, was a major help. She made sure that I was on the right track, answered all of my questions, and ensured that my credits were successfully transferred. Her guidance and support were what made the process so smooth.

Q: What are you involved in at Mizzou that you couldn’t have done at your previous school?
Some things that I have been involved in while at Mizzou that I couldn’t before was the Mizzou Livestock Judging and the Plant Science Ambassador Team. Both of these organizations have helped me grow as an individual.

Q: What advice would you give other students that are considering transferring to Mizzou?
Reach out to your advisors with any questions or concerns you may have. They are here to help you and they want to see you be successful.
