For junior Kevin Horner, an undergraduate education at Mizzou is the first step toward a career in medicine. While he plans a course schedule that will best prepare him for medical school, he also finds time for volunteering with Ronald McDonald House and helping international students develop their English skills.

“I came to campus my freshman year eager to be a Tiger and make the most of everything Mizzou has to offer.”
