  • My favorite Mizzou events: International Welcome Party, Party Around the World, and Homecoming.
  • Why I chose Mizzou: I saw and heard good, interesting things about Mizzou such as well-organized career fairs with well-known companies, the variety of research activities that I can be involved in, and events held by colleges or organizations for students to enjoy. All of this encouraged me to choose Mizzou and build the beginning of my educational career here.
  • My advice for fellow international students: Try as many things as you can while you are studying at Mizzou: join the clubs and organizations, attend conferences or guest speaker sessions, and school events. Also, do not hesitate to use office hours and tutoring sessions that the university or academic departments offer which will help you catch up or get used to the atmosphere of school and settle down easily.
  • Student organizations I belong to: I am currently active in the Korean Student Association, Mizzou Engineering Student Council, and Mizzou Fencing Club. As an active member of each organization and club, I can meet new people and learn things that are related to my major or non-major stuff. I can also try a variety of unique activities such as doing fencing, representing my country to other students and introducing my country when I attend professional conferences.
