Tigers You’ll Meet 🐯
During your college years at Mizzou, you’ll create unforgettable memories and form lifelong friendships with people — each with different perspectives and from a variety of backgrounds. Mizzou faculty mentors and staff will be here to guide you every step of the way. And after you graduate, you’ll tap into a network of more than 300,000 Mizzou alumni.
Mizzou welcomed its most diverse first-year class in the university’s history in 2015. We have more international students and more students from underrepresented groups than ever before. That’s key, because we believe living and interacting with people from different walks of life — who might occasionally challenge your perspective or change your mind — is crucial to your education.
Learn From the Best
Every Mizzou graduate remembers a professor — or two, or three, or more — who inspired them, illuminated their studies and forever changed their life. Our nationally prominent faculty bring innovation to the classroom, publish more than 1,600 books and scholarly articles each year, and attract multi-million-dollar research grants.
A lot of universities brag on their famous alumni, and we have those, too — singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow, BS Ed ’84; actor Jon Hamm, BA ’93; actor Brad Pitt, Jour ’86; and baseball star Max Scherzer, Bus ’06, to name a few. More important are the alumni connections you’ll make in everyday life. Mizzou’s 300,000 alumni reside on every continent, lead Fortune 500 companies, correspond at the White House, explore the solar system and perform classical piano across Europe.
