How to tie a bow tie

Tigers try out the chancellor’s style.

As we prepare to dress up for for commencement ceremonies and other fancy end-of-the-semester events, Mizzou students, faculty and staff are stepping up Tigers' style and mastering the fine art of tying a bow tie — with varying degrees of success (and authenticity; we're on to you, Truman). Join us. Grab a bow tie. We'll show you what to do.
