A pre-veterinary student and California, Mo. native, Libby chose Mizzou because it offers incredible programs in her field of interest and she wanted to be a part of the university’s deep traditions.

“Mizzou has shaped me into who I am,” Martin said. “It is incredible how I have grown as a person and as a professional in the four years that I have been here. Mizzou has provided me with a hands-on education, mentors and has expanded my network.”

Martin’s favorite Mizzou memory is participating in Tap Day and studying abroad with other MU students and faculty to both China and Australia.

Her advice to prospective students is to make a point to talk to a current student. She says that students have the best perspective of college life and can be a huge resource for any student who is deciding on where to go to college. Once here, she says students should get involved in a diverse array of student opportunities and take advantage of the diverse offerings on campus.
