Steven Chaffin, Graduate Student Pursuing Master's of Public Affairs

Graduate student Steven Chaffin had no idea what he wanted to do with his life when he was applying for colleges. He chose Mizzou because it seemed like the perfect place to figure it out.

“I may not have come to Mizzou with the clearest of intentions, but without a doubt I would choose Mizzou again,” Chaffin said. “All the best opportunities I’ve had in my life, I’ve had here.”

A recent Mizzou graduate, Chaffin is continuing his education by pursuing a master’s of public affairs from the Harry S. Truman School of Public Affairs in the College of Arts and Science. His classes have taught him a lot, but he’s learned the most from the organizations he’s been involved in and the experiences he’s had.
