Chelsea Spence, senior in political science, has known Mizzou is a special place ever since she first stepped foot in Memorial Stadium as a kid. Growing up in St. Louis, she’s been cheering for the Tigers all her life.
“I chose MU because I’ve always felt at home here,” Spence said, “I would absolutely choose Mizzou again. I have received so many amazing opportunities through this university. Mizzou has taught me more than what could ever be learned in a classroom alone.”
Despite having more than 30,000 students, Mizzou still feels like a small school to Spence. The unique combination of tradition, school spirit and community is what has helped her grow into the leader she is today.
