Jeremiah Vick comes from a family of Tigers. His mother has been working at the university for the past 22 years. Vick made the decision to attend Mizzou after the architecture program caught his eye when he was 14.
Now, Vick is in his senior year as an architectural studies student in the MU College of Human and Environmental Sciences.
“I’ve had amazing opportunities thanks to Mizzou, including my job with campus facilities where I am working with architects to further my education in the field,” Vick said. “Another activity that’s helped me is joining the Deaton Scholars Program, a program that finds solutions for humanitarian issues around the world.”
The Deaton Scholars Program is a peer-mentorship initiative designed to foster public service leadership in areas such as international development, global food security, elimination of extreme poverty and non-profit management. Besides his classes, being a part of the Deaton Scholars Program has been Vick’s favorite part of college. It’s given him the chance to connect with other students who share his passion for service.
“My advice for prospective students would be to follow your passion and be determined to achieve your goal,” Vick said. “Determination and passion are the keys to success at Mizzou and any other college.”
