Tiera Montgomery, a Kansas City native, made the decision to come to Mizzou because of its distinguished journalism curriculum and hands-on teaching, known as the Missouri Method. Montgomery appreciates the Missouri Method and believes that learning by doing is much more valuable than solely learning from a textbook. This hands-on experience landed her an internship with VML, a marketing agency based in Kansas City, Missouri.
Although she is entering her senior year and has learned a lot about her field, Montgomery believes she is at Mizzou to serve a greater purpose outside of the classroom. Her job as an on-campus front desk attendant allows her to interact with many potential Tigers.
“Working at Mizzou allows me to fulfill a meaningful purpose here on campus while enhancing my own college experience,” Montgomery said. “I have the opportunity to meet and talk with new people every day, learning the many different reasons students want to come to Mizzou and how I can help make their experience better.”
Montgomery’s advice to younger students is to get involved. She says with all of the clubs, organizations and other activities that Mizzou has to offer, getting involved is easy to do and has numerous benefits from exploring your passion to networking.
