    “I often found myself inspired by my lectures. Never had I been granted such academic freedom. I could largely study what I wanted, and I was in control over my success or failure. This control felt unnatural in the best way possible.”

    “The [MU Community Engagement Project] class helped me see and understand the stuggles of so many people in my community and challenged me to use my skills and resources to make a difference where I could. This course prompted me to begin seriously considering not only what I wanted to major in, but what I wanted to dedicate my life to.”

    “”I truly do believe in Einstein’s wise words, “Learning is experience, everything else is just information.” Personally, I think experience is the best way to learn. The experiences I had in Honduras taught me things that could not have been learned in a classroom…Without the University of Missouri-Columbia having the organization, Mizzou Global Brigades, I would have never found my new passion and desired career path.”

    “Reading Bryan’ Stevenson’s novel, “Just Mercy” here at Mizou has changed my life…I am thankful that through the Mizzou community I found hope. I may still be fearful of the unknown experiences I will find, but from Stevenson I have learned that fear makes the greatest change.”
