Professional Experience

My favorite part about being a Bearcat is...

The community I get from going to school here. There are so many people that have opened up to me in conversation because we have Northwest Missouri State University in common in some way.

Advice for Students

Get as many experiences in during college as you can, this time won’t last forever!

The more you learn about yourself, the easier it will be to figure out a path after college that works for you.

Start building a master document of all your clubs, activities, jobs, and internships now so when you make your resume later it isn’t as intimidating.
