Where you belong: Mizzou Engineering ambassadors encourage others to choose Mizzou

Mizzou Engineering ambassadors are students who have loved their time at Mizzou so much that they choose to give back by representing the College. Each week, they lead tours of Lafferre Hall for future Tigers and their families. And throughout the semester they’ll take time on the weekends to speak with students and their families at Meet Mizzou Days or Mizzou Engineering events.
