Hello! My name is Lauren Aiello and I’m from Jefferson City, Missouri. I am a sophomore at Missouri State, majoring in Elementary Education with a possible emphasis in Reading Education. I love to volunteer at animal shelters and participate in mission trips with my church back home. This is my first year as a peer leader and I am so excited to get started!
Missouri State is a great school and offers so many opportunities. If I could give one piece of advice to freshman, it would be to get involved on campus. It’s a great way to make friends and make Missouri State and Springfield feel more like home. I hope you love it here and have a great first year!
