Jared Grimsley


Hello there! My name is Jared Grimsley and I am a Junior Mathematics Major at Missouri State University. I was an Air Force brat growing up and moved around a lot, but graduated high school in Knob Noster, MO. I enjoy playing tennis, dodgeball, being on Facebook, and limbo-ing! On campus, I am involved in many things.

  • This is my second year as a Resident Assistant in Hammons House. I absolutely love it.
  • I am involved with a Social Greek Fraternity. Joining was one of the best decisions I ever made.
  • I went through the Emerging Leaders program. I encourage everybody to do so.
  • I was a SOAR Leader this past summer.
  • This is my second year as a Peer Leader and I am very much looking forward to this semester.

When I was a freshmen, I wasn't involved in anything. It was a miserable semester for me, I didn't meet many new people, and I don't want anybody else to have to go through what I went through. If I had to give you one piece of advice, it would be to get involved with at least one student organizations. Trust me. It will make your life and your experience here so much better.

Be proud to call this place your new home. When people say that college is the best four years of your life, they aren't lying. Make the most of it... Welcome to Missouri State!
