Hi! My name is Kristen Stout and I am a junior Socio-Political Communication major here at Missouri State. I am originally from Plano, Texas and coming here was a bit of a shock. I can totally understand what it’s like to start out in a new place! Here at Missouri State I am on the traveling debate team and a member of the College of Arts and Letters Dean’s Advisory Council. I’m sure you can tell by now that I love to talk.
My one piece of advice is to find something on campus you like and go for it! College is all about new experiences and trying new things. Don’t be afraid to try out lots of different clubs, activities, and even classes because this is the only time you will have the opportunity to be around so many awesome people and cool ideas.
