Hello Future GEP101 Students! My name is Shandon King. I am a first year Peer Leader here at MSU. I am a Junior and Family and Consumer Science Education major. I am originally from Harrison, Arkansas; however, over the summer I moved to Branson, Missouri. But Missouri State is my true home. I love it here and I hope you feel the same way!
A few of my interest include: photography, music and travel. My favorite places are New Orleans and New York City. I would love to travel to Finland one day. I love meeting new people. I waitress at Ruby Tuesday in Branson. This semester I hope to meet more incredible people and be more active in the organizations here at Missouri State.
My advice to incoming students at Missouri State is to not wish time away. It seems like a long time waiting for that diploma; but, take it one day at a time. Enjoy each day and each person you meet. There will be good times and bad times. There will be triumphs and there will be mistakes. Just be yourself and accept others as themselves.
