Missouri State University

Melissa Rodriquez-Aviles


My name is Melissa Rodriguez-Aviles (and no, I’m not married which you might have assumed because of the hyphenated name). I currently live in Springfield, MO, and as for my plans for the future, they’re up in the air right now.

The organizations I’m involved in right now are as follows:

SIFE (Students in Free Enterprise), President and Project Leader
Shaolin Kung Fu Club, Vice President
Beta Gamma Sigma, Member
NSCS (National Society of Collegiate Scholars), Member
Honors College, Member
Peer Leader Program

If I’m not in class or “studying” I’m usually doing something involving SIFE. However, should I ever get free time, my hobbies include reading, writing, knitting, playing video games, practicing my Kung Fu, watching movies, and attempting to keep my vegetable plants alive. I’m glad to be a Peer Leader this year (go Seniors!), and I hope that I can make your first year here at Missouri State University an enjoyable one. See you in class!
