Connect with Deandre
I joined the admissions team in May of 2016 after earning a bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies with a minor in Management. I'm working towards a Master’s degree in Professional Studies with an emphasis in Management and Leadership.
Favorite thing about Missouri State University
I love the relationships that you make with people from faculty and staff to the students, Missouri State University provides a family away from home.
Favorite thing to do on weekends
On weekends I love to work out and play basketball at the Foster Recreation Center on campus. I also like to read, write, and to hang out with friends.
Favorite place to eat in Springfield
Texas Roadhouse is great for a fair price and I would highly recommend traveling to Lamberts for the flying rolls!
Something you wish you had known before going to college
Scholarships! There is nothing greater than being rewarded for the hard work that you do and scholarships are the epitome of that statement. Doing well in high school provides you an opportunity to get some if not all of your college paid for. Please take advantage of scholarship and grant opportunities. Your future self will thank you in the long run!
