Greetings! My name is Kendra Thomas and I am currently a 3L law student here at the University of Missouri. Hailing all the way from sunny south Florida, I attended the University of Florida as a telecommunication major for my undergraduate study. I couldn't wait to get involved here at Mizzou and continue reaching out to individuals, because I'm passionate about creating the same opportunities for others that have been created for me!
As one of the best law schools in the country, Mizzou originally attracted me with its plethora of dual-degree options, including those in journalism and public affairs. I've always been interested in being a liaison between the community and institutions with limited access, and thus far, I've been extremely pleased with my decision to attend MU. The administration does its absolute best to foster diversity and create options for each student on and off campus; and, the faculty challenges us to maintain a standard of excellence in our studies, which has been a huge factor in my success!
I'd encourage anyone to feel free to contact me or another ambassador about our personal experiences here. Not only can I guarantee that we're being honest about our great experiences at Mizzou, but it's also information you won't find on the statistics sheets you're sure to sift through when making your final decision on a law school. Plus, with a state-of-the-art recreation center, awesome athletic programs, and a newly renovated student union, you'll get the balanced experience you need without worrying about burning yourself out!
If you're coming from out of state-take it from me-moving across-country to a new location can be a little intimidating at first, but the transition has been smooth and the payoff substantial! There is a sense of unrivaled camaraderie here and genuine concern for the success of each and every student, so immediately felt right at home, and you will, too! If there's any more information you're still seeking, send me an e-mail or stop me in the hall. I'd be happy to speak with you!
