My first year a Mizzou was a little interesting coming from a small area. The campus location and atmosphere was good, but the amount of people from time to time was a little overwhelming. The hardest part was being a transfer student coming in January. By this time most students have already settled in with other students they connect to and a new person is new and awkward. It is definitely a school I am going to have to get used to and become more fluent with. I imagine that I will get used to the school as time goes on and the connections made will be long term.
