Josie Orf is a pre-radiography major from Wichita, Kansas. She is also a student in the Mizzou Honors College and plans to continue studying radiography in graduate school.
“If you ever have any questions, do not be afraid to call or email someone,” she says. “It seems scary at first, but everyone here at Mizzou loves to answer any questions you may have. All of us had a million questions starting out so we will gladly help with anything that will make your transition to college life easier!”
In addition to serving on the School of Health Professions Student Ambassador Leadership Team, Josie is an active volunteer for the annual School of Health Professions Service Days. In her free time Josie enjoys grabbing coffee with her friends and trying local restaurants around Columbia.
What made you choose Mizzou?
I had a difficult time finding a college that felt right, but the minute I stepped on campus Mizzou felt like my home away from home and I knew this was where I was meant to be.
What should make students choose Mizzou?
Mizzou is one of the most welcoming and friendly communities you will ever experience. I cannot tell you how many times I have gotten into conversations with people I have never met before just because we were standing in line somewhere.
How did you choose your major?
When I started college I wanted to major in something that let me work in healthcare but specifically radiology or orthopedics. I felt like radiography was a good blend of the two and I have loved it ever since!
What has been your favorite Mizzou memory?
Tiger Walk because it was my initiation into Mizzou!
If you could have dinner with one famous Mizzou graduate, who would it be and why?
Brad Pitt(well, almost a graduate)because I think a lot of his movies from the 90s are classic films and it would be fun to meet the guy who starred in them.
