Kyndall Evans, from St. Louis, is a Health Science major with an emphasis in health and wellness. After graduation, Kyndall looks forward to obtaining her doctorate in occupational therapy.
One piece of advice Kyndall would give to incoming students is to get involved right away.
“College is a great place to step out of your comfort zone and explore new things,” she says. “Mizzou has a wide variety of organizations that make it hard for you not to try them all. Getting involved allows you to meet new people and make Mizzou feel like home.”
In addition to being a student ambassador, Kyndall enjoys volunteering with the Adaptive Swim Program and Center Stage Mizzou. She also is involved with the student religious organization, Veritas, and enjoys spending time with friends and family.
How did you choose your major?
I chose Occupational Therapy because I enjoy working with people and I want to be able to make a difference in someone’s life. I am looking forward to being able to help people accomplish their goals and be someone they can count on.
What should make students choose Mizzou?
Mizzou has something for everyone. There are so many ways to get involved and pursue your passions whether that be through your major, an organization, or both!
If you could give one piece of advice to incoming freshmen, what would it be?
Don’t be too hard on yourself. College is a very exciting time, but it can be overwhelming so take time to slow down and take care of yourself.
If you could have dinner with one famous Mizzou graduate, who would it be and why?
I would love to have dinner with Clayton Echard from the Bachelor because I would love to know what his thoughts were throughout the show.
What has been your favorite Mizzou memory?
My favorite memory was my first Mizzou Homecoming as a freshman. I loved all the decorations and festivities. It was so fun to watch how current and past students all came together to root for the Tigers!
