Lainy Lamb’s advice for incoming students is to go above and beyond your comfort zone.
“The University of Missouri has numerous opportunities for individuals to get involved in any clubs and organizations that might interest you,” she says. “There is really a club for anything here! Go out of your comfort zone and join clubs/organizations and meet new people, this is how I met some of my best friends. Not to mention, these clubs provide you with great leadership and communication skills you can use for your future endeavors.”

In this role, she is a resource for girls and anything pertaining to their academics, as well as putting on academic events for the entire chapter.
What made you choose Mizzou?
I chose Mizzou because of the extraordinary physical therapy program Mizzou has, as well as everything the School of Health professions has to offer, academically and professionally.
What residence hall did you live in? Were you in a FIG (freshmen interest group)?
I lived in Johnston hall and was not in a FIG. What’s your favorite Mizzou club/organization?
My favorite organization I am a part of would be my sorority, Alpha Chi Omega. This sorority has brought me numerous leadership and academic opportunities, as well as lifelong friends that I would have never met without joining Alpha Chi.
Where is your favorite place to study on campus?
My favorite place to study on campus would be Ellis library, especially the reading room because it is so quiet!
