Eboni Acoff is a junior from O’Fallon, Ill. She is a health science major with an emphasis in rehabilitation studies and a minor in psychology. She plans to attend medical school.

“A piece of advice I would give to an incoming freshman is to get to know your professors,” Eboni says. “Most professors at Mizzou are not only willing to work with you if you’re having trouble in class, but also want to know you on a personal level. Also, when applying for academic programs that require letters of recommendation, having well established student-faculty relationships is beneficial.”

In addition to serving as a School of Health Professions student ambassador, Eboni works for Adventure Club, an elementary after school program, is involved in human development-based undergraduate research, and attended a winter trip to Nicaragua with Mizzou’s Global Medical Training program, where she assisted in providing over 1,700 patients with medical attention.

When did you know Mizzou was “the one”?

I knew Mizzou was the right school for me when I toured campus for the first time and I felt like I had lived here for years.

What’s your favorite place to eat in CoMo?

Insomnia Cookies- it is always nice to treat yourself to a sweet snack every so often.
