Hannah Mowrer is a freshman from Kennett, in the Missouri boot heel. She is a health science major with a pre- professional emphasis. Hannah looks forward to having a career in which she can help others in either social work or as a physician’s assistant.
One piece of advice Hannah would give to incoming students is to allow themselves time to adjust to your new lifestyle.
“College is about figuring out who you are as a person and what you want your future to look like,” Hannah says. “It is okay to not know exactly what you want to do. Don’t sweat it because you have time, and everything will work out in the end.”
In addition serving on the School of Health Professions Student Ambassador Leadership Team, Hannah also serves on the Intellectual Development Board and Chapter Relations and Standards Board of her sorority, Alpha Chi Omega. Hannah also is an Honors College student and a Show-Me Scholar.

Why should students choose Mizzou?
Students should choose Mizzou because it has many different options for countless careers. We are one of few schools that have a medical school, veterinarian school, and law school on our campus. It sets us apart from others and allows students to explore different areas in order to decide what they want to pursue for their future.
