Where are you from? I grew up on a farm in northeast Missouri, but I—along with my wife and five children—also lived in Taipei, Taiwan, for 10 years. Our time overseas, and the move back to the States, has made me very interested in how people transition between cultures.

Why should a student choose MSSU? Missouri Southern offers a great education at a very affordable cost, and it’s part of a wonderful community located right  in the heart of the US.
