November 30, 2018

It's a great day to continue introducing our wonderful newest member class!!

 

 

 

Name: Alicia Dyer

Hometown: Alton, IL

Major: Accounting

 

Why did you come to Mizzou?

I came to Mizzou because when I took my official tour, it felt like home. I loved everything about the campus and the sense of school pride all the students had. I’m so happy I finally get to call it my home. 

 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

In my free time, I enjoy going to the Rec, watching Netflix, and hanging out with my Theta sisters! 

 

What is your dream job?

My dream job is to be a Forensic Accountant. A forensic accountant investigates companies that are suspected of committing financial fraud. I’ve always been interested in criminal justice...probably because I watch too much Criminal Minds!

 

Where would you spend all your time if you could?

A small beach town in Florida where you can ride golf carts around to local ice cream shops and the beach. Those places are so relaxing, and I could definitely spend all my time there. 

 

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

If I could go anywhere in the world, it would be Italy. The beautiful scenery and amazing food are just two reasons why I would chose Italy. This dream will hopefully come true as I plan to study abroad there in a few summers. 

 

 

 

 

Name: Marie McMullan

Hometown: Kennett, MO

Major: Journalism

 

Why did you come to Mizzou?  

I came to Mizzou because it offered me insurmountable opportunities to grow while feeling like my second home.

 

Tell us a few reasons why Theta became your new home.

Theta has become my new home because it has offered me sisters with whom I can share my highs and lows and be my most genuine self.

 

The best song ever written is…?

Vienna by Billy Joel

 

Next on my reading list is…

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green

 

Tell us about your favorite vacation you’ve ever taken!

I went to Europe with a group of Mid-Missouri Girl Scouts when I was fifteen! We spent ten days across the pond, visiting London, Paris, and Switzerland. We walked on Abbey Road in London like the Beatles, climbed to the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and hiked across the beautiful landscapes of Switzerland. I probably slept less than three hours a night during that trip, but I wouldn’t trade that experience for the world!

 

 

 

Name: Izzy Mealy

Hometown: Jefferson City, MO

Major: Elementary Education

 

Why did you come to Mizzou?

I originally was so against coming to Mizzou because it was so close to Jefferson City, but after I toured I knew it was home.

 

If you could have dinner with any person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?

Paul Walker..no Denzel Washington.. no actually Joe Biden (My three favorite men)

 

Tell us a few reasons why Theta became your new home.

I’ll give you one reason.. THE WOMEN IN THETA

 

What is your biggest guilty pleasure?

Keeping up with the Kardashians

 

Where would you spend all of your time if you could?

Probably hanging out with 8-year-olds at St. Joe Summer Camp where I am a counselor

 

 

 

 

Name: Kirby Power

Hometown: Des Moines, Iowa

Major: Journalism/Strategic Communications

 

Why did you come to Mizzou?

I came to Mizzou because the first time I visited in 7th grade, I knew it felt like home. The campus is beautiful, and I was already interested in writing and journalism so I kept it on my radar through high school and fell in love all over again on an official visit during junior year!!

 

Tell us a few reasons why Theta became your new home.

Theta became my home because there were so many girls who wanted to get to know me right away and accepted me for all that I am right away. I knew I was surrounded by leading women during recruitment, and I am even more sure of that now.

 

If you could have dinner with any person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?

If I could have dinner with anyone, I would definitely choose Taylor Swift because I love her music and everything she stands for!

 

What is your dream job?

My dream job is to be public relations director for Chick-Fil-A!!!

 

Favorite TV show and why?

My favorite TV show is Friends because it’s so funny and always makes me happy no matter what kind of day I’m having.

 

 

 

Name: Rianda Wenther

Hometown: Blue Springs, MO

Major: Political Science and Political Communication

 

What is your dream job?

White House Chief of Staff

 

What is your biggest guilty pleasure?

Binge watching Scandal while eating cookie dough

 

Why did you come to Mizzou?

First off, it's close to home. My family is the most important thing in my life so being close enough to drive home whenever was a big part of why I chose Mizzou. I have strong relationships with my younger brothers and wanted to have the ability to drive home at any moment if they need me. Another reason is that both the Political Science and Communication departments are outstanding and offer great educations, so my decision to come to Mizzou was a no-brainer.  

 

Who are your biggest role models?

My mom and grandparents!

 

Next on my reading list is…

Dear Madam President: An Open Letter to the Women Who Will Run the World by Jennifer Palmieri  

 

Theta is…

Having countless sisters who constantly encourage you and support your goals even if they seem impossible

 

 

 

Name: Allison Miles

Hometown: Sikeston, MO

Major: Biological Sciences

 

Why did you come to Mizzou?

I came to Mizzou because it felt like home. I didn’t tour another school that made me feel like I belonged there like Mizzou did.

 

To me, sisterhood means...

To me sisterhood means supporting and loving each other no matter the circumstances. Picking up each other when we fall down and letting them know you will be there for them is one of the most important things we can do for each other.

 

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

If I could go anywhere I would go to Europe because I love the history behind all of the places you can see and the beauty of it all.

 

What is your biggest guilty pleasure?

My biggest guilty pleasure is Starbucks Peppermint Mochas even though I say I hate coffee! 

 

Favorite TV show and why?

My favorite TV show is Friends because it is hilarious and iconic. 

 

 

 

 

Name: Greta Lariosa

Hometown: Jefferson City, MO

Major: Health Sciences, Pre-Professional

 

What is your dream job?

My dream job is to become a dermatologist and open up my own private practice.

 

The best song ever written is...?

This is a tough one to answer.. I grew up listening to a lot of my dad's classic rock collection. I'd have to say either Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin or Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. 

 

Why did you come to Mizzou?

Home for me is only thirty minutes from Columbia, so I was pretty familiar with the area by the time college came around. It's also the perfect distance too...not too close, not too far. Additionally, I have had my eye on Mizzou's School of Medicine ever since I was a little kid. It has always been a dream of mine to be a medical student there.

 

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

Barcelona, Spain. It has been my ultimate dream destination ever since I watched the Cheetah Girls 2, believe it or not! The city has beautiful architecture and history.. I hope to go there for my graduation trip in 2021.

 

Favorite thing to do on a Columbia Saturday?

Go to the Broadway Diner with my family!

 

 

 

 

Name: Megan Hutchinson

Hometown: Kansas City, MO

Major: Nursing

If you could have dinner with any person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?

My Uncle Brent who passed away in September because he was so intelligent and would always answer my questions that I had about literally everything (especially the sciences). He was always interested in my life, and I wish I could tell him about how much I love theta and how it has truly become my second home. 

 

What is your dream job?

Emergency Nurse because of the high speed work environment, and I think I would be super interesting to see who needs help and what they need help for. 

 

Theta is…

My family. My friends truly support me in everything I do, and when I make mistakes they are still always there beside me. 

 

Tell us about your favorite vacation you’ve ever taken!

I went to Spain over Holy Week this past Spring which was one of the coolest vacations I have ever been on because not only did I get to see a whole new culture, but I also made memories with some of my best friends. I even got to see one of my grade school friends, Julio, who was born in Spain and now lives there. 

 

By the time you graduate from Mizzou, what are you hoping to accomplish?

Something that is on my bucket list is spending an entire night in Ellis.
