Take a moment to meet the Sherman Family from Dardenne Prairie, MO.
What year is your student? Hannah Sherman is a freshman this year at Missouri State.
What resources has she found useful on campus? Hannah has really benefited the Bear Claw and she loves to go to the Foster Recreation Center to work out. Hannah has made so many new friends by joining a sorority – Delta Zeta!
What are some things you like to do in Springfield? We love to try new restaurants that we don’t have in the St. Louis area. We also like the Battlefield Mall and going downtown.
What was something you wish you knew when your student started college? Honestly, the process of purchasing textbooks was the most complicated thing that we have experienced. We felt very prepared because of SOAR and lots of e-Mail communication.
What are some ways you support Hannah? We send Hannah regular care packages and lots of money for Starbucks – ha ha! We also send encouraging text messages on a regular basis and try to let Hannah figure things out while staying available when she needs something. We also have Ann wear lots of Missouri State gear – Go Bears!
What is one piece of advice you would give another family sending their first child to college? Spend the money on a really good mattress pad/topper and mattress protector – it’s worth it!
What is one Missouri State Tradition that your family wants to complete on campus together? Go to Family Weekend and Homecoming! It is so much fun to meet your students new friends and hang out on campus by the fountains.
