Most Important Numbers to Remember

Numbers are important in life. Phone numbers, social security, credit card, you get the point. So forget your high school lunch pin, and pull out your phone or piece of notebook paper and take down these numbers.

1) PawPrint: This is essential. Memorize this. If you’re ever in a group project, most people won’t pass out phone numbers, so instead they throw around their PawPrint for email.

2) Student Number: If you’re an incoming freshman, chances are you have not remembered this extravagant number, but you better learn quickly. You need this number for buying things at the Mizzou Store, tickets, books, and even when first checking into your dorm room. Think of this as your new lunch pin number, it’s vital if you want to survive.

3) Social Security: If you plan on getting a job in college you will need to know if not have your social security card with you.

4) STRIPES: Your summer welcome leader probably had you put this into your phone during your visit, but here it is again. (573)-442-9672. Call this number if you need a ride home from 10pm-3am / Thursday-Saturday. It’s not just for kids looking to get home after getting drunk.

5) Front Desk of your Res Hall: Things will get rowdy, especially in your lobby if your living in a dorm this year. If it’s midnight on a Tuesday and people are screaming at the top of their lungs, call the front desk and whoever is on call will take care of the hooligans. It’s anonymous and will save you a headache. Ask for the number when you move in.

Buyers Beware

The only books you actually need to buy from the “Mizzou Store” (formally the University Bookstore…), are those that the school makes themselves i.e. the ones professors write or made a contribution to. You will save hundreds of dollars if you compare prices online, borrow a friends book (who once had the same class), or rent.

With this in mind, if you arranged for the Early Bird pickup, which begins tomorrow, don’t settle for pointless crap that the bookstore may have thrown in your big box. For example, do you really need that Spanish-English Dictionary? How about that silicone sleeve for your Clicker? Just because it is in your box, doesn’t mean you have to buy it.

ASK Away

I know everything about Mizzou, okay, that’s a lie…but I do know a fair amount of information that would blow any incoming freshman’s brain all over Speaker’s Circle. This being said, you should go ahead and click here and ASK me a question about Mizzou / Columbia / or whatever. After all, I am a senior now, so that must mean I’m wise, right?

FYI: Don’t bombard me with information regarding Greek Life. I don’t even own a pair of Sperry’s.

Mizzou Battles Bulldogs Tonight!

image

Nick Ehrhard/The Maneater

Following an embarrassing weekend loss to Ole Miss, the Mizzou basketball team (12-3, 1-1 in SEC) will try to bounce back against when they take on the Georgia Bulldogs (6-9, 0-2 in SEC) this evening at 7pm at Mizzou Arena. MU will look to continue its winning streak at home, having yet to lose a game this season, but they will once again be with the services of Lawrence Bowers (MCL sprain).

Notes:

  • Georgia has lost its last 2 games, one of which was a 33 point loss to Florida
  • The Bulldogs are 0-3 on the road
  • Mizzou is 7-0 following a loss this year
  • Phil Pressey has has 53 assists in his last 5 games (7.4/game) is best in the SEC and No. 6 in the NCAA
  • In the 5 games he has started, Jabari Brown is shooting 45.4% from 3

M-I-Z!

Leave it to kU to have embarrassing t-shirts. In my opinion, you don’t have “swag” if you wear a something that says said word.

Best of the Best: Part II - OVERRATED

A few weeks ago, I compiled a list with some of the Best of the Best places to eat, drink, watch game etc. Well this time I have decided to make a list of what I think are some of the most overrated places/things to eat, drink, shop, or do in CoMO.

Click here for Part I

Enjoy!

Most Overrated Restaurant:

Shakespeare’s Pizza -

Okay, okay…now before you chop my head off, let me just state that the pizza is good, but the price of the product is terrible. Shakespeare’s is a must if you’re visiting Columbia, but this place is by no means a regular spot for college kids. Aside from the price, another con is that it is packed on gameday and weekends, so the chances of getting a table within 30 minutes is doubtful.

Most Overrated Bar/Club:

Deja Vu -

"The Vu" is a comedy icon in Columbia, but as far the dance club goes…stay home.

"Worst night club I have even been to. Trashy girls, bounces are rude and management is worse. There drink are water down by all the ice. Horrible club!" - Yelp User

Most Overrated Thing to Do:

The 7 Traditions -

Sure they might be fun to do, but a lot of these are illegal.

Most Overrated (worse) place to Buy anything Mizzou:

The MU Bookstore -

Unless you plan on student charging it, you might as well just head downtown to a local shop and buy Mizzou books, clothing, accessories, or gadgets for way cheaper. The bookstore scams hard, but who can blame them.

Most Overrated Dining Hall -

Rollins -

Having lived on campus for two years, I’d have to say that Rollins was my least favorite dining hall. It smells, its busy, and the food is bland. During your tour you might have heard your guide say, “Rollins is the best place to get pizza”. Are you kidding me? The pizza holds together like a piece of toilet paper and is greasy enough to give you acne. Another thing, stay away from Rollins Late Night unless you want feel your blood move.
