Mizzou Homecoming 2019

Mizzou’s Homecoming began November 25, 1911. It was then that a tradition began unlike any other of its time. Since then, Mizzou claims one of the largest, longest and best national Homecoming celebrations.

The same year that the Homecoming tradition started, Mizzou also began offering distance education courses. From the early days of correspondence courses for rural Missourians to more than 125 online degree and certificate programs for learners everywhere, our goal has always been about bringing Mizzou to the homes of our students.

In honor of Homecoming 2019, we’re inviting Mizzou’s online alumni to “come home” and tell us what they’ve been up to since they graduated. Throughout the week, we’ll share some of these stories on our social media channels and give graduates an opportunity to learn more about their fellow Tigers.

Did you earn your #OnlineStripes? If so, how has earning your degree impacted your life and career? Capture a video of yourself telling your story. Share this video on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Tag us and use the hashtag #OnlineStripes to enter a giveaway to win one of three $50 gift cards to the Mizzou Store. (And yes, you can shop online!)

Post your entry by Sunday, October 13 at 11:59 p.m. CT — and make sure your post is public so we can see it! We will randomly select three winners on Monday, October 14 at 9 a.m. CT. For more information on rules and how to enter, see below.
