St. Louis, MO
Hi everyone! My name is Ashlyn Calhoun and I’m a 1L at Mizzou. I attended Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, IL where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I loved my small liberal arts institution but I could not be happier to be here at Mizzou and enjoy the big school amenities and SEC culture!
I’m originally from St. Louis, Missouri, so I grew up rooting for Mizzou in sporting events. I made the decision to apply to law school during my junior year of college after taking a few pre-law classes and falling in love with my trial litigation class. I worked at a family law firm in Bloomington during my time as an undergraduate and that truly helped me seal the deal! The atmosphere here in Hulston Hall is one of collaboration, friendship, and determination, and I could think of no other place I would rather be to pursue my legal education. If you’re looking for a tight-knit community surrounded by a larger institution, look no further than Mizzou Law. Please feel free to contact me or any of the other ambassadors if you have any questions leading into your law school journey. MIZ!
