As a freshman living in Rollins Hall, Anthony Greer reached out to the hall coordinator to see if there was any way he could help out the hall council. He ended up designing fliers for the first Rollins Rave. That same year, he joined the IMPACT Movement ministry on campus. This year, he is the organization’s president.

“I always believe in trying to help out,” Greer says. “I believe in trying to get involved with something bigger than myself.”

Greer uses technical skills in multiple aspects of his involvement. He is heavily involved with KCOU, MU’s student-run radio station. He was assistant chief engineer his freshman and sophomore years and now chief engineer for the station. “I started helping to set a vision of how we wanted to move the station forward as far as equipment,” he says.

Greer also works with MSA/GPC (Missouri Students Association/Graduate Professional Council) Tech, which provides staging, lighting, sound and other services for campus events.

With new knowledge learned through his campus involvement, he was able to improve the sound system at his home church in Chicago.

In addition to helping out back home and on campus, Greer also enjoys working with younger students through the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE). He was recently appointed to the NSBE Region 5 student board. As public relations and publications chair, he will facilitate communication between the regional executive board and chapters, and serve as the region’s spokesperson.

Overall, Greer says that the encouragement that each of the organizations has provided has helped him tailor his involvement to his skills and build on what he has learned.

“I think they all challenged me to get out of my comfort zone,” Greer says.
