On a recent Tuesday night, students at Excellence Hall had surprise visitors: University of Missouri Chancellor Alexander N. Cartwright and wife, Melinda, had arrived to kick off the first night in their two-day stay at MU residence halls.
From sampling the omelet bar at a nearby dining hall to chatting with residents who were doing laundry, from playing Ping-Pong with eager competitors to enjoying cookies with undergraduates in the student lounge, the Cartwrights had an inside peek into the Mizzou student experience.
During their stay, the Cartwrights also had a chance to meet members of two of the university’s newest competitive teams. The MU Chess Team coached the couple through a game and Mizzou Esports team members taught the Chancellor to play Rocket League and Overwatch at their practice facility in Center Hall.
