Spring Roar Recap

A night to celebrate our outstanding Team Mizzou students.

Every year, Spring Roar celebrates the hard work and achievements of Team Mizzou, the student employees who help make MizzouRec magical. On May 5, Team Mizzou members from all areas (from Aquatics to zouLIFE to Frontline to Events to Creative…the list goes on) and Professional Staff members gathered at the Columns Club at Memorial Stadium for a night of friends, food, awards and a special surprise.

(BTW…all of these awesome pictures and more are on our Facebook page!)


The (new) venue.

Hello, Faurot. This year, Spring Roar was hosted at the Columns Club in Memorial Stadium.

The food. Enough said.

From hors d’oeuvres to the candy bar to dinner to dessert…seriously: no words needed.

The awards.

We don’t call it a Celebration of Excellence for nothing. Team Mizzou members must have worked 192 hours and have a JPA (Job Performance Average) of 2.7 in order to be eligible for an invitation. This year, more than 300 of our 400+ members qualified to attend. You can get the low-down on all of our awards and recipients here.

The surprise.

At the conclusion of the awards ceremony, Team Mizzou members were escorted to the Mizzou home locker room and had the unexpected thrill of ending the evening in true Tiger style…tunnel run, smoke machine, fireworks and checking that “kiss the 50 yard line” item off the bucket list.



Thanks for a wonderful year, Team Mizzou! It was truly excellent.
