As a member of the UMSL community, you are our best ambassador.

The University of Missouri-St. Louis is a vibrant and diverse community that we are all proud of. From our outstanding students to our dedicated faculty and staff, we are a community of scholars who are committed to excellence. No one knows this better than you. That's why we want to empower each and every Triton to be an UMSL Ambassador.

We all have opportunities throughout our day to share why we chose UMSL and to give compelling reasons why others should choose UMSL whether you're visiting with a prospective student, someone who is considering joining our faculty or staff, or a potential community partner. We invite you to share your own story: What made you choose UMSL? What makes you proud to be a Triton? Why should others join the UMSL community? Use the #UMSLproud to start sharing your UMSL pride today!

UMSL hosted a #UMSLproud Kickoff event in fall 2017 alongside Food Truck Friday on campus. Students, faculty and staff received free #UMSLproud T-shirts and trucker hats to display their university pride outwardly while munching on some delicious food, playing games on the Recreation andWellness Center lawn and enjoying bubbles from the Bubble Bus.

Here are just a few pics of the fun!

Be #UMSLproud of a fun campus. The Bubble Bus created a bubble-tastic atmosphere at Food Truck Friday, prompting students to jump and pop the bubbles floating by.



Be #UMSLproud of the people you meet and the friends you make at UMSL. Tritons (from left) Monet Davis, Taylor Grant, Lia Hester and Raylen Sanders form memories together in their over-sized shirts. They received the last few of the 500 T-shirts given away at the event. The shirts said “I chose UMSL” on the front and “#UMSLproud” on the back.


Be #UMSLproud of the smart, driven and diverse people that make up campus. The trucker hats featured those three words, which were some of the top words students, faculty, staff and the St. Louis community used­ to describe the type of people who choose UMSL according to the “Choose your word” surveys.


Be #UMSLproud of free cupcakes. Sweet giveaways the first week of classes at UMSL offered a classic college experience and a bit of sugar to get students through the jam-packed week. Cupcakes were from the Destination Desserts truck.
