Hello! My name is Michael Stoecklin and I graduated from Mizzou in 2016 with a degree in history. I enjoyed my time at Mizzou and thoroughly enjoyed the history courses I took during my time in Columbia. I’m an avid sports fan and was proud to be a part of the illustrious group known as the “Antlers” for three years while at Mizzou.

My fondest memories of my time in the MU history department are the classes I took with Professor John Frymire. His approach to studying and talking about history made me see history as more than an interesting area of study, but a possible vocation. Today, I consider him one of my academic role models of what a scholar should be.
