What’s your favorite things about STRIPES?

I love that we can provide such an important free ride home to MU students who need it. With STRIPES, nobody needs to be stranded anywhere without a way to get home.  STRIPES is the group MU can count on to keep the streets and students safe and get them home without judgement. All of our fantastic members love working hard every weekend to make campus safer!

Allee Deck: Director

Hometown: All Over!
Semester in STRIPES: 6th

What’s your favorite thing about STRIPES?

One of the things I love most about STRIPES is being able to see a group of students come together for a common cause. Each night, members might come in knowing 1 person, yet leave making new friends and memories. The work members do is done selflessly and in an effort to keep the community safe. Sometimes, we cannot always see the impact we are making but that doesn’t stop members from loving what they do!

What’s your favorite thing about STRIPES?

The inclusivity the organization promotes. STRIPES fosters a very open and welcoming environment for all its patrons with its non-judgmental service. Our service is merely to aid our fellow tigers in getting a safe and confidential ride home and its really made an impact within our community. Organizations like this are fun outlets for students to meet other students, a great opportunity to give back to the community, and talk to other students from all walks of life that we serve. Its the best of both worlds.

What’s your favorite thing about STRIPES?

My favorite thing about STRIPES is the family atmosphere. There is nothing more welcoming than coming in each night and being able to spend time with 30 or more people that are super fun and friendly. Nights filled with games of Fishbowl, Catch Phrase, and “Friends” Trivia go perfectly with helping the Mizzou community find safe rides home.

What’s your favorite thing about STRIPES?

My favorite thing about STRIPES is that it is so much more than just nightly operations. You make friends that will last a lifetime. I feel at home in this bright orange group.

What’s your favorite thing about STRIPES?

My favorite thing about STRIPES is all the amazing friends that I have made while in the program. Every week you work with new people so the number¬†of people you meet is crazy. I know that without STRIPES I probably wouldn’t have been able to make as many friends all with different likes and interests as I did.

What’s your favorite thing about STRIPES?

You can volunteer for a night, not know anyone working, and by the end of operations you’ll made friends for life – I just absolutely love that about STRIPES. No matter when you work or who you work with, you always will be with friends – even if you haven’t met them yet.

What’s your favorite thing about STRIPES?

I like how no matter who you are, what your major may be, or where you’re from you can be a part of STRIPES. I think this is my favorite thing because every night working operations is different and you are bound to meet someone new each night. I also like that we are so diverse allowing everyone to benefit and get to know the background of others different from themselves!

No matter what is going on in COMO you can have the best night out with your friends in Orange. No matter who is in operations that night you’re bound to meet someone new or find a new bond with someone old.
