  • Estimated Costs: ~$7,500.00

  • Estimated Time Investment: ~8 Weeks


SBA Office


The picture featured depicts the past state of the Student Bar Association. It was functional as an office, yet the almost 40 years of wear and tear on the office furniture, clutter, and ripped walls, made it a place of avoidance and challenging use. A large portion of the time was spent fixing the wall, water, and mice damage (there are no mice anymore).


With a budget of $800, a winter break, and a few personal donations from a student, the office was recreated into a space that upholds the quality Mizzou Law yields. The work was completed by one student, with the help of a few other students and one retired teacher. 

  • Total Costs: ~$1,200.00

  • Update Time: ~4 Weeks 


Student Cafe


The Student Cafe is one of the most utilized student spaces in Hulston. Students spend several hours in the day eating, conversing, and building community.

  • Total Costs: ~$6,000.00

  • Time Invested: ~7 Weeks 


Wellness/Maternity Room


The Wellness Room took 3 months to find funding, 2 weeks to put together and finish. The funding for this room was provided by the Dean, the Mizzou Student Capital Improvement Grant, and individual student contributions.  

It is now utilized as a space for students, faculty, and staff to relax, destress, and for any maternity/paternity needs. It is heavily used, widely supported, and built entirely by students.

  • Total Costs: ~$2,000.00

  • Update Time: ~2 Weeks

More projects and updates may develop, in addition to the ones list above, depending on resources available.
