Addie Von Drehle

As a Constitutional Democracy major, Addie studies Social and Political Thought, allowing her to take interdisciplinary classes in areas she care deeply about, such as Black Studies and Women and Gender Studies. Addie is also minoring in Philosophy and Psychology.

The Kinder Institute has introduced Addie to other programs, such as the Oxford Study Abroad Program and the D.C. Summer Program. Addie spent a week in Oxford with twenty classmates attending lectures with Corpus Christi College at Oxford University and exploring the city. This summer, she will take a class with the Kinder Institute while interning in Washington, D.C.

Outside of my studies, Addie has been a leader in Rockin’ Against Multiple Sclerosis, Mizzou’s largest student-run philanthropic organization. The money raised by RAMS goes to patients of the Multiple Sclerosis Institute to fund medical equipment and supplies not covered by insurance. Addie has been involved with RAMS since fall of her freshman year, and spent her junior year as its student-director. In the past three years, RAMS has raised over $360,000. Addie also served her sophomore year as the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Chapter Educator for Pi Beta Phi.
