Freshmen stream through the Columns at the Francis Quadrangle as part of the 15th annual Tiger Walk on Sunday. Tiger Walk, which began in 1995, symbolizes the students' entrance into the MU community.

The Tiger Walk, the symbolic walk through the Columns toward Jesse Hall, is a tradition for MU freshmen. After the walk Sunday evening, MU faculty served Tiger Stripe ice cream to the students by MU faculty, and the Marching Mizzou and the Golden Girls, MU's dance squad, performed. When these freshmen are seniors, they'll get to repeat the walk, but away from Jesse Hall toward downtown Columbia.
