COLUMBIA — As part of our MU Homecoming coverage, we thought it would be fun to see where some MU alumni have ended up.

Using the hashtag "#MIZWhereRU" on Twitter and some good, old-fashioned legwork before the Homecoming football game, we collected 78 responses that included locations. (See the complete responses, in tweets and photos, here.)

We used our Twitter and in-person responses to create a map using Google Fusion Tables. The points on the map are accurate to city and state. To make sure all of the data points could be seen, we had to tweak the coordinates of responses that used the same city, so you probably won't have much luck finding someone in your exact neighborhood.

The map allows to you scroll and zoom in and out like other Google-powered maps. Zooming in on specific areas will reveal more points.
