What does it mean to be a Mule or Jennie? You are part of a community that takes pride in hard work, innovation, diversity and a spirit of service.
For more than 150 years students have embraced the culture and spirit of the University of Central Missouri. Each generation of students upholds UCM's time-tested traditions, modernizes others and creates their own. We invite all students and alumni to become an official UCM Traditions Keeper!
See the directions below for dowloading the free UCM Traditions Keeper App on your mobile device. You will find dozens of things to do and places to visit around campus. Check out the traditions that interest you, then check them off on the app.
Three ways to get the app:
As a student, you are already part of UCM's Mule Strong legacy. You can also be a keeper of some fun traditions - and earn prizes for your efforts!
Stop by the Smiser Alumni Center to claim your prizes as you check off your To-Do List and submit photos in the app.
Although you may no longer live near campus, you are Forever a Mule. Join in the fun and earn UCM memorabilia from anywhere across MuleNation!
We will ship your prizes to you when you email your photos and To-Do Lists from the app to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line "Traditions."

Click on "Traditions to complete" in the left menu to view the catagories and traditions you can complete. Once you have chosen a tradition, click the plus sign and add it to your To-Do List. You can view your list by selecting "To-Do List" in the left menu. In order to complete the task, you will need to experience the tradition you have selected and submit a photo.
In the left menu there is an option for "Photo Submissions." Select this option, go to the category your tradition was in and add your photo. Caption the photo with the name of the tradition. Once you have finished these steps, go to your To-Do List and mark the tradition as completed. You will do this for each tradition individually.
