Missouri State University is located in Springfield, the third-largest city in the state. In this year's homecoming festival, the Falun Gong club gave an exercise demonstration, and entered a float, dance group and waist drum group into the parade. The float was decorated with lotus flowers and the waist drum team wore yellow costumes. Both received rounds of applause and praise from spectators.

There were also many Chinese spectators, including some Chinese students who recently came to the US. Many of them waved to the Falun Gong practitioners, took photos and were happy to see the beautiful float.

In the exhibition for clubs and colleges after the parade, the Falun Gong club's booth caught the attention of many visitors. Some people learned the exercises on the spot.

Four young women passed by the stand and were surprised to learn that such a good practice was persecuted in China. After learning the facts, they learned the exercises. Many students were interested in the sitting meditation and learned the fifth exercise on the spot. A few of the students could sit with legs double-crossed.

Many students came to express their support for Falun Gong, and their objection to the persecution. They said they would ask their elected officials in their districts to help stop the persecution.

One Chinese girl came to learn the facts about Falun Gong. She said she had heard of the persecution, but did not know much. She took some Falun Gong information brochures and a CD, and said she would read carefully.
