I loved visiting the campus. The students were very friendly and gave a wonderful tour. Also, there were lots of fun filled activities and the atmosphere was very comfortable and relaxing.
They are more than helpful with any questions you may have about the college, academics, campus life..etc. It's an amazing clean, safe, Christ-centered and hardworking environment.
There is nothing I disliked about the college!

College of the Ozarks provides education with free tuition. To "pay" for your tuition you work 15 hours a week along with classes. The opportunities for work, paid trips, etc at College of the Ozark are extremely wide and varied. The efforts to help students graduate debt free are amazing. This college certainly requires a good work ethic and attitude to thrive. I didn't think the rules were very strict, but I heard a lot of kids complaining about them. So you have to come in knowing you are getting a good deal. Make the most out of the opportunities you are given!
Excellent faith based education. College of the Ozarks offers a four year liberal arts education centered around its five fold mission. This mission enhances students understanding and engagement with academics, vocation, Christianity, culture, and patriotism. This college also implements a work education program that allows students to work on campus to cover tuition costs. With incredibly dedicated staff and faculty and a variety of opportunities for travel and professional development, this is an experience students will be forever grateful for.
