University of Central Missouri Reviews
The campus size was also a great benefit. While I was a little hesitant attending a college that had a campus smaller than the family hog lot, I grew to love this aspect. It made for smooth transitions into new semesters with new class locations, and allowed me to condense my daily scheduled time on campus to allow more time for studying and extra curriculars.
I would highly recommend UCM. Go Mules!
I love the campus. It’s pretty small, so you can get to where you need to go fairly quickly, but it’s also beautiful. I considered transferring to move back home, but I just couldn’t leave my program. 10/10 recommend!
