University of Missouri - Kansas City Reviews
I majored in Health Sciences. I enjoyed my courses and the professors but my degree is too broad. I recommend specializing from the get-go; major in something specific like Nursing (UMKC has a fantastic nursing program) or Law, Medicine, Dental, etc. However, UMKC is a great school and is very diverse. It's affordable compared to most four year universities. I would definitely reapply for Nursing or a master's degree program in the future!
I've been at this school for over a year now and the professors always bend over backwards to help you in any way, shape or form. I love that because college is extremely stressful, especially when things at home arent ideal. I love the student union and the fact that it seems like your printing allowance never ends. One thing i wish theyd add to the campus is affordable scooters to ride when your classes are on opposite sides of the campus. But hey, im an advocate for exercise! I love this school and the people that are in it. It's a family here.
I love UMKC. They offer a lot of extracurricular activities if you aren’t an athlete for a very low cost! They also offer a school shuttle that transports you safely back and forth from the main campus to Hospital Hill, which is so convenient when I don’t want to drive all the way to one campus using my transportation. Oh! And can’t forget about campus police, they are very attentive and are always available when you need them!
