University of Missouri - Kansas City Reviews
Review University of Missouri - Kansas City
I am a Junior in the University of Missouri-Kansas City's School of Nursing and Health Studies program. I appreciate the intimate class sizes and have had several dynamic, passionate professors throughout my courses thus far. The instructors are always willing and available to help explain areas that require extensive clarification. Supplemental instruction, something I benefit from, is offered for several courses and they have concrete plans to expand this program. The School of Nursing and Health Studies is affordable, competitive, and hold high expectations for their students. An area that could use some improvement is organization. For example, there is a deadline for clinical requirements and they were not addressed until mid semester this year. Another area of weakness could be communication between faculty and staff. There was a change in the plan of study that a professor let me know about and my academic advisor wasn't aware of the change until I brought it to her attention.
The University of Missouri KC is one of the most diverse and pleasurable campuses I have ever been to. There is always a positive energy on the small campus, with clubs always available for fun activities. The LGBTQIA community is very active at UMKC, which is great to see in the Bible Belt. The Student Health center is very helpful for talk therapy, offering free sessions to students who may be depressed or just feeling the stress of taking on college and being away from home for the first time. A great school that I will try to persuade all younger friends to come to.
I have completed my first year of college already and soon ill be ready to start my second year. My first couples day here were very hard for me the transition was hard from high school to college but I got it. I loved how the first semester the professors I had were understanding that the transition was hard so for the first couple weeks they gave us tips and tricks on how to survive and because of that, it made me feel like UMKC was my home. My first semester was wonderful however my second was a down fall professors were not as curious. It was very hard and seeking for help. It was pretty hard because not everyone is new anymore and now they just do their own thing and I felt very trapped and alone. The excitement of the environment was gone. However I still managed to survive. I'm very excited for this upcoming semester to get the taste of my first semester here at UMKC.
