Current Freshman Here! Mizzou offers a multitude of courses regardless of what sparks your interest. On top of the diversity of classes, the Professors always seem to be engaged and eager to help students. You just have to reach out to them anytime something troubling you arises. The campus itself is beautiful. The food from the dining halls may get bland but the city of Columbia surrounding the college offers plenty of interesting pig out spots to eat at. The education offered at Mizzou is definitely competitive with other schools too. Whether you want to become a Journalism major, Engineering major, or Pre-med major, you will always find someway to incorporate yourself into the college.

I consider it s privilege to be able to attend the University of Missouri. Walking around Mizzou's beautiful campus and being challenged and engaged in my classes and extracurriculars is a truly thrilling experience. Mizzou finds itself in a very dynamic and thriving (and very quintessential) college town like no other in the state of Missouri or even in the midwest. Student life here can be as rewarding and engaging as you want, there are certainly many options for involvement and engagement, and a lot of fun!
I really enjoy going to school here at Mizzou. The academics are great with very accredited schools like nursing and journalism. I enjoy the beautiful campus and facilities, especially the library and the rec center. I also work at the university Hospital and overall, the attitude at university of Missouri is education and they are dedicated to that in all affiliations. The teachers are passionate about their subjects and very knowledgeable. My only complaint would be the lack of diversity and safety concerns. As a female, I feel unsafe at night walking to my car. However, with proper precautions it is not inhibiting to normal activities. Overall, student experience is good and education is quality!
