University of Missouri- Columbia is a school that allows such a variety of studies that almost anyone can find a major they will enjoy pursuing. Personally, it was one of only a few schools in Missouri with my emphasis area of Nuclear Medicine Technologist which is a major reason I choose to attend this school. This decision was a great one because Mizzou has helped me grow personally, emotionally, religiously, and in so many other ways. The amount of clubs and organizations that are on campus allows everyone to be involved in something they are passionate about!

Mizzou has become more than a home for me. I am going into my junior year, majoring in Biology, minoring in History & Psychology. The campus itself is so beautiful, and is always a joy to walk across. We also have our little quirks; there's a man who brings his massive dog everyday to campus to let students pet it, there's a guy who is a Guinness world record holder for his hacky sack skills, who routinely practices on campus. Also, most Fridays, there's food trucks!
I couldn't be happier with my decision to chose Mizzou as the place where I learn and grow.
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.
