University of Missouri Reviews
I love the Mizzou experience! I've met so many amazing people (students and faculty). That I know I will cherish forever. There were times where being there was hard for me because I was so stressed out, but it was worth it. Looking back at my first year of college, that was such a great experience. I have friends from other schools who have such negative things to say about their own school and I look back at my experience and it was just minor things. The classes were challenging, but it made me a stronger person I feel like. I feel more confident in myself that I can really do it. I got through my first year so I'll be okay. From the tears to the laughs it was all worth it. I really love it here and I can't wait to go back in August.
I love the campus environment and the programs, clubs and opportunities here! The only thing keeping me from 5 stars is the fact that most of my teachers are graduate or doctorate students. This has normally not been a personal issue however, it makes it challenging to get help or meet with my teacher when they are worried about their own education. Also, most of these instructors do not know much about the university themselves and it makes me a little upset to know that I am paying a lot of money to be taught by other students. All in all, I value this university and have loved my time here so far!
I graduated in 2019, and I'm now heading to professional school. MU is a tremendous, likely unbeatable, value. Some semesters I paid nearly nothing (<$500) in tuition after the internal scholarships I received. MU will provide you with the knowledge needed to compete at a national level. I started doing undergraduate research in my first semester at MU. Some of MU's unique strengths: top journalism school; medical, law, and veterinary schools on one campus; and the largest (most powerful) nuclear research reactor in the nation. If you're a bright young Missourian, I'd encourage you to look at MU. Also, MU's Honors College will connect you with other high-achieving students; we're not all hard-partyers. Everyone from the honors college dorm I stayed in freshman year graduated in four years and is either heading into a nationally-respected program in their chosen field or full-time employment. Many friends from the honors college also received scholarships for most of the tuition.
