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!
Review University of Missouri
The University of Missouri is a "big" university that still manages to feel a bit small. I can be anywhere on campus within 20 minutes, even though my dorm is the farthest dorm away from everything. My favorite place to study in on the second floor of the student center next to the fireplace. It's quieter than the first floor is, but life is still going on below you, so it's not silent. The food in the dining halls is great and at any given point of the day there is almost always one dining hall open somewhere. Supposedly the food they serve in the places inside the student center is also good, but I haven't gotten a chance to try any of it yet. The Mizzou After Dark events are great, and there's at least one a month to go to. Another good thing are the weekly free movies on Wednesdays, and the $1 movies on the weekends; this semester's line up is great! It includes Doctor Strange, The Edge of Seventeen, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Moana, Hidden Figures, and La La Land.
Everywhere you go in Columbia you see students, fans, parents, strangers all wearing those same two colors- black and gold. The amount of school spirit and support that's shown by the community is truly a unique component of Mizzou. Every football game and men's basketball game is packed! There are special clubs on campus that are specifically designed to support the varsity sports, there are intramural teams to join, and we have some truly amazing athletes on campus. Including the adapted sports like Wheelchair Basketball. Sports can become a part of the college experience for anyone at Mizzou.
