I have loved my two years here at Ozarks. From the moment I stepped foot onto campus I felt a sense of community. I feel as though everyone wants me to grow! There are quirks that drop Ozarks below a perfect score but you won’t be able to find a more perfect place to spend four years of your life. If you are looking for a small liberal arts school that was founded on growth and success, Ozarks is the right place for you!

Ozarks may be a small university, but it’s also a small university. The most incredible thing about Ozarks is community that you find around campus, not just between students and other students, but between students, faculty, staff and every part of campus. When I see my professors around town and campus we always stop and talk, just to catch up; the college president will eat lunch in the cafeteria. I’ve missed class before and then got coffee with my professor to cover that lecture material. That’s something I think can’t be matched almost anywhere else. There’s always room to improve connections between faculty, administration, students, and staff, but that’s something to work for moving forward.
When I first got here, everything was different from where I came from, the food, people, the language, and culture. The thing I liked the most, is how I was well received when I got here, I felt welcomed. I like the diverse environment that we live in, I like the fact that the university does not focus on education only, but on the six core values: discipline, Sabbath, hospitality, growth, honesty, and service. The university takes care of student in providing places/offices with qualified staff like student affairs, outdoor office, public safety, student success center, library, all these places make life at Ozarks easy and more enjoyable. I would university of the Ozarks to open more scholarships to all students, to organize research programs, to organize more competitions other than athletics with other universities; for example, to expand the poet project that we do here, with other universities.
