University of Missouri - St. Louis Reviews

16 reviews
I love the small school atmosphere in the big city. I have a great class and enjoy school! I like the campus itself, very nicely done. The college is always listening to students and make changes to improve the experience of everyone who comes through the school. I love the professors, who are so willing to help my classmates and I succeed in school and life. They are always available and want to help. I would change the area around the school to include more restaurants, cafes and coffee shops.

Professors were very knowledgeable in their subjects and I liked most of them. Campus life for grad students is quite alright. Easy place to make friends, people are outgoing. Lots of internship opportunities in St Louis and easy access to the city. An ideal college for graduate school. Just a warning, I witnessed a fair amount of racism on campus, particularly from security and professors, I'm White so I can't speak for how bad it truly is, but what I've seen isn't great. Additionally diversity is quite low, and most friend groups are self segregated. Polticially a pretty even mix of liberals and conservatives, the immediate area is very liberal, but fairly dangerous.
My advisor was excellent! She guided me through my academic plan and was able to find courses that accommodated my lifestyle as a teacher and single mother. Tuition is reasonable with financial aid opportunities available. There are activities and clubs to fit a variety of interests. I was sold at the Ted Drewes' vending machine! Just kidding. Staff are welcoming and friendly and if I didn't have my own place, I would've definitely stayed on campus.
