I think Columbia is great, but I think it will be better after Mizzou's reputation is repaired. Columbia is a college town, so the university plays a large part about what people think of the town.

Columbia is a college-town through and through. It continues to grow as the University of Missouri grows, and almost all business is centered around the University. Columbia was also named the best place to be in a zombie apocalypse.
I live in a town in Missouri that is about 13,000; called Marshall. I like Marshall because there's a great deal of Civil War history here. The one thing I would like improve is to have more activities for single adults to keep them here.
