When I attend Discover Central Day i felt like I belonged at UCM. I felt so at peace walking around campus. I haven't visited any other school but UCM. That's because at that moment I left like this was the school for me. I know for a fact that I am going to have the time of my life at UCM!! Go Mules!!!
I love it here. There is greek life for those who want it and there are plenty of sports. I love my professors. They are not only really helpful but they are fun to be around. Everyone on staff is amazing.
I even feel safe on campus. Which is hard for me but they have campus lit up enough that it's never pitch black, plus they have people who can walk you back home.
It's awesome, great vibes and affordable!
I think the University of Central Missouri was a great choice for me. It fits my needs really well. The best thing that I like about it is the class sizes because it is about the same size as my regular high school class. I find that the professors are so helpful, and most of them do not have a problem answering questions. Although there are parties sometimes at night, it isn't uncool to not go to them. There are plenty of people who choose not to party.

If I were to talk to my 17-year-old self, I would tell her to go straight to the University of Central Missouri instead of going to community college first. There were several things I wish I would have done as an undergraduate including being more involved in on-campus activities. However, more pertinent is the relationships I developed with my professors. I wish I could tell my high school self what to major and minor in so I wouldn't have changed them so much. I may have gotten to take more classes with professors that I particularly favor. Also, I would have looked into getting a job on campus so I wouldn't have had to go home every weekend to work. I think I would have enjoyed my undergraduate experience more if I hadn't been so tunnel-visioned on the degree. Of course, the degree is why I went on to UCM but there is so much more to the experience that I missed out on.
With the classes i am taking, most if not all are devoted to finishing thier degree and getting out of the university.
Students were removed from the dorms when the electricity went out or extreme bad weather. Students living in the dorms had no other place to go.
my school is a small university in the middle of missouri, most people know each other, and theres not much to do.
I loved the integration of other programs with the major sports programs on campus. This allowed virtually everyone to become involved with the major school events on campus.
I don't know how unique it is, but we have a great sense of school spirit. Espeically with the music students, they bond together very closely.
My school is best knows for its school spirit, its wide spread majors and greek life. The school prides itself on getting student involved and meeting new people. They are always looking for new majors to add and not just to have those majors but find the best professors around to teach them. And the greek life doesn't just involve the greeks in gets the whole school into doing activities and making a contrabution to the enviroment.
How small the town really is. If you are super introverted, make friends otherwise you will commonly find yourself a bit bored; you have to make your own fun!
I haven't found anything to be terribly frustrating. Financial Aid is not all that great sometimes though.
Central missouri has a large diversity in it's students so any one can attend.
Professors only know your name if you speak up in class, and who knows, one day you might need them for a reference so it will be in your best interest for them to know who you are.
My favorite class has been race,class, and gender with Miss Greer. My least favorite class is Geology.
I spend about 40 percent of my time studying, and I know most students probably spend less.
Students really get into and enjoy in depth class discussion, it is a time where you can really experience both sides of a subject.
I hear all the time students having intellectual conversations outside of class. Here, students really get into their school work.
My major is psychology
I spend a lot of time with professors outside of class clarifying notes, and furthering discussion concepts.
I feel great about the schools academic requirements. They aren't too tedious and they aren't too loose.
I think that the education at this school geared more toward learning for its own sake.
The kind of person that shouldn't attend UCM is one that does not believe in hard work.
Many people may think that the students here are hicks or hillbillies, country kids with no cultural experience; simply because our school is located in Missouri. However, that stereotype is very inaccurate! We have tons of exchange students from different countries and cultures, students from the city, and yes even some from the country. There is a very nice mix of backgrounds and cultures here at UCM.
The best thing about my school would surely be the school spirit. I rarely find a college student without it. When students get involved on campus they get more out of their college experience
One thing that I would change about the University of Central Missouri is really nothing. I love this school. From the amazing price range to the wonderful teachers.
I think that my school is just right. The class sizes are not too big and not too small, they are usually about 30 students.
When I tell people that I go to this school, their reaction is excited. I have never had a bad reaction from telling people that I attend UCM.
On campus, I spend most of my time studying in my room or hanging out with friends. When you are in college you have a responsibility to you education, and I surely take that seriously.
UCM is a typical college town.
My opinion of the school's administration is fairly good. If you have a question, it will be answered in a timely manner. However, I have had issues regarding the transfer of some files to UCM. This may have been a slight hiccup in their business handling..
There hasn't been any large controversy on campus.
There is so much school pride here at UCM! The students here take their sports seriously.
The unusual thing about the school is that there may be a ghost in Yeater.
There hasn't been any experience here that is of any special quality.
There hasn't been any frequent student complaints that I am aware of.
Im not a bragger, but if I had to brag, then I would brag about my major and getting to play rugby for the college.
The most popular organizations on campus are the greek organizations.
The groups I'm involved with are NSCS, the honors college, and psychology club.
Students in dorms usually don't leave their doors open for obvious reasons.Stealing.
The athletic events are insane, there is so much school spirit. The guest speakers get a lot of attention from students are residents along the campus. I haven't been to any theatre productions.
I have not seen a dating scene especially because I am in a relationship.
I met most of my friends either in class or in the dorms.
I am NEVER awake at 2a.m.
There is a home coming tradition that happens each year.
People party quite a bit here.
To me sororities and fraternities are not that important, to other people they are life.
Last weekend i went home.
On saturday night you can go a party and not drink haha.
I don't do anything off campus.
The stereotype of students at my school is that all we do is party. Although partying is a sizable percentage of what the students do here, we are high achieving in academics and there is a lot more to UCM students than partying. Of course we have our jocks, frat kids, and nerds, but who doesn't!I think that people have the wrong idea about UCM. We are a great school with great students and professors.
I think this depends on who you're asking. For the students that actually go there, the stereotype is lots of people in sweatpants and sweatshirts doing one of two things: freaking out and drinking lots of coffee trying to pass, or just there for the social experience and not caring.
A typical weekend at UCM is what you make of it. If you like to party, you might consider it to be really fun and exciting, however; if you are not included in this crowd you might have a boring weekend studying, sleeping, and eating. I would encourage new students to make as many friends as you can on campus so that you are not lonely. Getting involved in activities on campus can also help you with having a "fun weekend". We have a lot of volunteer opportunities that arise on the weekend and it would behoove yourself and others if you participated.
The most awesome part is definitely the variety of people that you get to meet - students from all over the world, literally! It's really cool to meet all of the great academics and to experience their views, especially the overseas students, who bring their culture with them.
However, Fridays are definitely the worst part. Those that do drink, tend to do so on Thursday nights, so Friday mornings tend to be very... sober, if you pardon the pun.
