What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Missouri- Columbia is a great school to study at. All the teachers and staff do everything in their power to get you prepared for the real world and try and get you involved as much as possible. In just my first year as a student I have been exposed to numerous opportunities to help grow my resume, experiences, and education. One example includes pushing students to travel abroad and helping them with multiple scholarship’s so they can get the experience they deserve. Not only are they great at helping students pursue their goals, they are amazing at helping students financially get to where they dream of being. Personally, I was able to easily get help at the financial office when I struggled to financially keep up with the big costs of college. I was offered multiple resources to help me find money and not to forget their amazing staff in helping me become financially stable and able to pursue my education with less stress.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Missouri is my home. The size of the school ensures that any student will find friends wherever they look. With such a large school, students are bound to find new friends from diverse backgrounds. Every student will find a family away from home no matter who he or she may be. The clubs and organizations that the university offers bestows hope as well as confidence to all students that there is a place for everyone. Every student has the opportunity to be apart of something that he or she cares about. For anyone who may worry about there safety, there is no reason to worry at all. The University of Missouri staff as well as the students invest their time and energy into creating a safe and accepting atmosphere for everyone. There are free self defense classes for every student so that should there be a need to defend oneself, each student will have the skillset required to do so. The faculty of the University of Missouri are dedicated to success of every student. For every major there is an academic advisor who can assist with any questions or concerns a student might have. The teachers are consistent with their office hours and are always more than willing to help with any struggles that students have with understanding the topic of the class. The teachers demonstrate daily that they are qualified to be in their position; they delve into their respective subject and go above and beyond with their lectures, exceeding the textbook standards, and insuring that all students are able to learn. Regarding sports, most are not celebrated very enthusiastically. With that being said, basketball and football are two sports that are very popular at the University of Missouri. Although the football team is not known for being the best, many students step away from their homework and studying to cheer on their school and their football team. Basketball is the more popular of the two sports and part of this is due to the basketball team being fairly good in recent years. The basketball stadium is usually filled completely with hopeful fans. The spirit during those games is tangible as one half of the stadium is screaming “M-I-Z” and the other half responds with “Z-O-U”. Students celebrate enthusiastically every game day in hopes that their cheering with give the sports teams the motivation they need to perform their best.

This is an amazing school! If you are thinking about a relatively cheap school that has great atmosphere, great professors, students, and energetic crowds this is the college for you! There also may be a couple of parties thrown around here and there too!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall it's really a great school. The professors are knowledgeable and engaging, classes are always a good time. The campus is also great, plenty of little hidden spots to crack open a book (or take a nap,) I can almost guarantee that within your first few months here you'll find your special little place you go and hang out in-between classes. We're also in close proximity to downtown Columbia which is great whether you want to get some shopping done, grab a bite to eat, or even get a job off-campus, the downtown shops are ALWAYS hiring. There's just a positive vibe that you can always feel walking around campus, it's clear that everyone here really cares about those around them and wants the best for each-other.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Missouri has a great campus and wonderful staff who care about their students. In my time there I have not had a bad Professor, nor a bad experience with a class. Some classes have been pretty tough, but that is to be expected in college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a freshman at Mizzou. I am, also, a first generation student and a black female. I know my review/ response will be important to any person of color. Note: I am only one semester into my freshmen year. I always had a connection to Mizzou, my high school always toured (from St. Louis) and my brother graduated from here. The everyday culture is of like any school situation, of course its more freedom being in actual college. I have seen resources for me and my situation that have opened doors and exposed me to people who seemed to genuinely care of my well-being. Being a minority on campus, hasn't left me feeling too much out of place. Of course, people are grown up different, come from different area and have different views. But I have not personally experience any direct discrimination, but there are microaggressions, though. The black community is smaller, but has a bonded community, you just have to meet people who know people. The Black Culture Center & the 'Campus Activity Board' makes sure to offer things that any and everyone can partake in, that are actually fun. The facilities are a hit or miss, the school is old so. The newer dorms are very nice, but if you have un-clean people what would that matter. The education is, for the moment, very general (general classes), but are more of a hit-or-miss with the professor and the class chosen. The party culture of the campus can be as known as you want it to be, know one is forcing you to party taken in any activities. The amenities are very nice like the Rec and the Tiger Grotto, just have to figure time to actually go. Sports are very known, but not pushed upon you. Even if you are not a sports fan, you may get curious of all the excitement. The cons that I have heard from other people, who are transferring or dislike it here, are the size of the school, the atmosphere, the price and their lack of social skills.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I can only say great things about the University of Missouri. As a transfer student, I started out nervous and hesitant but those feelings were quickly replaced with feelings of happiness and belonging. With so many extra curricular activities to join, I really have started to feel like I fit in. People have taken me under their wing, and enabled me to genuinely be a part of our Mizzou community. The teachers I've encountered have been great. Even at a university with large class sizes, they seem readily available to help. The leaders of this campus make it a goal to provide every student with the resources they need to thrive in college as well as in life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Missouri (Mizzou, as we call it) is an exciting place to be. It is a large, bustling campus with a lot of passionate students. I enjoy the many resources on campus. If you need something, you probably won’t have to search very hard to find it. And the food is actually good!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its Ok. I have not been here long so I don't really have much of a solid opinion on anything here. It just seems like school, its hot and the dorm room always feels like im sitting in a freezer. It helps when coming in from outside when its really hot but its annoying when its cold out or you stay in. I got a cold because of this, and the foods eh. I eat at the same places every day so I cant really say much about all the restaurants it has.
