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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

With a student population of around 30,000, there is something for everyone at Mizzou. The amount of available student organizations and opportunities across majors and interests is astounding. The food is surprisingly good for a college campus, but the offerings can get old if you frequent the same few dining halls. The huge student population may seem daunting at first, but it provides an opportunity to make so many new friends that share your same interests, which may not have been possible in high school. I will admit, the humidity in the warmer months is absolutely killer, but if you dress for the weather you should be able to escape with only mild sweat stains.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

First and foremost, University of Missouri - Columbia is a fantastic school for many reasons; academics, sports, Greek life, campus culture, and housing. On the other hand, University of Missouri - Columbia is very expensive. Average tuition is around $30,0000 a year. To some that is doable, but for my family and I - it is extremely hard to plan for. All in all, University of Missouri - Columbia (Mizzou) is a great school, BUT be prepared for the hefty price tag.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is really hard to dislike this university, I would think. Campus is so big and ther are al different types of people that you can meet and lots of organizations and clubs that you could join. Class sizes can sometimes be overwheleming but the professors are always willing to work with their students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Missouri has been affectionately known among me and my classmates as the "more-bang-for-your-buck" school. Students who apply themselves here are served a never-ending smorgasbord of academic, recreational, and professional opportunities. Upon completing my freshman year at Mizzou, I had been involved in two different undergraduate research projects, networked with top-tier employers at the college’s career fair, served at countless community outreach events, and garnered ample advice and support from guidance counselors and professors sufficient for the remainder of my academic journey at Mizzou. Going off to college is often nerve racking, but due to the gentle nudges I received from the welcome staff to join the recreational flag football team, I quickly made several of my life-long friends. I would recommend Mizzou to anyone looking for an affordable school that will leave you with an excellent education, a shining resume, and a college experience worthy to be called “the glory days”.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great school, would recommend it to others just be ready to be in the middle of no where. Went to the school during a very trying time for its community and the students involved so my view on the school is kind of skewed but that does not change my feel for it. The teachers are very intelligent but are not always the best explainers of things.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The American Midwest. To the modern and untrained eye, this expanse of forests, plateaus, bluffs, and fields may seem like wasted space, as if there is absolutely nothing to do. However, when the frontier of the Louisiana Purchase was acquiesced by Thomas Jefferson, the men and women of America saw this land as one thing: opportunity. This remains true for the American Midwest, due in part to the university that lies just 130 miles west of the Gateway to the West. The University of Missouri in Columbia is a truly magnificent school, with knowledgeable professors poised to assist you in your endeavor to achieve greatness, access to priceless materials to accelerate your learning, and a beautiful campus to boot. There is so much history within these hallowed walls, with a legacy that will last as long as the columns stand, and "Let them stand a thousand years" (Gideon Franklin Rothwell, 1892). This school is absolutely remarkable, and the friends and colleagues that you make here are irreplaceable. Come to Mizzou, bleed black and gold, and become a proud Tiger.
