The University really took me by the size and the quality. UMSL really takes care of its campus and that makes the environment of student culture thrive.
The University of Missouri-Saint Louis is an amazing school that welcomed me with open arms when I decided I wanted to transfer. I honestly thought that transfering to another university that was a little bigger than my previous university would be hard but everyone from my advisor to my professors to my friends made sure that my transition into the UMSL life was smooth.
My opinion of UMSL is that its a very open school with lots of cool people to become friends with and to hangout with, I know the on-campus housing is great and there's lots of freedom with it, as well as the off-campus housing. The teachers are very open and friend and available to help anytime.
I think that UMSL is a good place to go to school, it has its ups and downs but what school doesn't. The thing that I like the most about umsl is there are a lot of commuters so you don't really meet the same people everyday whether you want to or not. Also we have a subway on our campus and I really love subway and I really like the employees there, they are pretty nice.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for University of Missouri-St Louis is 70%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would tell myself to stop worrying. College used to scare me to death. How different would the teachers be? Will I know anyone? How will I know where to go? UMSL answered all the questions quickly. Our teachers are really helpful and deserved to be noticed. They are really caring and really understanding. People are very diverse and friendly. It didn't take long to make friends at all; UMSL students all empathize with eachother. UMSL was an easy transition; not on my part but because they are so helpful and have a "get going" attitude.
The worst thing about the University of Missouri St. Louis is that all the scholarships provided for the students from the school is very limited...There is little the school offers to it's admitted student with certain GPA's and ACT scores...I feel the school should try to make more of the variety when it comes to the requirements of some of there scholarships...
I think we're more known for the great programs we have. Theres just so many oppurrtunities to get involved in so many things and the residential life progrm is EXCELLENT!
My classmates are very welcoming, new and old. I feel like I belong at the school with the way they treat me.
I love our Honor's Program. We have smaller classes and everyone seems to know eachother. We all communicate together and help eachother on homework or projects. Our classes consist of discussion mainly which makes the class more interesting. We are literally not just be lectured; we actually get to participate and make our own contributions. Our professors are really informative and really creative when it comes to thier curriculum.
I consider the diversity the best thing at my school. Although it is diverse, at the same time everyone is included in one way or another.
Not many people are willing to do the best they can in their classes, they just give minimum effort although they are paying for these classes.
I wish that I had known how divided the students and faculty were from each other. There are many racial and status divides. People are even discriminated against if they have transferred from a community college (from where many of the University of Missouri students come ) to go to this school. The University of Missouri - St. Louis has so many different types of people from many different backgrounds, but it is amazing to see the seperation between individuals.
Someone who doesn't mind learning on their own. Also someone who either lives at home or doesn't mind spending a large amount of money for student housing.
There are 2 campuses. They differ in their academic specialties.
The kind of person that should not attend this school is the type of person who is undedicated, unfocused, or unmotivated. At this school instructors expect students to find out what the assingments are and to compleat them without incouragement from them. If a student falls behind it will be up to him or her to catch up and get on track again.
My overall opinion is that my school has great diversity in practically everything that one could think of. We have resident halls, apartments, parking garages, and the metro-link for all types of students. In addition, a typical school week is from Monday to Thursday with 75 minute classes. The only big complaint I have is that not a lot of students come out and support campus events.
I am a Junior Finance major and I think that the faculty are very personable. They care about your success and they want you to succeed. My major is a part of the College of Business Administration, which is one of top rated programs in the nation. My school always incorporates learning and gears students toward getting a job after college.
We have more commuter students than residential students. They are mostly commuter students because the vast majority of them are over the age of 23. Our average age of an undergraduate student is 26 years old.
I wouldn't call the residential houses as "dorms" since they have activities and learning communities available. Our newest addition, Oak Hall, has suites. Those suites have four individual rooms, one bathroom to share between the four people, and a hallway. The rooms in the suites are very spacious and they include a bed, a dresser, a desk, a closet, a microwave, and a refrigerator. A new addition to the policies this year is that residents who are 21 years of age and over can keep alcoholic beverages in the rooms, out of sight and the door must be closed when being used. They added this rule so that they could retain students who are of age and want to drink.
At the University of Missouri - St. Louis, we have very few classes on Fridays, while other campuses have classes on Fridays. This makes students lives a bit easier with school work and getting enough time to get involved. A lot of organizations have meetings on Fridays, making it easier for members to make it out for the meetings. There are also some mentoring groups who do most of their activities on Fridays. With that being said, the rest of the weekend is pretty flexible. Being a student who lives off campus, I try and schedule friend time on the weekends.
The food on my campus is your typical run-of-the-mill food. However, the food company has brought in Einsteins Bagels and a Subway onto our campus. They have even updated the residential dining hall by installing electronic menus and a texting system telling you when your food is ready. Our company is Sodexo and the staff are top-notch. They are improving our retention, in my opinion.
The only major sport teams on campus are Basketball and Baseball. We have "Pack the Stands" night at the Gym every January/February with give aways and prizes. Then, in March/April, we have "Bleacher Bash" at the Baseball Field with give-aways and prizes. We also have other sports on campus, but Basketball and Baseball are the only ones with events.
