3 College Freshman

Transportation: airport only goes to two cities

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: People here are super normal. I love it. People are open minded and work hard but also down to have fun on the weekends. You can meet just about anybody. That's the beauty of a large school.

Off-Campus Dining: Again, do your research and Columbia and tons of great dining options. The best places you will hear about by word of mouth.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Getting around town is super easy if you have a car. If you don't have a car... get a car or make friends with someone who has a car.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is annoying, but there is plenty of it for a price. It is Missouri, not LA, so to some people rent seems slow, but as a college student $500 a month is a lot (and that is for a moderate place). If you do your research you should be able to pay less.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Having your laptop on your is essentially required, but there are lots of computers on campus available for student use.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: It's Missouri weather. It has a mind of it's own and you are going to get all kinds of extremes.

Parking: I hate parking. I currently park in the commuter lot that requires a bus to get to it and it is really annoying, but hopefully I will be in a closer lot next year.

Drug Safety: There is a lot of underage drinking, period. Whether or not you feel left out or not if you do not partake is dependent on your group of friends. Some people will judge you, others will not.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I could really use more financial aid, but the school overall is pretty generous and smooth in their process of awarding financial aid. Also, being able to get residency is fabulous for out of state students.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Diversity here is okay.... We have a good number of international students but the majority of the school is white. In terms of religion, sexual orientation and political beliefs we actually have a pretty diverse community. I have been able to have good conversations with people from a myriad of backgrounds.

Local Atmosphere: Columbia is a wonderful place to live. People here work hard but are super nice and understand how hard students are working. There's definitely a community here. Nightlife is also pretty vibrant. There's always something to do on the weekends.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My major (Journalism) is hard, but I really enjoy it for the most part. I know that I'm in a good program with a lot of connections and possibilities and I work hard to meet the standard. The workload is consistently pretty high, but in most of my classes, I want to do the work and do it well.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had an internship, but I would like to get one if I have time. I am concerned with internships based on what they pay... I need one that pays well to make up for the paid work time i would be missing.

2 College Sophomore

Academics: Being a journalism major at Mizzou is tough, but it will be well worth it in the end. People know that journalism students are intense and work really hard. We have to.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I don't feel like our campus is too strict. They know that student are going to do certain things and there are punishments if students are caught, but with the percentage of students who drink underage or use drugs, not too many get caught unless they are being extremely stupid with it. There are easy ways to hide it and not get caught.

Nightlife: I didn't go here for undergrad so I don't know anything about campus events really. I do know there are quite a few bars though and it can be really fun to go to those.

College Sophomore

Transportation: Again...I don't go on main campus/am not an undergrad so I don't really know. I live a 15 minute drive from my school building so I find a car very necessary. I do know there is some kind of bus system for campus but I've never used it since I do have a car.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: For the vet school I didn't really get any scholarships or anything but they tell you how much federal loans etc. I can get.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of bars and stores and a nice little downtown. Lots of restaurants. Seems like pretty much anything you could want you could probably find here.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Again, I don't know much about the main campus/undergrads. I know a lot drink, especially at tailgates during football season but I don't know anything about drug use.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I'm in the Veterinary school. I like it because it is it's own little campus and I don't have to go on main campus.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: It's really hard to get into veterinary school in general. MU's application process compared to others wasn't bad though. Get shadowing hours.

College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I don't go to undergrad here and really don't know what goes on on main campus

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I cannot wait to move off campus, bigger space for less than half the price!

Mizzou offers so much to its students that it is hard not to fall in love with the school. The school provides many internships through your major and different work-study opportunities dealing with specific career paths. The difficulty of the classes and the toughness of professors prepare students for work outside of school. MU is unique because it gives students so many opportunities; whether you would like to be a football star or a vet, it offers both and everything in between. 

If students had to go back and redo their college application process all over again, Mizzou would still end up being many students' choice. MU offers students a lot of opportunities to advance their career paths, minds, and friendship circles. The school has provided students with everlasting experiences and knowledge.
