5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My housing is extremely clean, organized and social. There are plenty of floor events to partake in and everyone is doing something. My favorite thing would have to be the size of the room. I got extremely lucky and was given a very spacious room, unlike any college dorm stereotypes.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Even though I have not apply for Financial Aid, many of my friends have and claim that it is great and easy to do so. The majority of their costs are covered and they make them eligible for other amenities on campus. For example, free tutoring.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus is overall accessible for all students and easy to get around. The atmosphere is clean and and well kept.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: We are one of the few schools in the country to have a government-funded LGBTQ resource center. This speaks volumes by letting our LGBTQ community know that they have a safe haven.

5 College Senior

Majors: The Missouri School of Journalism has a lot of expectations to live up to, and it exceeds them daily. Innovation in journalism is very important to the school, as we remain current, accurate, and a step ahead of other programs. The alumni network is huge and has graduates at every major outlet in the country. (It's oftentimes referred to as the Mizzou Mafia.)

4 College Senior

Majors: I've had four internships during my time at the University of Missouri. All of which I've gotten on my own, because of my interest area, however the Missouri School of Journalism is excellent about keeping students informed with available opportunities. I've had a great time at my internships because of the things I've learned at the University of Missouri.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: Nightlife starts Wednesday evenings at a local bar known for its weekly Wednesday event. Everyone goes out.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There are many options available to students that are both convenient and cost-effective.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: This university has offered me an endless amount of exposure to opportunities I wouldn't have gotten at any other school.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I am a student in one of the top journalism institutions in the country. The alumni network is very strong at major news outlets and is oftentimes referred to as the "Mizzou Mafia."

4 College Senior

Diversity: The University of Missouri has multiple resource centers on campus. There's a Black Culture Center, a government-funded LGBTQ resource center, a Women's Center, a Multicultural Center, and a Wellness Resource Center all housed on campus.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek Life makes up 25 percent of the University of Missouri campus. Basically everyone is Greek.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: The University of Missouri has top-of-the-line campus housing. Out of its 20+ residence halls, all but three of them have been renovated within the last 10 years. Many of which were renovated within the last five years. 70 percent of the residence halls are community style, and 30 percent are suite style options.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: The University of Missouri is great about implementing policies to keep its students safe while allowing them to have fun.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are little options in terms of off-campus dining. There are many fast food restaurants.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: For my experience, dining my first year was pretty good. The dorm I stayed in had a dining hall attached to it, so getting food in a pink was't very difficult. There are multiple dining halls that have late night options and they're ally pretty cheap with a dining plan, which in itself is expensive at around $3000 depending on which you get. There are options for students living and off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: This is a topic I don't know much about. I myself a bit of an introvert and definitely shy about most things. The friends I made in college actually approached me and initiated the friendship. The guys at Mizzou are like most guys at any college, they party, they have friends, they do sports. Mizzou is what you'd expect but certainly not boring or mundane. We're extraordinary.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: For internships it's really about what you make of it. Sometimes, a internship might have you clean the dishes or filing papers. But if you commit to it and put it all in to perspective and realize what it can do for you, you should be fine. Finding internships on your own can be a bit difficult, but some programs can place you into internships for you. It's all about finding them.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: In college, you always need to keep in mind getting into a program. That means being on top of grades, getting involved on campus because everything you do matters on an academic level. Furthering your education is the whole point of college. I'm only a college sophomore so at the end of this year, I'll be applying to enter the journalism program at Mizzou. I'm not worried however because I'm sure I can stay on top of my grades and complete all of the requirements, like anyone should.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Going to Mizzou is a great place to be a student, there is a palpable energy given off by the students and it's a great place to go because of that. There's tons of places to study and there's always something happening, in the student center, library, Speaker's Circle, Lowry Mall, etc. It's truly a great place to go as a student.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The classes and teachers at Mizzou are both really good. Even with GenEds you'll find teachers who are super passionate about the subjects they're teaching. I took a Harry Potter and Religion class and it was my favorite class that semester. Some classes can be large or rather large but it's all up to what you make of it. Overall, the school aspect at Mizzou is a really good one.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think a degree from any institution is valuable. However, I think having one from Mizzou is an excellent thing to say. People think great things when you say you graduated from Mizzou. It's a school whose namesake follows them. Regardless of what program you graduate from, coming from a fine school like Mizzou, career opportunities shouldn't be too hard to obtain.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The school is very open and there are all types of different types of people

4 College Junior

Greek Life: From my friend's reviews of their experiences I would say that Greek life is an amazing opportunity for those who are interested. The various houses do a lot of fundraising for partner schools in Africa, along with animal shelters. As a non-Greek I can honestly say my opinion of a Greek is solely based on how he or she acts.

Also, don't join if you're doing it just to stay with a friend from high school, I saw a few girls get hurt by this. If you don't think it's for you don't do it. If you want to go Greek then more power to you!

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown is literately right off campus, It's almost too convenient. You have a variety of sandwich places, pizza places, bars, and sushi places. There's even a place to get gyros, what more could you want? I've been to a few places that provide student discounts, it's usually chain places though. I love to walk downtown and fins new places to eat, my favorite is Kampai, but a campus favorite would be Hotbox Cookies, can't go wrong there.

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.
