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!

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.

Campus Dining: I rarely ate on campus since I lived elsewhere, but I would typically eat at Plaza or The Mark depending on where I was at. I liked the grill at Mark Twain mainly because of the woman running it. She was always excited to talk to everyone in line, she would also share stories about her family. At plaza I would typically stick to the Deli area, unless they had something that caught my eye while walking in.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I prefer living off campus, mainly because I have yet to live on campus. My freshman year the school ran out of on caps living opportunities, but they helped me find a room in Tiger Diggs. Which was a lease through the school, but off campus. I enjoyed having my own bedroom, but not being completely alone. Cons of Tiger Diggs would be having to get a meal plan, and poor matching of roommates. Pros: full kitchen and furnished apartment, the bus pass and parking pass were included.

I'm living on east campus now and I really enjoy it. Pros: having a pet, no meal plan sucking up your money, parking lot behind the house, near downtown, affordable, and it's across the street from campus. Cons: There's no central air conditioning and there's a small kitchen.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: From what I've heard from friends, the process is rather simple but getting a hold of a person on the phone for help is rare. Myself, I did not qualify for financial aid so, I'm not sure how accurate this is.

5 College Junior

Facilities: The student center is outstanding! There are plenty of study spaces up stairs, places to grab a bite, plenty of tables (if you can make it there before 11:30) Plus, the Shack is a great place to catch up with friends while watching the game.

4 College Junior

Academics: The professors are very nice, they work with you to solve any problem you might have. From my experience the courses with the high numbers tend to have less work outside of the classroom, but more in the classroom. The only downside is walking to the psychology buildings on cold or rainy days.

4 College Junior

Academics: The variety is outstanding. I've met students who are studying all sorts of things.

5 College Junior

Majors: I declared my major prior to summer welcome, so I met with my advisor right away she helped me through creating a plan for my four years. I ran into a few problems with actually creating my schedules, but once I became familiar with the layout of both the website and campus I flew through the schedule creating process.

I think the grades in high school courses along with the standardized test scores are the most important criteria for admission. Along with a variety of types of classes and extra curricular activities.

4 College Junior

Majors: I am in love with psychology, it's my calling, although the advisors always seem "too busy." Office hours are cancelled a lot and the department is located in peace park. When the advisors work with you, it's magic. They make sure you have all the information, they answer all your questions to the best of their abilities, and provide their advice. They also have a Psy Chi and Psychology club, while I have not been able to make meetings due to scheduling difficulties, I know the program provides speakers and information about grad school.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors really want to see you succeed, so go visit them in office hours or ask questions in class. The class sizes obviously depend on the course number, higher the number, less students. Best piece of advice? Go to class, take notes, and pay attention.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The alumni network sends a lot of invitations for dinners and other networking opportunities, you'll receive them if you sign up for one of there programs. I personally like the True Tiger membership, for $25 I get networking opportunities along with the "beat" football shirts for a few home games, they hand out free food sometimes too.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There are a lot of students from different races, genders, religions, and sexualities which is great for a large university. There is a small amount of rudeness towards others mainly because the school attracts students who have never met someone outside their race before.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: It is a very diverse campus. The students are very accepting of these differences.

Off-Campus Housing: I live with my parents so I cannot provide a good review of off-campus housing.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Columbia is a nice place to raise a family, but students often get bored with the town after some time.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live at home so I would not know anything about campus housing.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't really party so I would not know. Students enjoy going downtown.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Learn as much as you can about loans. It can be pretty confusing.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Workload is not that bad and goes well with the pre med requirements.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I have not had an internship but will be required to have one for my major.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It is very easy to tell whether someone is Greek at Mizzou.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: They have created a new policy where smoking is banned on campus. However, you will find a couple students here and there disregarding the new rule. Though professors remind them of the policy it seems that they ultimately cannot do anything about it.

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.
