5 College Junior

Facilities: The professors are great. Some are harder than others but at a school like Ozarks when you are encouraged to push past your comfort zone and do the best you can, it's nice having a professor that is also a good friend. They have a great open door policy and are truly dedicated to the students success inside and outside of the classroom.

Facilities: Our Campus – The campus at the University is small but very pretty. However the gym is extremely old as well are the wooden and concrete bleachers. The floor has many dead spots and we have a lot of glitches with the score board and shot clock, the student center was recently improved with new couches and a larger tv. A new fitness center with a weight room and aerobics room was added which cost a lot of money resulting in a major tuition raise. The library is the nicest part of campus however not many students speed very much time there. The gym that is used very frequently is the most need renevation. The campus offers a variety of different activities from different ethnicities and genders. There are many functions that students have opportunities to attend.

Facilities: Everyone is so helpful and willing to show were to find books you need. They never make you wait. Love it.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: There are a bunch of academic programs available, more than any school that I know of. Even though there is much diversity here on campus, everyone gets along. Not only are the students nice, but the faculty is nice as well. The president, Dr. Niece, and his wife are the nicest people that I have met on this campus and the professors are all so friendly and willing to help the students succeed. The campus is close to all the buildings, the dorms, and the athletic fields. It's very convenient to walk around. The cafeteria food is not the best, but we have another place we can get food at the Eagles Nest. The Seay Student Center is the place where a lot of students hang out and where we can get out mail. Our bookstore is located here, too.

3 College Senior

Facilities: What is unique about our school is we have a small friendly environment. Since we are a small campus of about 700 students, it allows a student's experience here to be personal. For example, the President, Dr. Nice and his wife Sheree know everyone by name. There is an excellent sense of community. The academic programs are good and intensive, but do not offer much flexibility in smaller majors.

For most of the academic year, the University's campus is gorgeous. Trees and flowers are planted each season, and the lawn is maintained daily. The University of the Ozarks campus is aesthetically pleasing to the students, faculty, and staff. The facilities strive to be state-of-the-art. The Jones Learning Center, the Seay Student Center, and Student Support Services provide excellent places for students to get help with homework, hang out with friends, and get an occasional snack/meal. Basketball, cross country, soccer, softball, and tennis facilities at or near campus are furbished nicely with great equipment, excellent floors and fields, and accessible practice areas for athletes.

None of the facilities on campus are brand-new, but they are not so old that they already need repairs. The University's recent renovations include construction on the Seay Student Center, with office additions and a workout center for students. Robson Library is fairly new, and students have access to thousands upon thousands of books, along with hundreds of free databases to assist with the many research papers students will write during their four years at U of O. While the University does not have a lot for students to do on campus, students seem to have fun no matter what.

Traditions
  • Falstaff: Every year, a group of students gets together and creates a literary magazine of poetry, prose, photography, and artwork from other students on campus.
  • Family Weekend: Family Weekend is always one of the highlights of the year. It's a weekend of fun, food, entertainment, and relaxation, a time for students to have their family on campus and show them what Ozarks hospitality is all about. Family Weekend is typically scheduled for sometime around the beginning of October.
  • Freshman Orientation: All first-year freshmen go through the task of meeting teachers, new classmates, joining clubs, and basically learning everything there is to know about the University of the Ozarks. This experience is pretty exciting.
  • Project Poet: Every fall semester, students compete against one another in writing poetry. It's really fun and interesting what gets submitted and who wins in the end.
Urban Legends
  • The bottom of Walton Arts Center is haunted.
  • The chapel is very haunted, and there are some odd occurrences that happen in the building.
  • There is a little ghost girl haunting Walker Hall.
Favorite Things To Do
Students on campus love to hang out with friends. Whether they are hanging out with a specific organization, studying, or at someone's dorm/apartment, everyone has a good time. People also like to go out to eat, watch a movie, or go to another nearby city to have fun. On the weekends, students go to concerts or drive home to see their families, too. Also, there are some organizations that go on trips and hold special events to keep students entertained.
