4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is much support in the community

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a wonderful welcoming committee that makes everyone feel like home in one way or another.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Although I feel safe, the school cannot control every person so bad things still do happen.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall my experience has been above average. I came here with this being my last choice of school but have made the best of it.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Although I am transferring, had I stayed I think my degree would have help me become successful in the future.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Was not my first choice but it has still gone well.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm involved and love it, great experience.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Haven't used the facilities very often.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Great school, not sure if it is the right fit for me.

Greek Life: I'm not involved with Greek life, but I have several friends who are and in general I don't care for the Greek life at Mizzou. I think the school would be just fine without fraternities and sororities. They seem to get a lot of attention from the school and appear to have an undue amount of influence. If finding friends is what you're concerned about, look for clubs where you can meet people of similar interests. If you're concerned about finding parties, talk to people and meet people who you can then network with to find parties that weekend. First semester freshman year it seemed like fraternities held a monopoly over social life at Mizzou, but it wasn't long until I realized that there is a lot to do and a lot of people to meet that have nothing to do with Greek life.

Athletics: I've had a really good experience with athletics at Mizzou. I played rugby in the spring and joined an intramural sand volleyball team just for fun. There are different levels of seriousness and many different sports so pretty much everyone should be able to find something they like to do whether it's for competition or for recreation.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've had a really good experience overall so far. I've been on a study abroad trip to Thailand already and I'm going on another one this summer to Italy for engineering. I've been able to get involved in different organizations and currently work two jobs on campus that allow me to pursue my interest while making some side money to go out a few evenings per week. There's a ton of athletic support also. I played a club sport in the spring, which was fairly demanding, but I also joined a sand volleyball intramural team which is just a lot of fun. I'm not in Greek life, but I have several friends who are and they seem to like it. I don't care much for the influence that Greek like has over the school, but it's not a huge deal. Basically, Mizzou is what you make of it. If you don't get involved and don't make an effort to meet people and find what you're interested in, you'll probably end up being very bored because the school doesn't pay too much attention to you since there are so many students. However, if you take advantage of the opportunities offered, it's a great experience.

Health & Safety: Campus security is very visible and in close proximity if needed. There are call boxes all over campus to access in case of an emergency.

Overall Experience: I have had no issue with my professors. I frequently stay after class to discuss the day's discussion and assignments. I have never felt like a professor did not have time for me or was not concerned about my situation.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am only a Freshman but I have already used the career center to start looking at potential internships in upcoming summer breaks.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The university is very good about pairing incoming students with other students in the same major. As a result you are on the same floor and in the same dorms as people you have classes with. They also have Learning Communities for each major or personal interest and choose housing based on those groupings. Very good process.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I went through formal recruitment and was accepted into the sorority of my choice. We do so many community outreach type activities that I am thankful and amazed to be a part of the Greek life at Mizzou. The sorority and fraternity houses are on opposite ends of campus and are very well kept and maintained.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The fan support is amazing! Football is the big attraction on campus and is very well attended by students, alumni and local people. I have learned that the other sports are just as impressive. The baseball team is nationally ranked, the gymnastics team and the girls volleyball team are both stellar. I try to attend as many sports functions as possible.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: By far my favorite experience at Mizzou has been experiencing my first homecoming. All the excitement on campus during the weeks leading up to homecoming was contagious. The whole experience gave me the opportunity to make lifelong friends and meet many new people in my sorority, our pairings and around campus. But I must say the best part was getting to be a part of the parade. Walking the parade route and witnessing the multitude of people supporting Mizzou was an amazing feeling. It made me realize I was a part of something bigger than myself. Mizzou history and traditions will be with me forever and homecoming is just one great example of how this tradition carries on.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school spirit at Mizzou is amazing! Everyone here is proud to be a Tiger! There is a such wide range of sports and events that students are sure to find something they are interested in.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It happens at every university. Doesn't mean it's ok, but don't let that be a factor in choosing your university.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: M-I-Z! Z-O-U! Be wise with choosing professors, always check RateMyProfessor.com.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Honestly, getting into certain job/internships can be pretty difficult depending on your major. Do not be discouraged. Keep applying and get as much practice/experience as you can.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: College Ave is the best hall! But when it comes to proximity, it's GOAT to live on Hollywood (Galena, Dogwood, Defoe).

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm on the outside looking in, so I'm not fully aware of what goes on. I do know that NPHC and IFC are two completely different worlds and processes.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
