5 College Senior

Health & Safety: The campus is safe and I feel confident that I am safe on campus. Campus police are very serious about making sure students are safe.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I am in the Nursing program and the pass rate of the NCLEX (Nursing Board Exam) is 98%. This means the program does an excellent job preparing student for the exam which is outstanding.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: Campus Housing was an excellent experience. I met so many friends and have maintained them. These friends became my support for everything related to navigating college and the Mizzou campus.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: I have been involved in Greek life and it has been a very rewarding experience. In addition to providing community service to our local community, we raise funds for charities such as St. Judes's Hospital.

5 College Senior

Athletics: University of Missouri - Columbia is in the SEC which is a very competitive. This makes the sports action very exciting.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I would recommend the University of Missouri - Columbia to any serious student. The University provides a great life experience preparing you for a professional career.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors here are knowledgeable, well organized, great teachers and student driven. They provide ample resources for their students and are always willing to meet during office hours. There are even extraordinary professors who go above and beyond to find you internships. Plus, there's a really great (and free) tutoring service available.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The alumni are there to help and have so many connections in the world. Mizzou really does open the doors to so many opportunities nationally, internationally and locally.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Last year was a little rough in terms of campus safety and lack of troubles, however, that being said, I still feel comfortable and safe at Mizzou. Unlike most places, I, as a female, feel okay walking alone, I don't have a fear of being pressured or assaulted randomly. Campus security is top notch and is always available, and in the event something does happen, there are resources, support teams and ways to feel protected and cared for.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a great tool for any freshman and one I'd strongly recommend. The FIG groups designed around your halls will show you how to get involved and offer specialized support, you'll make some of your lifelong friends from your hall and you really can't beat the distance to campus.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks are a huge role on campus- there are 30+ greek houses. Which is really great if you want to join and no big deal if you don't. Most people will recommend it due to the high social scene, community service and leadership opportunities- but there is plenty of that available outside Greek Life.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Everywhere you go in Columbia you see students, fans, parents, strangers all wearing those same two colors- black and gold. The amount of school spirit and support that's shown by the community is truly a unique component of Mizzou. Every football game and men's basketball game is packed! There are special clubs on campus that are specifically designed to support the varsity sports, there are intramural teams to join, and we have some truly amazing athletes on campus. Including the adapted sports like Wheelchair Basketball. Sports can become a part of the college experience for anyone at Mizzou.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Mizzou is so rich in tradition, it seems to carry its own culture. The campus is beyond beautiful and instantaneously catches your eye the second you set foot onto it. I love the high-spirited, rallied up student sections at our events. I love all of the opportunities for progression and advancement within your field of study- including research opportunities, study abroad trips, internships. Mizzou wants to give you the best quality education available while simultaneously giving you the traditional college experience. It's a fun loving, busy, studious, sociable, adventurous, involved campus- unlike anything else.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I didn't participate much in the athletics. There's plenty of school spirit and atheletic facilites are great, but I was never a part of the athletics scene.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are so many different people and things to do at this school because of its size. The dedication of the student organizations is great, as long as you find one that aligns with your beliefs and passion. I mostly chose Mizzou because it was the cheapest option with the most to offer, so I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. I've have a great time at Mizzou so far.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty cool at my university.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I feel as if my campus is very divided, especially after last year's events.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm scared that no matter what degree I get, it won't be enough to get me where I want to be.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm biased because of my life-long attachment to Mizzou.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Title IX has screwed people over in the investigation process and the security of campus is very loose

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love my dorm, personally, but not all the dorms are great.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being at Mizzou is a dream come true.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If you get a degree in something useful (not liberal arts) then you have many career options and it is very easy to get a job directly out of college. Because the school is so large there are many alumni in various different jobs and careers. It is also fairly easy to get internships while attending school at Mizzou

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: there are not even enough professors on campus for every class. the grading system is very flawed and inconsistent. the classes range from so big you cant even see into the classroom to you and five other people staring awkwardly at a struggling grad student. There are a large variety of classes, however you need to be in specific majors to even consider trying to get into the classes.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus itself is a very safe place to be. There is very little crime on campus. Security officers are always on call and are very friendly and helpful. however, if you go into Greek town or go to a frat party there is a very strong chance of crime, sexual assault, and/or rape. Also there are reports of shots fired in the downtown area very often.

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.
