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.

Mizzou is fantastic, and the campus is just gorgeous! From the quad to Ellis Library to the football, you will be nearly breathless. The great thing about Missouri is that you experience every season. Freshman year was beautiful for me walking through campus during fall with the changing leaves, winter with the crisp, white snow, and then spring with the wonderful landscaping and blossoming flowers. The teachers and staff are very helpful and always ready to give you the one on one time you need. Even though it is a pretty large school, I have had classes of less than twenty kids which is great for a learning environment. Probably my favorite thing about Mizzou, though, is the abundance of extracurricular organizations. No matter what you niche you'll people just as passionate. GO TIGERS!

I studied International Business and it was great! The International Business program combines a bachelor's in Business Administration and a bachelor's in International Studies. It's great for people who are interested in business on an international level. However, you should seriously reconsider if foreign languages are not your thing. I wouldn't say this is the hardest of all majors (ie. Engineering, Math, Pre-Med), but it definitely is not easy. I managed to graduate in four years, but due to the number of requirements, many International Business majors graduate in five. You also get to study abroad, which is awesome! But, it can be quite expensive. If I could do it over again, I wouldn't change a thing.
