William Jewell requires students to live on campus in the dorms all four years for several reasons. The main one being due to the vigorous nature of the academic programs at WJC. The faculty and staff of Jewell want to ensure that all of the students are successful, and therefore, living on campus puts all of the students near campus where they can easily have access to the resources provided for their academic success. Also, students are recommended to live on campus all four years because it allows them to have the true undergraduate experience, which is extremely rewarding! Only those who petition for health, financial, or other extreme reasons are permitted to live away from the campus. But trust me, living in the dormitories is beneficial, as you meet a lot of great people and it is extremely convenient!

There are a few really good places around campus. First you have your major food chains--steak and shake (a great place to go in the wee hours when you're still up working on an assignment), sonic (fun to go there for a happy hour route 44), and chili's and the like. Then you have more ethnic places. The Taj Mahal is an indian place on 291. It is absolutely delicious and the owner is super nice. They have an awesome lunch buffet special that ends around 2pm. Then you have Hunan Garden, a chinese restaurant that is super close to school. They also have an awesome lunch special for 6$ max and you get three entrees! Tasty Thai serves amazing pad thai and they have a pad thai tuesday special--buy one (10$ get one for 1$). I recently discovered Liberty Nutrition (across the street from Hunan)--they serve meal replacement shakes in various flavors. The shakes are super delicious and jewell students get a 1$ discount, making a shake + tea + shot of aloe amount to 5.50$. The owners are also really nice and eager to help. Mi Hacienda is a really good Mexican restuarant that is relatively cheap--about 8$ for a regular plate. Rico's Tacos is a delicious taco joint in Kansas City--they do 1$ tacos on Tuesdays!

I love Jewell. The only regret I have is a financial regret. Jewell is about $40,000 a year, which means you'd either be from a financially gifted family or you'd better have scholarships. I myself only have about half of what I need, so it's hard. Jewell is a wonderful school that will provide a wonderful experience. You are required to live on campus, which automatically gets you involved in student life and a new experience of being by yourself. I'm involved in the Liberty Symphony Orchestra, which is a mixture of student and local professionals. We put on a concert four times a year. It's amazing to be a part of it because you can gain experiencing and knowledge from professionals who have been at the game longer than you have. The ONLY PROBLEM I see is the financial standpoint! I love Jewell so much but I may have to leave to keep myself out of Debt for the rest of my life.
