The “gorgeous campus” at the University of Missouri is filled with “a diverse group of students who are eager to learn and a staff that is eager to teach them.” The school is all about “learning while networking,” and the administration always has an ear to the students. “When we say there is a problem, it gets fixed,” one student says. Mizzou takes pride in tradition, which is to be found “in all aspects that involve the University name,” which makes for “a campus full of pride and spirit.”
Professors teach “comprehensive courses” and “are always available to answer a question”; “even with large classes they are very attentive to individuals.” “I’ve always had professors who have had a million ways to explain any given theory, problem, or question,” says a student. The school boasts one of the country’s best and most “intense” journalism schools (nursing is also a strong suit), and there are tons of “participation opportunities” for whatever area you choose to study. Classes may be hard, but “good grades are attainable.” In addition to the “quality” academics, the advising system is “great,” and Mizzou sets itself as a real model for its students: “It is always striving to achieve better, and not in just one specific category or area, but all around.” “I came into college undecided and wanted to have plenty of options and opportunities to decide on a major,” says a student of her reasoning for choosing Mizzou.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
