Most teachers care about you learning, however sometimes don't expect you to know much since we aren't at Mizzou I guess so that offends me esp considering I could have went to Mizzou if I wanted.

    There are some great professors, but some professors that are probably more interested in their research positions as opposed to teaching properly. The courses are challenging. There have been several problems with the cashiers, business, and financial aid office.

    A university right in the heart of Kansas City, UMKC is primarily a commuter school, though the dorms on campus are relatively new and nice, though somewhat pricey. There seems to constant adding-on, including the newest additions to the library, the new Bloch Business School building, and the fabulous Student Union, which is a great place to hang out. Professors and advisors in many departments are willing to help students succeed in the classroom and outside of it.

    I visited UMKC on their Preview Day in December, and found their staff to be truly interested in each student's goals for the upcoming years. I have been accepted for the fall semester, and I am looking forward to my time there.

    The student population at UMKC is very diverse. It's hit or miss when it comes to quality of professors; either incredible or horrible. The on-campus living could be better quality for how much we pay for it.

    UMKC is a really great campus to be on and there are a lot of resources you can use. You really have to get involved in order to feel like part of the school. The professors are very nice and are willing to help their students.

    If you live in the Kansas City area and are looking at a great school for a science/medical major then UMKC is a great option. Most students are commuters, which scare off a lot of students who want to meet new people; however, with the welcome week activities it is relatively easily to network and make new friends. You get the education of a large school with a smaller campus.

    For students wanting to use the college experience to get a well-rounded education and to have fun, safe experiences, UMKC is for you. At a lower cost than many other universities, UMKC provides awesome, interesting classes that can fit in anybody's busy schedule. When you have a study break or a weekend off, all you have to do is look at one of the many bulletin boards on campus and find out what fun, safe things you can do for cheap and sometimes even for free.
