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.

    UMKC is a great school for serious students that are seeking any major. The school is very diverse and mid-size which allows for you to see new people everyday as well as some of the same people. Most of the professors are very friendly and are always willing to aid you if you approach them.

    The diversity of University of Missouri-Kansas City is to die for! You make friends with new people almost everyday. There's a fair share of every ethnicity on this campus

    umkc has no much diversity, yet no one really taps into that. if everyone could just mix together and act like a family the school would be much better. the location is amazing though; the plaza is literally in walking distance.

    UMKC is in the heart of the city, so there's lots to do nearby. There are tons of on-campus resources available. Campus itself has a great atmosphere, although a little quiet on weekends.

    I am a six-year medical student, so this review will only pertain to my program: The rigor of the classes is not terribly difficult, but the volume is what gets to you. Some of the staff is very caring and very competent, but the majority lack at least one if not both of these aspects. However, this is the best path to become a doctor, I love my fellow classmates, and I would not give up my spot for the world.

    The program that I'm involved in (Conservatory) is fantastic. The faculty is clearly invested in our success. Overall, Greek life and Campus organized social events are few and far between.

    I absolutely love the campus and the professors. The class sizes are nice for both lectures and discussion sessions. It is big without making you feel like you aren't important.

    I have been at UMKC my entire college career and wouldn't have it any other way. This University has a unique blend of size and diversity that allows for a more intimate experience, but also allows you to meet many kinds of people from different places and backgrounds. Also, the location allows you to not only enjoy life as a college student, but also life as a big city resident.
