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 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.

    UMKC has the benefits of a traditional 4-year university, while enjoying the resources of the big city. Students get a terrific combination of high-quality education and real-world experiences through various collaborations. The university is a strong contributor to the Kansas City area through the conservatory, health sciences, and urban campus.

    UMKC has been my passport to success. The instructors are extremely supportive and every course I have taken has brought me one step closer to being the teacher that I want to be. I would highly recommend this university to anyone!

    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.
