Will learn a lot
Several times I have scheduled college visits here. Everytime I found out exactly what I needed to learn for my upcoming year.
Will enjoy being here
The entire campus is beautiful and there are friendly faces willing to help everywhere you look.
Bang for the buck
College is expensive. There's nothing new about that. UCM balances a good college with small classes and lower prices than plenty of Missouri Universities.
Tips for prospective students
UCM has a college costs calculator. FIND SCHOLARSHIPS SOON AND APPLY TO ALL. If you need help, call or email them; they are quick to respond and will help you until you are satisfied.
Great for these types of students
Anyone from small hometowns or trying to get away from home without going to far. As well as anyone who can get passionate about their school.

Am learning a lot
I have learned a lot of new things during my freshman year. Most of the professors are very good at teaching and are willing to help you if you have questions.
Am enjoying being here
There are many activities and organizations on campus that you can become involved with. I strongly recommend becoming involved on campus because it is very fun and exciting.
Bang for the buck
I believe it is worth to pursue a degree here because the professors are great and it is a very supportive campus.
Tips for prospective students
I would strongly suggest any high school students attending any college to develop good study skills. I would also recommend becoming involved any way you can.
Great for these types of students
I think this would be a great college for students from rural communities and just about any type of student.

Took a campus visit a while back and it is just breathtaking. Very suitable if you dont want a very crouded campus and a bunch of people to deal with!
Tips for prospective students
Keep at least a 2.5 and half a solid 20+ ACT and you'll do just fine.
Academic Rigor
Again, solid GPA and ACT and you will do just fine.
Dorm Life
From what I've seen and heard, the dorms are the best in the area. All for good reason though!
Food and Dining
Plenty of places to eat on campus and 3 different meal choices in the tuition.
What to do for fun
They have a commons that is the greatest cause it has a lot of food shops and a piano for those musically inclined to play it well.

Am learning a lot
In the classes that would help me in my major I learn a lot, but the classes that have nothing to do with the major don't really help that much. In most of my classes I have TONS of notes of stuff that I've learned and in those classes I learn a lot.
Am enjoying being here
I love being on this campus. It's a quick and easy walk from place to place and nothing is really that far from where ever you are. The sporting events are a blast! And the teams are really good. I also love the Greek system. I have had many good experiences here so far.
Bang for the buck
This past summer about 3 different residence halls got ALL new furniture, including: xl beds and mattresses, desks, and chairs. The lofts that you can rent are really nice and easy to set up. The school plans on re-furnishing the rest of the residence halls in the next few years since the cost is high to re-furnish. The largest residence hall, the one I currently reside in, also just received a new alarm system that can detect almost anything to alert the residences. And the dining hall food isn't too shabby also. And the new fitness center is huge and has a lot more available than the current Multipurpose Building and it's soon to open.
Tips for prospective students
Take time to walk about the campus and just take it all in. It's nice to just walk around the campus on a nice day.

UCM is the best of both worlds. You get the small town feel and the feeling of a big campus all at once. The people are friendly, the classes and teachers are personal, and everyone is always more than willing to help.
Tips for prospective students
Definitely get to know your teachers on a more personal level. They will be more willing and flexible about any difficulties you have with assignments. All of your extra effort never goes unnoticed. You will find the most generous and down to earth faculty right here in Warrensburg.
Academic Rigor
UCM provides an academic setting that challenges you in ways that will help you succeed in the outside world. While of course there are the basic general education classes that everyone has to sit through, the classes more specific to your major/minor are the real reason to come to this school. Because the class sizes are smaller, the teachers get to know their students and know just how to challenge you in ways that help you grow rather than sitting mindlessly through dull classes.
Dorm Life
Dorm life can definitely make or break your college experience. My personal dorm experience has been within a ship with people with similar majors to my own. The dorms have nice furniture, clean bathrooms, and a safe and clean environment for academic studies. Choosing a ship was the best choice for me because everyone shares similar interests, but dorms with a mixture of majors brings together a crazy mix of people for you to hang with.
Food and Dining
Just like in any other campus, there are good food options and bad food options. There's always a salad bar and a sandwich station and of course you have to have your pizza. The Student Union offers you a selection of fast food options as well. It's easy to eat healthily, but of course it's easy not to as well. I definitely enjoy late night which offers anything from waffles to funnel cake fries, my personal favorite. There's never a day that I've gone hungry.
What to do for fun
UCM is in a small town, so there's the basic activities that any town can provide. For those who are over 21, there's always Pine Street with all the bars, but for those under 21 there's a movie theater, and of course the many late-night Walmart trips. On campus there's a bowling alley open daily, lots of activities put on by student organizations, and there's always awesome movies playing in the Student Union for free with the comfiest recliners you've experienced in your life. My friends and I would usually grab people on our floor to watch a movie and have our own little theme nights to keep ourselves entertained for free. There's always something to do!

In three sentences
it is a great place to live and to study. i have met lifelong friends here after only one semester. i could not imagine a better school for me.
Tips for prospective students
i recommend to work hard in high school and prepare for college. the teachers here will challenge you, but also help you along with your studies, and possibly after your graduation.
Academic Rigor
it has challenged me, yet i feel like, if you work hard, you can do really well here.
Dorm Life
great place to live. the dorms are nice and newly refurbished. campus housing here is very convenient and it takes less than 10 minutes to walk anywhere on campus.
Food and Dining
the food is great compared to campus dining at other schools. at every meal you get at least four or five options, and they have great classic food such as pizza and burgers.
What to do for fun
there are a lot of options of how to spend on'es free time. you could go to the gym with friends, go bowling in the union, or go to a coffee shop to study or hang out.
Bang for the buck
classes, food, and on-campus living is very affordable and offer a great deal. there probably isn't a better deal in the state.
Clubs and Activities
there are many opportunities to join intramural teams, bands, extracurricular groups, and the like. the only reason one isn't in a group is because they don't want to be.
Campus Safety
the entire campus feels like a community. the feeling of safety and peace dominates. there is also the safe team patrols that roam the campus, just in case something happens or a student does not want to walk back to their in the dorm at night.
