4.06 Average Rating
the university of missouri is fantastic. i wanted to go to a college that was outside of missouri, perhaps on a coast, but because of financial problems i was not able to do that. however, i consider having gone to university of missouri as one of the best things that has happened to me.

Mizzou has a beautiful campus, great tradition, academics, and campus-wide activities. There are so many different things to get involved with and things to do. Of course, attending college in Missouri isn't the most appealing, but MU has been a great choice for me.
