Established in 1839, the University of Missouri is a public flagship and designated land-grant research university. MU is the state’s largest university by enrollment and the first public institution of higher learning created west of the Mississippi River. The University of Missouri is listed among the “Best Midwestern” colleges by The Princeton Review. MU owns the nation’s only university-owned TV network, KOMU, which is operated by the Missouri School of Journalism.
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.
