What Students Are Saying

3.63 Average Rating
It is the in-between of a large university and a small university. The professors are amazing. The campus is basically Kansas City.
Julie from O Fallon, MO
I would give it a 4 star. They should make more meal plan options, but the campus itself is beautiful and the teachers are really easy to talk
