What Students Are Saying

3.63 Average Rating
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.
Kathryn from Lees Summit, MO
It is the in-between of a large university and a small university. The professors are amazing. The campus is basically Kansas City.
