What Students Are Saying

3.63 Average Rating
1) Live on campus (MOST DEF your first year!)
2) Get involved in clubs/sports/greek life/etc.
3) Challenge the status quo
Jasmine from Kansas City, MO
1-DO NO PROCASTINATE. Trust me, you will regret it. Its still college.
2-Seek help when in doubt. There is a math /science resource center and SI.
3-Just because you can find all your class material online doesn't mean not going to class. Attend as much as you possibly can.
4-Stay involved. Everyone needs something to do besides studying. Trust me, you'd go crazy just staying in your room.
5-Keep track of your grades, that way you can know if you need to pick up the pace, or you can relax.
Jerica from Florissant, MO
Live in the dorms first year and, if interested, apply for an RA position for paid housing and a great experience. The 113 steps of the stairs in front of the Student Union never get old; stay fit. Find a reliable buddy (preferably the same major) to help one another in classes. Always be prepared for rainy days or pure laziness to walk to the University Center Cafeteria. Check your email everyday!!
Julie from O Fallon, MO
Get involved and live on campus! You will have more fun, meet more people and stay focused!
Rosita from Saint Louis, MO
1. get involved with everything you can find!
2. meet new people every where you go! meet new people every day! Yes you are supposed to find you good group of friends, but new people introduce new things/ideas to you, that's what college us all about!
3. Don't get behind in your classes, DO NOT PROCRASTINATE! procrastination will only make it worse!
4. Always study for your first exams much more than you think you should! You never know how that teacher tests, so it is better to be over prepared than under prepared!
3. LIVE ON CAMPUS your first year especially. it is a great way to meet new people and stay involved with them.
Erika from Saint Charles, MO
Enjoy the school, there are many opportunities for you to meet new people so just have fun and keep your head in those books!
Charnell from Belleville, IL
For the incoming students I recommend learning how to balance a social life with your school life. It will also be a good idea to make friends with someone in your courses. I know that making friends have been a life changer for my grades, I say this because everyone obtain information differently and having two brains work together is better than one.
UMKC student
Take advantage of all the campus resources- the gym, the writing studio, tutors, etc.
Nat
Make sure you make a copy of every document you submit to the administration offices, they are horrible about keeping track of records and may say they've lost your information. Be prepared for a long arduous journey when working with them.
Kathryn from Lees Summit, MO
It is pricey, but well worth it. The dorms are bigger than most so keep that in consideration. The majors and programs here allow for several areas of emphasis. Don't be afraid to be very specific on what you want to do.
