College is an unfortunate stepping stone for a corporate company or licensed job title. The truth is that I believe college has extended its learning experience far from what an actual degree requires. If you want a job in the arts. Just do what you love and start immediately. In the Internet age, you can be a writer or a comity graphed and you don't need four years of an education. Take some basic classes to understand business law, taxes and simple accounting. If you have a passion for the big degrees then you need to jump though the hoop of a 4 year minimum degree.
College was challenging in school, which really increased my organizational skills and discipline when it came to studying. It was really more of a social time, though. I met most of my now close friends and really grew as a person because I was immersed into so many different cultures.
I was concerned about going to such a large school but I ended up appreciating all the choices thy come from having a large school (with a large budget). I was able to make it feel "smaller" or more homey by getting to know other students in my major and joining student groups.
Mizzou is a great school located in a thriving and fun community. My experience both academically and personally was very positive. It is an affordable option for MANY different fields of study.
I loved my college experience. Mizzou has a nice mix of academics, sports and social activities. It's also in a good location geographically because it's close to Chicago, St. Louis and Kansas City.
Best Journalism school in the world!
While it's a big school, many of the departments are smaller, so you still get the feel of a small school. A lot of facilities have been recently updated, and the new dorms are very nice.
MU was a good college. I enjoyed my time there, and enjoyed the diversity of the people, beliefs, and activities offered, but it's also easy to get lost in the crowd. If I went back and did it all again, I think I would at least consider a smaller school with more reasonable tuition.
Great school, great academics and great athletics. Enjoyable experience
Mizzou was a great choice for an undergraduate education. The campus is beautiful, the staff/faculty is great, and Columbia is a fantastic little city with a vibrant culture. I feel that I received a very high level of education, and have no regrets about my choice.
