University of Missouri-Kansas City Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (10)
The University of Missouri-Kansas City does not fit a high school student's perception of a traditional college. There is not a college town dedicated to creating an atmosphere for students to enjoy. Rather, it is located near the heart of Kansas City. For this reason, I highly recommend that incoming students go there for it's resources and networking opportunities. The faculty at the school are very cooperative and will do there best to help you with your career. You should go there if you really want to get ahead in life because it's the college for people "going places".
This program offered very hands on learning and mentoring of the professors. Very happy to have attended this program. Teachers offered me advising, extra time for out of class assistance, answered emails promptly and went over and above to assist me with Grad School applications.
The University of Missouri- Kansas City sacrifices none of the qualities of education that you would expect from an institution in its price range. Set in a vibrant city, UMKC allows all of its students to experience both an on-campus and independent life. The student association works closely with the faculty of the university to bring a diverse range of extracurricular activities to the student body, ranging from interest clubs to volunteer opportunities. This passion for student success, and more importantly, willingness to listen to the needs and concerns of students awards UMKC with a priceless education at an affordable price tag.
UMKC offers students education with bright faculty. Unfortunately, the conservatory is in a stage of transition to a new campus and experiencing financial difficulties which has not been without effects on faculty/student morale and quality of facilities. All-in-all, I feel that I am moving on well trained.
University of Missouri is a great college. They offer variety of programs for students and they really care about their students. Most of the classes are small and the teachers are very helpful and wants students to succeed. If there is something that students are having trouble with, they can get help from tutors and they also have resources were you an go and get help. If you are a chemistry major, you can participate in undergraduate research. There are a lot of classes that are offered online which is also a great way to learn and do the work on your own time. They have great advisors that are ready to help students. If you live close to the college, you can stay home or they have great campus . I would definitely recommend UMKC to anyone looking for a great education with a low tuition cost.
I had a very good experience at UMKC and would recommend it to other students. Aside from the fact that is is difficult to attend UMKC as a person working full time I enjoyed my classes and formed great relationships with professors who have helped me a lot in my pursuit of graduate studies, Peace Corps and my future career in International Development.
I thought the geosciences department at UMKC leaves a lot to be desired. It focuses more on geology and geography then environmental science. Other than a small group of teachers, most are too focused on research to offer much career advice or class advice. Offer basic classes in soil, air and water sampling/monitoring and the HAZWOPER should be a required class.
I had a great time and I earned a degree that helped me get into a professional school.
UMKC has an amazing dual degree program and staff for business and tax law. However, student loans and interest are outrageous! I would avoid a general liberal arts degree that doesn't provide you with some specific skill that makes you employable. I would do what I can at a junior college first before going to a 4 year university. Study abroad- amazing and very formative experience to grow as a person. Learn a foreign language; Spanish is very useful in the US. Remember that college should be a great experience but you may want grades that get you into grad school.
Attending The Univ of Missouri was an excellent fit for me. The instructors were very helpful from the first day we walked on campus to the Annual Alumni Mgts we attend every year with the Dean.
I would do it again but begin my education career sooner.
Dream Big and Go For It !!!
