| Ahhh, COFO....what a hypocritical joke. First, theere'e the pretending to be "christ like" while the administration judges and condemns people. Take for instance the kid who committed suicide in the vice presidents garage because he was persecuted as a suspected homosexual. Then there's the Administrator Larry Cockrum who bought his PhD from a diploma mill and was kept on at full salary after being exposed. The professor who exposed him was unfairly terminated. Lets not forget the Dean of Students who spent all his time on witch hunts looking for gays and intoxicating substances while his own wife was whoring it up as a drunken slut all over town. That lead to a nice little divorce for the upstanding "christ like" washed up basketball player. Dont waste your time or money on this place. It will soon be exposed for what it truly is. There is a current audit and investigstive report being prepared for airing on a well known news show. |

| first of all the school is amazing, for the right person. Not everyone can come to this school. but it is great for the ideal kid. I love the school, but certain aspects do need some work. however....IF YOU FIND SOMETHINGS 'PERFECT' WALK AWAY. I do not honestly believe there will ever be a perfect school. because we as humans created school, and we are fallible. hence school systmes are too. This school may have its rough patches but ultimately, if you can do it, I would suggest it. administration needs a little work, but most people if your honest and sincere with them, they will be with you. The grounds are beutiful, but the buildings need some serious work. While the school is putting in nice facilities such as the keeter center, and McKibbens, as well as McDonald. They should definitly send their construction department to Jones, Pheiffer, and Burger Hall. They are NOT attractive in any way! and frankly the school has very nice things in those buildings that would be highly favorable to the public to know about, but not easily shown, because of the condition of the buildings. As well as the muesum, it has many amazing things in there and many many others things just waiting to be displayed, the building should be knocked down and replaced elsewhere with ideal directions, and more publication! the public enjoy it, half just dont know about it, or get lost trying to find it! As far as student activities, the school does a wonderful job supplying them. however they should generalize school trips. many people cant go on school trips simply because they are not 'part of that group', while several people, while active do not ever get the chance... due to 'the schools timing'. they should do a general senior trip for each gradueating class, to offer to any seniors who in their 4 years did not get to attend one of the schools many trip oppertunities. |
many things are great, some are not. overall though I think the school is beating the odds, and showing America that God can win in a school system.

To start out, I went to College of the Ozarks for a little over a year. I thought that I would do really well there because I am a very hard worker. However, when I was there working, people slacked off all the time. The first job that I got there was working at Edwards Mill. However, two weeks later I was transferred to the Keeter Center because the Dean of Work had made a mistake when arranging jobs for everyone. At the Keeter Center, the supervisors were awful. One man, who was a chef at the time, sexually harassed a young woman. Fortunately, I got transferred to a different work station. One thing that doesnâ€™t make sense is how some of the supervisors can slack off, but they give students a grade based on their work performance.|
The classes there are mixed, and what I mean by that is that there are great to crappie teachers that work there. The resources compared to other colleges are out dated. The library needs to be completely up-dated. During my time at the college I never once saw a brand new book in the library. To me the English and the Math departments seemed to be the stronger departments of the school.
The Living conditions there are not very good. Some of the womenâ€™s dorms are way too small--especially for two people to live in. The air conditioning units are awful. There is mold growing in them and wasp sometimes fly out of them in the summertime. I would also see small green centipedes crawling around on the floor.
My social life there wasnâ€™t very great because I was working, going to class, or studying all the time. There was not a whole lot of down time there compared to the school that I am going to now. The students who go there get pushed to the edge in the since that they donâ€™t get very many breaks, the food isnâ€™t very great, and they donâ€™t have a very good living condition.
The administration there is not very good. I had a harassment issue with someone, and ended up going to the Dean of Work, Dr. Dawe. He told me I wasnâ€™t using the term "harassment" right, and that he didnâ€™t want to get involved in the story, and that "there are two sides to every story." He later told me that he wouldnâ€™t penalize me that time for coming in. I have never been spoken down to like that before.
This school is very political and would not recommend it to any one. Even if you are the poorest kid on the earth, donâ€™t go to this school. I would rather be in debt, than go back to this corrupt school.
