Mizzou is a great university for those looking to understand what they want to do in the real world. I came in knowing I wanted to go to the Business School but unsure of my major. After orientation, I was certain the dual degree in International Studies and Business Marketing was the right program for me. I studied abroad in Spain (best decision ever!) and decided to pick up a third Bachelor's degree in Spanish. I went through sorority rush and decided it was not for me. I made great friends in the dorms, from classes, and from friends of friends. Most of my friends were Greek and couldn't have cared less that I was not. Columbia is a friendly town with a great setting for Mizzou. Enjoy it while you're there!
“When people call Missouri the best journalism schoolQuite BrightJournalism
When people call Missouri the best journalism school in the world, they do it for a reason. You get real world experience and you truly figure out if this is what you want to do as a career. There is no messing around in the department, so be ready to work once you start working at the Missourian, KOMU or wherever your emphasis area puts you. A LOT of people drop out in the first couple of years which shows that it's not easy, but if you make it through, you feel quite accomplished and you are more than ready to get a good job straight out of college. I have stayed in Columbia to work, but my friends/peers have received jobs in New Orleans, Dallas, Washington, New York, Chicago, Tulsa and more, all straight out of Mizzou. Where else do you see that happening?
