place is okay. It has distinct advantages and disadvantages.
I transferred here from KU and this school solved
pretty much all of the problems of there. The
engineering school is a small jewel in this otherwise low-end
school. It is small and intimate, and the professors
actually care, not just about research, but their students.
It isn't that difficult, in fact quite easy for an
engineering school, then again I don't feel like I'm learning
all that much. This is because professors take their
time to teach you, rather than cram everything down your
throat all the time like they might at other schools.
This is both good and bad for different reasons.
Also class sizes are REALLY SMALL, this is good,
like the biggest engineering classes I've had have had like
15 people, no joke. Most have like 8 or
Don't bother with this place however if you're not
in a specialized school like engineering. The liberal arts
here are a joke, I mean they are anyway but
especially here. You won't learn a thing and I
promise you will not be challenged here at all.
Look at your classmates and you will see why.
what I've heard, also stay away from the law school.
It is considered quite low-end and you won't be
able to get a job as a lawyer with a
degree from here.
This school is extremely diverse and has
been taken over by the affirmative action black agenda.
It is easier to come out as gay than it
is to come out conservative here. One of the
few non-engineering classes I took here showed me how much
viewpoints that aren't extreme left are NOT accepted here.
Plus, this school has pretty much turned me into a
racist. I was fine with everyone before I came
here, and after dealing with tons of incredibly stupid and
well downright hateful people and their agenda, I've become less
accepting. There is also a huge radical muslim presence
here. There are also a ton of Indians and Chinese
and they are extremely friendly, actually most of the muslims
here are too. However it is mildly annoying when
you're in the computer labs and there are 60+ Indians
crowding a lab meant for 15 babbling at 100 mph
in 20 different languages when you're just trying to get
some work done in peace and quiet.
There aren't very
many greek people here, but they are just as mean
and snooty as anywhere else. I laugh at them
when they act like that, and tell them to go
to a real college. I've also met some really
nice greek people too, however.
There is basically no social
life here. Overall people are friendly, but they have
their own lives to live separate from college. Many
are working full time jobs with wife and kids.
They mostly commute from Lee's Summit and Blue Springs, with
a few from Johnson County on the KS side (UMKC
tuition for KS side suburbs is in-state plus a fee).
This school is okay, but don't bother if you're not
from KC area and don't have your own social life
because there is none here. Don't bother if you're
not going into a specific program that you love because
the academics here are as low as the public K-12
school district it's located in. I'm surprised anything here is
even accredited to be honest. I'm in a specific program
and have my own social life so I'm fine here
but the young freshman looking for the typical college experience
should look elsewhere.
