To be totally honest: this school is a clique. That's all it is. Just a bunch of cliques. The intense and overwhelming presence of the Greeks (especially if you live anywhere near Greek Town) is a huge part of establishing these cliques, but many are simply left-overs from high school. Just about 80% of the people that go here are from either Kansas City or St. Louis. This means that if you're from either of these places you are bound to see at least 20 or 30 people from your high school, some on a daily basis.

The campus is aesthetically nice, albeit a little to large and spread out. The football games are fun and there is some normal social life if you find the right people.

The academics are aimed at the majorities and there aren't very many degrees offered to people seeking something a little bit different. But then again, if you were looking for that you'd go somewhere else.

Basically, if you liked high school and think the Greek life is the sweetest idea you ever heard of - come to Mizzou!
