In-state and had a program I was interested in. Tuition was reasonable and I received financial aid from the institution. I knew people who went to school here and they liked it. The campus is really nice and there's a lot to do in the town.
For the most part, I like the course curriculum. There are a few required courses for some degree programs that seem a little silly and unnecessary, like bio 1020 for a journalism major. But for the most part, I think the curriculum is beneficial in building knowledge for the particular career.
It's a large school and coming from the Chicago area it's easy to get in-state tuition. I just had to stay there for a year (including the summer after my freshman year) work in the state of Missouri, get a Missouri drivers license and submit some forms.
The course curriculum seems to be pretty standard and effective. I suppose one difference between here and my friend who goes to the university of Illinois is he doesn't have to take a Microsoft Excel class as I do.
Scholarships/financial aid, I received tuition covered so I only had to take out like 5000$ in loans for my first year. And it was only about an hour and a half from my home town. Also, their programs at Mizzou are top rated.
Wonder, all professors have office hours and if you can?t make them for any reason you can always schedule an appointment with them. They are very flexible and understanding. I have not experienced a professor yet that is not willing to help their student if they are trying in the class.
I liked the campus and its little college town, it felt very homey. They also receive good reviews on several programs: Business, Journalism, TAM. So, going for a journalism degree I decided that it would be the best place for me. It was also fairly easy to receive in-state tuition.
The curriculum needs to be updated. Their journalism school is renowned as one of the best but it is clear the curriculum has not been updated in a long time. The current professors have experienced going through the exact same classes and projects. Being a strategic communications major under the journalism umbrella I have to take classes that are not relevant to me.
