Student Reviews

Great! But could be better..
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The University of Missouri has incredible opportunities and cares about the well-being of the students. I have had the opportunity to take very interesting classes during my time here and have gained countless research experiences. I currently have two mentors for my program that are difficult to deal with- they like to micromanage and they expect a lot of responsibility...
