It's friendly (not as friendly as the south, but still quite pleasant), it's cheap if you can get in-state tuition, Missouri employers like Mizzou grads, it has a good alumni base (including many of our top politicians), and for its size, Columbia is pretty fun. At the same time, Missouri is not known for its glamour. We're a state filled with people who wear sensible clothes and drive sensible cars. We drink Budweiser, wear lots of North Face, drive Ford Explorers, and cheer on the Tigers.
We have all types of course, but if you can't handle the thought of being around people like that, you might want to consider somewhere else:)
Hmm. . .good to know. I guess I'll have to visit with those things in mind (I do like Coors better than Budweiser though). The portability of the degree is a bit of a concern, but if it's possible to get my foot in the door at a good job, then I'd be less hesitant to enroll.
I have to admit that working in Missouri would sound a lot better if it weren't for all the damned Chiefs fans
Coors is acceptable. Had you said Miller, then we'd have issues. And, from what I understand (live in and went to UG in the STL area) Mizzou tends to get more students from STL than from KC (as likely to go to KU). Thus, more shitty Rams fans than obnoxious Chiefs fans.
