A great place to live in the US (Find out more, here)

Established in 1839, the University of Missouri knows what it means to be first. We were the first public university west of the Mississippi River. We are home to the world’s first journalism school. We started the tradition of homecoming. As a flagship, land-grant institution and one of only 62 universities across the U.S. and Canada to be a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities, we are a campus where empathy, innovation, and hard work combine to solve the world’s grand challenges.

Our community of students, faculty, and staff enhances bovine reproduction, composes award-winning music and generates life-saving radioisotopes in the most powerful university research reactor in the country. We tackle diverse problems because Missouri is a diverse state – from the southern Ozarks to the northern plains. We are Mizzou, where Black and Gold run deep and Truman the Tiger embodies our bold spirit.
