Campus Visit Notes for University of Missouri-Columbia
I took a tour of the campus and the Journalism school while my daughter was attending the Summer Media Workshop offered thru Mizzou Extension (good summer program). Tour guide was great, very friendly. We saw dorms, library, rec center, brand new student center. It's a very spread out campus but I loved the mix of old and new buildings. The adjacent town was great - -nice shopping and restaurants, not too big and not too small. We're from California and I loved just the mid-Western "down to earth" feel of campus and everyone I met.
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
Would highly recommend Hampton Inn (at Missouri Campus)

Flat Branch Brewery -- ate there twice. Excellent food and great beer.
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
I'm a movie buff and I did enjoy the quirkiness of Ragtag Cinema in Columbia.
