My son has been admitted to the Journalism School at Mizzou as a Walter Williams Scholar. He was awarded the George C. Brooks scholarship, and admitted to the Honors College as well. He is visiting Mizzou right now for the first time with his dad. He has also been admitted to the Walter Cronkite Journalism School at ASU, and to Barrett the Honors College, which has a wonderful reputation. ASU has offered him a full tuition scholarship. He visited ASU in December and was very impressed with the facilities, the infrastructure, the program, and the way they treated him.
The decision is very difficult because the colleges are complete opposites in terms of their style, location, history, etc.Their programs are both excellent. ASU = Downtown Phoenix campus, totally urban, contemporary, state of the art. Mizzou = Traditional classic campus, college town, rich history, big school spirit.
Could you please give us your candid opinion and point of view about both colleges and their journalism schools and honors colleges, and which one you think is better and why? My son needs to make a decision very soon. Any info will be very useful. Thank you!!
