Why you should consider UCM:
UCM is one of the few schools that is highly focused on promoting a diverse culture. From that, this small town gives you a big city atmosphere that fosters a challenging learning environment.

Why I came to Central Missouri:
I chose UCM because of the convenience that it offered me when taking classes. I really felt that finding a program that was classroom and on-line based gave me the best possible avenue to succeed.

Tips for high school juniors and seniors:
Going into your junior and senior year, try to formulate a game plan. Knowing what you want to study and having a list of schools that you are interested in will help you begin to make the transition from high school to college. Apply for as many scholarships as possible and make all of the deadlines because mom and dad will appreciate it when they get the bill.

I wish I would have known:
Wow! I say that to myself on a daily basis. Try to take advantage of the things that the university offers. While you are in school discovering yourself, remember to form lasting friendships and get involved.
