Student Reviews and Ratings for College of the Ozarks

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

I know 5 people who have attended this school. It has a fantastic program for high performance students who have no treasure hoard to pay for modern day tuition.However, like many religious institutions, CoO has a few arcane rules and policies. They lock up freshmen vehicles during the weekdays to indirectly cause them to study. They will expel students for the simple, qualitative suspicion of consuming alcohol. Everyone is afraid of simply posting a picture holding a disposable Solo cup on Facebook for fear of being accused. No proof needed. I understand that public image is everything to a Christian school but doing the just and reasonable thing will impress the right kind of people.

What a surprisingly fun stop on our tour of the Ozarks. Talking with college students working over their spring break, and learning that many of them would not have had the means to attend school and earn an advanced degree without the programming offered at College of the Ozarks (where students work off their tuition with on-campus jobs) was inspiring. Left us feeling as if young people really do know the value of hard work, provided they are given an opportunity to show what they can do!

I graduated in 1999. It was a great experience.If you are interested in working hard and learning, this may be a good college for you.The staff and faculty were supportive. I studied in the Netherlands for a semester with a partner college. I had an academic scholarship for room and board. It was intended for use at C of O, but they allowed me to use it while in the Netherlands. That was was very generous of them. One of the college administrators gave me $100 of his personal funds to help with my trip.C of O gave me a great start in my adult life.
