Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

UMKC has both it's pros and cons, I can say however, the pros certainly outweigh the cons. The fact that UMKC is committed towards helping students succeed in a diversity rich and LGBTQI safe setting, in an urban environment is definitely a plus in my opinion. It has a beautiful campus just a jump away from places like the Nelson Atkins Art Museum, concert halls, Kansas City and the Plaza. It offers a wide variety of clubs and campus related activities and has a great Environmental and Geoscience program. The Cons are since it's a city campus parking can be hard to find, and also because it's in the city you have to worry a bit more about crime from non-student sources. Overall it's a great atmosphere with caring instructors and a nice, diverse and helpful student body.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2018

My grad program is online with just a few campus visits. This works well for me. My area of study is dental hygiene education, and UMKC is well know for producing quality educators.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

Offers great education in addition to being online, which allows for access for out of state students. Only have to attend campus twice for the program. School has program for part time students to pay in state tuition...a huge savings.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2017

I am actually in the satellite program for the UMKC School of Pharmacy, which allows me to stay on the University of Missouri's campus. I am so happy that I was able to stay in Columbia, where I did my undergrad, and still get all the benefits of being in pharmacy school! Most of my professors are in Kansas City, and we watch their lectures live and communicate with them from our own classrooms. The faculty members in Columbia are very supportive and truly have our best interests at heart! Although it may be more difficult to get to know our professors, I love being in this satellite program. Our classes are small, and with only 30 students, we have become a tight-knit group and are always there to help each other! Being in pharmacy school has made me a more confident person, and I feel that the material I am learning at UMKC will prepare me to be a competent and compassionate pharmacist!

Deciding to make the University of Missouri-Kansas City my new home was one of the best decisions of my life. The faculty and staff are extremely supportive and I cannot wait to start another year there.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2017

I attend the University of Missouri-Kansas City Satellite Program on the University of Missouri campus in Columbia, MO. Technology is a huge part of the program because most of our professors are in Kansas City and we must use telecom to watch them in our Columbia classrooms. So far, we seem to be learning very pertinent information for our careers as pharmacists, and the teachers are very supportive of our needs, even though we live in a different city!

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2015

The UMKC School of Dentistry is a great program offering clinical experience to students. They have a steady stream of patients that make it possible to get experience in a variety of case types. The faculty are, for the most part, great to work with and very supportive. One struggle that we face, however, as students is an inadequate number of specialized faculty to help us on tougher cases, which means that patients with difficult case types end up taking much longer to complete treatment than is reasonable. I do not think this is necessarily a unique problem to UMKC, and it shouldn't hinder progression toward graduation, but it is certainly something that could be addressed.
