Missouri college students enjoy living in this proverbial ?Gateway to the West,' with its blend of Midwestern, Southern and Western flavors. Missouri is more than just a waypoint on the pioneer trail, however. Missouri is a lively state, with major cities including Kansas City and St. Louis, with cultural attractions on a par with any other American city of that size. Job opportunities are strong in Missouri, should you decide to stay after college is completed. Aerospace, food processing and light manufacturing predominate, and there are also opportunities in agriculture and mining. Whatever your long-term goals, starting your career with an education at a Missouri college is likely to be a great start.
