College of the Ozarks

My daughter is interested in checking this college out. We'd like to call and set up a tour while in the Branson area. How far a drive is it to this college? How much time should we allow? I know it's near Branson but wasn't sure. Do you hear good things about the college?

Oh wow! You lucky person!

The college is just south of downtown Branson. If you are on 65 Highway going South out of Branson, the first light you get to is by a Phillips 66 station (I think) and CountryMart store. If you turn right there you are less than a mile from the entrance to the college! They call it Hard Work U and the students have the chance to work off part of their tuition. It started out as a 2 year community college but is now a 4 year college. I wish I had checked it out before I ran out of money for my education. I had to wait a few years before I could go back to finish my Associates Degree (at 40 years of age). Oh well at least I did finish.

As far as time involved, you might want to call them and get an estimate from them. You will want to take the tour of the college - - it is beautiful and has many neat places in it including the Church which was brought over stone by stone from England I believe. The Ralph Foster Museum is wonderful (home of the Beverly Hillbillies car), and they also have a working Mill where they grind grain for various flours and cornmeals. Definitely worth the tour.

Good luck.
