Colleges and Universities in Missouri

Colleges and universities in Missouri have a lot to offer in terms of educational opportunities. The state itself, known for barbecue, beer and professional sports, is a good place to be for the college years and beyond. What more could a 20-something want? St. Louis has been ranked one of the top 100 places to live in the U.S., the 15th best city for young professionals, and one of the nation's best cities for singles. And, over the last decade, it's experienced a population boom in college-educated young adults.

Missouri's finance sector is also an area experiencing growth. According to 2010 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, mean earned wages for workers in some of the growing careers in Missouri were:

  1. Accountants and auditors: $59,980

In 1904, St. Louis hosted the World Fair, where innovations like the electrical outlet and plug, the electrical typewriter, and the ice cream cone first debuted.
