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.
