A surprise deviation from the normal liberal collegiate environment with obvious conservative content. Great to see an opportunity for students to leave with a debt-free degree. Bravo!

What a pleasant surprise! It's worth the trip to eat at the Keeter Center and dine on food grown and raised at the school and served by students.fresh and delicious! There are also some interesting historical attractions and beautiful views!

Looking at colleges with our daughter. OMGosh this is an amazing campus! Beautiful hotel, restaurant (did not get the chance to eat) and grounds. They even have a museum on site, which we did go through. Coolest item was the car from The Beverly Hillbillies.

We ate lunch at the Keeter Center one day, expecting a good meal prepared by college students. We were astonished at the quality of the food, the atmosphere, and the service. I ordered the chicken fried chicken which was cooked to perfection. My husband had the roast beef and raved about the great flavor. We loved that meal so much... More

On Friday mornings College of the Ozarks hosts a farmers market. It starts at 7am and don't be late. Today we bought apple and cheese brats. We also got fresh corn and tomatoes.

I wish we were close enough for our kids to attend. This school does it right. The kids all must work for their keep as there is no tuition. Each student is assigned a work station. Young folks today sadly can't work like the good ole days, so this is an integral part of life education. The school is a... More

We toured this campus and learned all about it while riding the duck from the board walk area. It is so amazing to learn that the students work in all areas of this campus to keep it running. It also is home of a museum that houses the original Beverly hillbilly's car.

We did not eat here but drove around the campus. It does not even look like a college campus. A college that does not charg tuition, students have no loans, work hard learning all the while. Students we spoke with really enjoy this college. A Christian college has a lake called Honor Lake. There is also a beautiful veteran memorial.
