Heading home to Texas from Branson stopped here. Pretty campus with Farmer's Market produce and baked goods made by personable students. Enjoyed the cookies, cinnamom bread and fresh tomatoes.

You will love hearing the background of the college and don't miss dining in the restaurant. The food and service are excellent! The grounds can be toured and are very interesting.

My husband and I have driven out to the college many times. WE love the war exhibit, very interesting. We love the restaurant, food and service or great, not to mention the atmosphere. The kids all do a great job there. Everyone is so friendly!! And the ice cream, now that is a story in itself. Nothing like eating homemade... More

If you haven't been to this campus to visit, you will be surprised when you do go. This is "Hard Work U". Check out the Keeter Center, and their excellent dining. Or stay in the lodging, and experience their special "Breakfast in Bed" package, perfect for a honeymoon or special anniversary. http://www.keetercenter.edu/

We ate dinner at the Keeter Center and it was some excellent food for a reasonable price. The service was also excellent. I would highly recommend this to anyone in the area.

We drove through the campus on a Sunday, and maybe that is why it was empty, however it was very difficult to find any of the stores (nothing was marked as "open to public") and maybe on a weekday with more activity there it would of been easier to follow the crowds. We saw some people walking in to the... More

Went to the Keeter Center for lunch. Fresh farm to fork food grown and prepared at the college. Waiter was a student, as are all of the workers there. All students work at some job for the college, an interesting concept. The food was great. I wish I would have had room for dessert from their bakery or creamery, but... More

My wife and I at the Keeter Center for lunch. The dining room, as well as the whole Keeter Center for that matter, was very nice in establishing an elegant lodge atmosphere. It's not called Hard Work U. for nothing and all the students were busy serving and keeping the dining room clean and efficient. Our server, Cassie, was very... More
