Fabulous food and great service by student wait staff. Lovely lodge dining room and great view off the back deck. Campus is serene and immaculately groomed.

Take the time to visit the College of the Ozarks. It is a unique school where all the students must work. They pay no tuition, and therefore are required to work while they attend. The campus is very nice and they have a lovely restaurant and gift shop to enjoy.

Very friendly student guides plus great food in the restaurant. The school setting is beautiful!! Their trips for veterans and students to WWII, Korea and Vietnam is a wonderful idea.

School of the Ozarks is an institution here in Branson. It is a college that uses work and experience as payment for a full college education. I have personally allowed internships for quite a few Of their students, and they have all been fine individuals, all with nothing but good things to say about their college experience.

Lots to see on campus. Nice Ozarkian museum, beautiful buildings, old grist mill, country store and the finest dining in Branson at Dobyns. Stroll over to Pointe Lookout, get your picture taken in the actual Beverly Hillbillies car in the museum. Wish there were more work for tuition campus around.

The campus is very clean and the service is outstanding. The college students work off their tuition and keep the campus beautiful. The dining options are impressive. It is well advised looking into sending a loved one to this college and being able to graduate debt free by working 15 hours a week.

I never thought going for a tour of a college would be so much fun. We nearly spent all day there. We went to the nursery where they grow their own food and herbs. The mill where they grind their own grains and you can buy flour, buckwheat, and oat bran milled by the students. In the same building you... More

First, I was amazed at the condition of the facility. It was so clean, and well maintained. Then to find out how this facility operates made it that much more impressive. I spoke with a few students about the facility and was blown away that I had never heard of this College until now. For those of you interested, it... More

C of O has a beautiful campus. The students work there to pay for their tuition. The Keeter Center on their campus is a great place to eat. The food is delicious!
