College of the Ozarks, known as "Hard Work U," is more than a college. It's a destination with tons of family-friendly activities, including two museums, an old-fashioned grist mill, fruitcake and jelly kitchen, stained glass studio, and exquisite 4-star dining at Dobyns Dining Room in The Keeter Center. It's a great way to spend a day while you are in the Branson area. The only thing that requires admission is the Ralph Foster Museum ($6 Adults, $5 Seniors, and Free to all 18 and under). Dobyns Dining Room offers a farm to table experience without breaking the bank. Come learn why this unique college is nationally known.

This is a real treat. The young people here work for their education. The grounds are beautiful and well groomed. The Keeter Center is beautiful. The ice cream made by the students is amazing. Everyone who comes to Branson should stop here.

This is a beautiful college. What is so fascinating about it is that the students work their way through this college and are res[responsible for most of the upkeep...Wow!
