As a local student, it has been a great experience going to my hometown’s college. It allows me to show new students the amazing things we can do in town. People come to me and ask questions about Clarksville that only a local could answer, and that has allowed me to make more friends. I’ve lived in Clarksville for 17 years and Ozarks has always been a big part of this community. I’ve been able to be involved with the many college activities throughout the years even before I entered the University. Going to school at the University of the Ozarks means being closer to home and my family, while opening doors to meet new people and friends.
