A college visit might not usually be on a traveler's must-do list, but the College of the Ozarks is unique. Nicknamed "Hard Work U," this college allows students to graduate debt-free if they work campus jobs while they attend. In addition to being an innovative educational institution, the campus also offers travelers a handful of interesting attractions, including the Ralph Foster Museum, which tells the history of the Ozarks, and Edwards Mill, which grinds whole-grain flour and meal that visitors can purchase.
Travelers highly recommend visitors try a meal at either Dobyns Dining Hall or the Keeter Center, saying that the food was delicious and the student employees were kind and professional. The homemade ice cream, made from the fresh milk at the on-campus W. Alton Jones Dairy, is another big hit among recent visitors.
The College of the Ozarks is located about 4 miles south of town. Visitors can find ample parking on campus. You can take yourself on a self-guided tour of the campus anytime. For more information on the College of the Ozarks and guided tours, visit the website.
