I was recently made aware of a college in Missouri called College of the Ozarks, located right outside of Branson. The college's nickname is Hard Work U because the students pay NO tuition to attend -instead, they all have to work on campus. I attended a conference there and saw the student staff everywhere on campus (very few "adults" working except for professors). C of O has been recognized as a Top Comprehensive College by U.S. News & World Report yearly since 1989. It is an excellent place to receive a quality education debt-free. Their website is www.cofo.edu.
