Life in Columbia
Halfway between St. Louis and Kansas City, Columbia is the heart of mid-Missouri. The city is home to the University of Missouri (Mizzou), Columbia College and Stephens College. Columbia has been recognized by the Carnegie Foundation and Forbes as a great place to live.
Whether you enjoy the arts or the outdoors, Columbia has much to offer. The District is home to shops, bars and restaurants. Each year, the city hosts cultural events, including the Roots & Blues & BBQ Festival and the True/False Film Festival.
