Why KCOM?

We asked our students why they like KCOM.  Here is what they have to say about . . .

Cost of Living

"Since medical students live off of loans, it is nice to live in an area where gas is among the cheapest in the country, housing is affordable, and the local farmer's market gives you cheap options to eat healthy."
- Andee Wilson

"The cost of living here is extremely low. I believe you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else where you get so much for the price."
- Michael Kabonic


"My apartment rent and utilities were reduced by half when I moved to Kirksville. Also, with everything in the near radius, I only have to fill up my gas tank once or twice per quarter. The cost of living in Kirksville is definitely student-friendly!" - Esther Rhee

"The cost of living in Kirksville takes a lot of pressure off of wondering how you are going to stretch your budget each month. It’s nice to know that you'll have a little extra spending money to use when you're not studying." - Krystin Engelhardt
