Why KCOM?

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

Local Attractions and Day Trips

"West Winery in Macon is only 30 minutes away and a great escape from studying." - Amanda Saraf


"My favorite day trips are to Columbia, MO. There you can find shopping, a lot of different restaurants, and a fun night life. Since Columbia is only 90 miles away, it makes for a fun break from medical school."
- Amy Hina

"Hannibal is a fun place to see the Mississippi River as well as explore the Mark Twain Caves." - Andrew McFadden



"Thousand Hills State Park is a major perk to living in Kirksville. For those of us who like the country, the state park offers the opportunity to fish, canoe, swim, hike the trails, or just take the dog for a walk on a nice day." - Andee Wilson

"I love the Farmer’s Market each weekend for produce and fresh baked bread. The craft fair was another great event that showcased the local art talent." - Krystin Engelhardt
