Moving Soon!

by tejas123 Online Now Feb 21, 2003 at 5:47 PM

I'll be moving to Columbia in about three months so I can start school at MU. Are there any suggestions for where you can get part-time work near the campus? Also, any suggestions for places to go or things to do on the weekends? Thanks!

    I can't help you with a job - though I know that there are many restaurants and bars in the college area that are always looking for help. Things to do on weekends: everything is about two hours away, and you'll need a car. There's good hiking, caving, and rafting in the Ozarks to the south. Try Meramec Springs state park near Rolla, and the Current River (for rafting) further to the south. For city things, Kansas City is 2 hours to the west, St. Louis is 2 hours to the east.

    If you're old enough, check out the great music at The Blue Note. I used to make the drive to shows there when I lived in eastern Kansas. Great acoustics!!
