We are home to the main campus of the University of Missouri, which has helped earn the college town the nickname the "Athens of Missouri" in reference to the politically liberal leaning students who make up a majority of the population and have significant influence over this wonderful city. The economy has historically remained incredibly insulated due to the strength of education, health care and the insurance industry. The University remains the single largest employer.

Columbia has several leading favorites. Arts remain a city strength with venues including the Missouri Theatre Center for the Arts, Jesse Auditorium, the University of Missouri's Museum of Art and Archeology, "We Always Swing" Jazz Series, the Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival and the Ragtag Cinema's popular True/False Film Festival.
