Avoid Dean Hardscrabble

Ever since I saw the documentary on the animated world of monsters, I was so excited about entering their universe. I am so glad we lived in the enlightened time of realizing that there are multiple worlds of all types piled one on top of the other. I decided on this program for two reasons. I really wanted to try my hand at being terrifying and I wanted to see what it would feel like to be transformed into a cartoon.

The college life was pretty amazing. Monsters sure know how to party hard! They were also very welcoming of me since I didn't look like a human any more. I was even invited to participate in the annual Scare Games! They put me with Oozma Kappa, a fraternity that more than made up for their lack of scariness with their multitude of hidden talents.

While I thoroughly enjoyed my time and everything that I was learning, I will warn you about Dean Hardscrabble. You want to talk about terrifying? She is the definition of nightmare. She did go out of her way to make sure I was settling in comfortably, but she couldn't help sneaking up on my accidentally once in a while. I had to change more than one pair of pants, if you know what I mean.

Keep sharp eyes and ears out for her! The more the merrier, especially if you can get eyes on all sides of your head.

What would you improve about this program?
I would have liked more cross-cultural exchange. While I got to know the monster world, I didn't get to share my human world.

Great campus life & great academics

First off, I've got to say that campus life at MU is great! I rushed a sorority my first semester there (Go HSS!), and my sisters were there for me every step of the way. Moreover, it was such a thrill to be studying at a legendary institution like MU. They had a bunch of scaring techniques that we don't use at my school, so it was great to get an international perspective on the scaring industry. I only wish I could've stayed longer.

What would you improve about this program?
They could have provided more support for international students - I was pretty taken aback by the rigor of the scaring school.
