Visit the College of the Ozarks
I know you are wondering why I am sending you back to school with a visit to the College of the Ozarks but go with it for a minute I promise it is so worth a visit! We fell in love with the College of the Ozarks during our visit. A couple of years later and I am still ordering the grits that the school produces at their mill. They are the best grits that I have found in all of my travels. We loved the campus and would go back in a second to spend an afternoon photographing the church and so much more.
Check out our full College of the Ozarks article to see why we fell in love with this campus.
