Over 99 percent of Missouri S&T faculty members hold the top degree awarded in their field, and they are trained to assist our first-year students with the adjustments required for success at the college level. To further assist first-year students, Missouri S&T provides resources outside the classroom like a counseling center, writing center and an exciting program called Learning Enhancement Across Disciplines (LEAD).

All together, these resources add up to undeniable

student success and a record-setting 88 percent retention rate from freshman to sophomore year. Missouri S&T also focuses on applying the knowledge dispensed in the classroom in the laboratory. Opportunities for undergraduate research abound, giving all students the chance to apply what they know to real-world situations. With more than $52 million in research awards and grants, students are able to practice putting principles to use and to develop a working knowledge of industry advancements.

campus living reslife.mst.edu

Living on campus is a great experience embraced by college campuses all over the nation. The benefits to students are undeniable. You can easily meet other students who are sharing the same changes and challenges as you. At Missouri S&T, there are several Learning Communities for students living in residential housing. These groups encourage learning outside of the classroom. They also open opportunities for peer mentoring. Living on campus has many proven benefits to students. Perhaps most important is the academic success of these students. Students living in residence halls consistently perform above the campus GPA average, and they are also more likely to stay enrolled at Missouri S&T, having a much lower drop-out rate.

ON-CAMPUS LIVING d The Quadrangle Complex – Composed of Holtman, Kelly, McAnerney and Farrar. d The Residential College – An all suite-style living community. d Thomas Jefferson Hall – Features community-style living options. d The Solar Village – By application only. d Nagogami Terrace Apartments – Typically reserved for transfer and non-traditional students.

OFF-CAMPUS LIVING Most students at Missouri S&T spend about two years living on-campus in university residence halls, residential colleges and even university-owned apartments. But when on-campus living requirements have been met, it is not unusual for students to begin searching the area for an apartment, condo or duplex to call their own. Many students seek out places like Collegiate Station, a studentcentered apartment complex. At Collegiate Station, you are within a short walk or bike ride to campus. You will also find yourself surrounded by other students who are living, working and studying, just like you. If you’re looking for something a little different, there are many off-campus living options in Rolla and the surrounding area. From houses with multiple rooms (and multiple roommates!) to singlebedroom apartments and duplexes, there is something to fit everyone’s personal living preferences. For help finding the right apartment for you, try contacting one of these local rental agencies: Collegiate Station at Rolla Apartments 900 Collegiate Blvd. Rolla, MO 65401 Tel: 573-458-5125 Investment Realty 1703 N.

Students at Missouri S&T have many options for getting hands-on learning. These opportunities take them all over the nation and world, as they learn to put their knowledge into practical use. Many S&T students participate in one of ten student design teams like the Solar Miner solar-powered vehicle, the Baja Team offroad buggy, or the Show-Me Solar House. Each team operates out of the Student Design and Experiential Learning Center, an on-campus facility that steps out of the normal classroom setting and engages students in a different, experiment-based form of learning. Students put the theories and concepts they have learned to practical use by building competitionready projects from the ground up. Students participate in everything from fundraising to oil changes, teaching them to be truly industry-ready engineers and business people. Other students choose to participate in one of the service learning student groups like Engineers Without Borders. These

students travel abroad to Central and South America helping rural and remote villages solve problems with unclean water supplies and poor sanitation systems. They are able to put their knowledge to use in a way that can truly change an entire community’s future.

welcome from the mayor rollacity.org

On behalf of the Rolla City Council and residents, welcome to Rolla, Missouri! Whether you are just passing through, relocating from another area or thinking about making Rolla your home, we’re glad you’re here. If you haven’t already noticed, friendliness is something you’ll find a lot of in our city, along with abundant recreational, cultural and educational opportunities. We have a saying in Rolla that the quality of life is high, but not the cost of living. Whether you’re looking for an array of outstanding restaurants, affordable lodging, theatrical productions or recreational opportunities, we have what you are looking for in Rolla! Couple all of this with top-rated public schools, a leading technological research university (Missouri University of Science and Technology), year-round community festivals, a Historic Walking Tour of Rolla and outstanding parks, and you’ll see why we are often recognized as one of the 100 Best Small Towns in America. Rolla also boasts a state-of-the-art recreation facility. The Centre — a 63,000-square-foot health and recreation complex — offers everything from a cutting-edge 4,000-square-foot fitness center to an amazing aquatic center, gymnasium, indoor walking track and recreational programs for the entire community to enjoy. During the hot summer months, the SplashZone offers a refreshing break for families. While some refer to Rolla as the foothills to the Ozarks — in particular the Mark Twain National Forest — there is much more to Rolla than our scenic rolling hills, highly sought after trout streams and abundant recreational opportunities on the Gasconade, Little Piney, Big Piney and Meramec Rivers. Phelps County, of which Rolla is the county seat, includes such diverse industries as Brewer Science, Inc., Mo-Sci, Inc., USGS, Wal-Mart Distribution Center, Mark Twain National Forest Headquarters, Royal Canin USA, Inc. and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. Missouri S&T is positioning itself as one of the nation’s top technological research universities. Phelps County also includes HyPoint Industrial Park and the new Missouri S&T Innovation Park where cutting-edge, high-tech industries are making Rolla their home. High quality medical facilities at Phelps County Regional Medical Center and St. John’s Clinic, together with an abundance of cultural opportunities at Castleman Hall (Missouri S&T’s 650-seat Performing Arts Center), the Ozark Actors Theatre and ArtsRolla!, are additional assets that make Rolla such a desirable place to live, work and play. For additional information regarding city services, recreational opportunities, cultural events, dining, lodging and shopping, be sure to visit our website at www.rollacity.org or on Rolla Channel 6. We’re glad you’re here! Sincerely, William S. Jenks, III Mayor of Rolla

community introduction Incorporated in 1861, the City of Rolla has come a long way from its humble beginnings as a major railway stop for the Frisco Line. Rolla is now a regional center of government, education, shopping, dining, culture and health care in South Central Missouri. Rolla’s small, rural setting provides a safe, cozy community located almost directly between the first and third largest cities in Missouri – St. Louis and Springfield. Rolla’s central location on Interstate 44 makes it the perfect stopping point for travelers, and it makes a quick weekend trip to larger metropolitan areas a breeze for students looking just to get away or spend a weekend shopping, visiting museums and going to concerts. Nestled in the Ozarks, Rolla is surrounded by the natural beauty unique to south-central Missouri. Rolling hills, country highways and spring-fed rivers make the area a perfect fit for any outdoor

activities - hunting, fishing, canoeing and swimming are among the local favorites. Rolla is also near the only United States national forest in Missouri, Mark Twain National Forest, which spans 1.5 million protected acres and provides an ideal location for hiking and camping excursions. Nearby Lane Springs and Meramec Spring Park are also extremely popular outdoor recreation areas. There’s plenty of entertainment to be had indoors as well. Rolla is home to the acclaimed Ozarks Actors Theatre, a summer stock theatre troop, and Leach Theatre, located in the Castleman Hall Performing Arts Center on the Missouri S&T campus, which features student-run productions throughout the year. A skating rink, bowling alley, movie theatre, mini-golf and go-cart complex and local wineries round out the entertainment options.

Most importantly, Rolla is a community focused on the students at Missouri S&T. From Opening Week festivities to the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, the Rolla community strives to make this a home away from home. Rolla also celebrated its 150th Anniversary during the Rolla Sesquicentennial Celebration on June 4, 2011, in downtown Rolla.

communityliving Building home and hearth in Rolla is a wise investment for multiple reasons. The city’s culture is enhanced by its proximity to Missouri S&T and the lush landscape of rolling green hills adds to the serenity and the adventurous, outdoorsy aspect of the community. Location is Rolla’s crown jewel–the vast majority of residents live within a 15-minute commute of their workplace. Housing for both renters and buyers is incredibly affordable in Rolla. The mean price in 2009 for a single-family detached home was $133,623, almost $50,000 less than the state mean price of $180,542. The mean price of townhouses and other attached units, $133,950, is about $40,000 less than the state mean price of $174,118. Despite these affordable prices, 53 percent of residents rent rather than own. The median gross rent in 2009 was very inexpensive at $554, making the city an ideal place for recent graduates and other young professionals. Source: www.city-data.com

The clinic opened in fall 2009, consolidating the services of three St. John’s Clinic facilities into one convenient, state-of-the-art center. Patients in Phelps, Pulaski, Dent, Crawford, Maries and Texas counties are afforded access to a wide range of physician specialties at the Rolla clinic, including family and internal medicine, general surgery, radiology, medical imaging, laboratory, cardiology, women’s health, urgent care and many others. More information is available online at www.stjohns.com. Rolla Family Clinic The Rolla Family Clinic (formerly Rolla Urgent Care) is a privatelyowned healthcare facility that has been part of the Rolla community since spring 2006. Due to the rising cost of urgent care co-pays, the demand by the Rolla community, the deficit of primary care providers and the continued need for after-hours medical care, the clinic has recently expanded its services to include primary care, walk-in care and after-hours care. Co-pays for all visits are available at primary care rates. New hours at the Rolla Family Clinic are from Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. For further information, visit www.rollaurgentcare.com.
