Where is the University? and where’s Missouri?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Missouri is a state in the United States Midwest Region, sometimes also called the Heartland for its warm-hearted culture and central location in the U.S..   The State shares its name with the ‘Missouri River’ which is the second longest river in North America. “The Smithsonian Bureau of American Ethnology states that Missouri means town of the large canoes. Other authorities say the original native American syllables (from which the word came) mean wooden canoe people, he of the big canoe, or river of the big canoes.” (statesymbolsusa.org)

 

Missouri’s biggest city is Kansas City, 3 hours away from New York by plane. With 92 State Parks and Historic sites, Missouri has a rich history and beautiful wildlife.

 

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876), a famous Mark Twain novel is based on the town in Missouri where Mark Twain was raised.
