Drury partnered with Cooper Robertson, a New York-based architecture and design firm, to develop the plan. Input was also sought from the university and Springfield communities.

Three more technical degree programs are available next fall for students enrolled at Ozarks Technical Community College Table Rock Campus.

This past summer, Missouri State University student Madeline Hayes embarked on a journey she would never forget.

She left the comforts of home to help those who are suffering in one of the world’s most dangerous cities – Mosul, Iraq.

A senior nursing major, Hayes spent a month in Mosul with Free Burma Rangers (FBR), a humanitarian service movement founded by David Eubank, a former U.S. Special Forces operative. FBR provides aid in the conflict areas of Burma, Iraq and Sudan.
