Kansas City, Missouri, has long had a reputation as a cow town. But while the city happily embraces that heritage, the city has rapidly been increasing in sophistication and cultural attractions in recent years. The result is a mid-sized city with a good cost of living, a small-town feel, and big-city attractions. 

Add the city's charms to its educational and career opportunities, and you have an ideal combination for college students and interns. Top schools within an hour of the metro include Kansas State, University of Missouri (Columbia and Kansas City), and Rockhurst. The largest employer in town is the federal government, including the Federal Reserve Bank, Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs, IRS, Social Security Administration, and Department of Agriculture.

Kansas City is also home to major hospitals (KU Med Center and St. Luke's), cancer and biochem research centers (Stowers Institute and Kaufman Foundation), financial services (American Century Investments), telecommunications (Sprint Nextel), creative companies (Hallmark and Crayola), agribusiness (Dairy Farmers of America), and manufacturing (Ford, General Motors, Harley-Davidson), just to name a few.

This diverse economy, combined with the friendly atmosphere and top-rated universities, make Kansas City a great place to complete your education or start your career.
