UMKC Scribe Learns Kansas City Arrogance

Without offering a lecture, this really worthwhile & fun local college post offers an outside view of commonplace backhanded conversation starters.

Phrases I've Learned at UMKC as an Out-of-State Student

When I toured UMKC, I felt like I was in a cooler version of my hometown. I'm originally from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, which - contrary to prevailing ideas - is not a cowboy town, rural town with one exit on the interstate or part of the "Little House on the Prairie" series.

I thought that UMKC was a commuter campus. Shocked to know someone would come from out of state to attend there. And no, it is not all downtown. There is downtown, crossroads, and midtown, from north to south. The River Market is rightfully part of downtown.

Best Advice is to transfer to another University.

UMKC sucks and is looked down upon.

Pretty much equivalent to a community college.

A good rule of thumb for out of towners is that downtown Kansas City is equivalent to the circumference of Dana Park's ass.

As a migrant to th Kansas City area myself, I'd like to point out to Caroline that, in understanding the posts on this blog, she should remember that Kansas City offers so many opportunities for success that failure here makes the person who managed to fail especially bitter.

She hit the nail on the head--especially about people from St. Louis, but she's a little off on the definition of downtown.

I was shocked to find that 95% of male students at UMKC are effeminate homosexuals. I thought it was only about 70%.

Caroline, as a migrant to Kansas City myself, I would recommend you stay away from downtown Kansas City as it is a good place to get murdered.

Avoid the City water as it tastes like battery acid.

Buy extra sets of tires, tie-rods, ball bearings as they will be destroyed by the potholes.

Best advice is to transfer, as a UMKC degree is pretty worthless outside of Kansas City.

And yet every one of them turned you down when you offered them a glass of Sneaky Pete and an all expense paid trip to your trailer in Podunk. Weird.
