America’s Premier College Town

The Mid-Missouri PRSA Chapter is excited to welcome you to Columbia – truly America’s Premier College Town. Not only is Columbia a hub for innovation, a leader in parks and trails and home to simply outstanding food and beverage options, it’s vibrant journalism and academic community is second to none. 

With a population just over 100,000, Columbia is unique in being home to three top-tier institutions – the University of Missouri, Columbia College and Stephens College, as well as satellite campuses for many other colleges. Columbia is also home to network affiliates for CBS, ABC and NBC, a strong public relations sector, and a hub for athletics and sports marketing. The area is known for innovation and technology, too.
