Nestled in the heart of the Ozarks, Springfield is the third largest city in Missouri and home to some 420,000 residents. Education is the cornerstone at all levels in the community of Springfield and Columbia College fits right in. Not only is Springfield's geographic location at the center of the country, but on more than a few occasions this town has found itself smack dab in the middle of history. From the Louisiana Purchase to the Civil War, from the railroad to the famous Route 66 - it all happened here and made Springfield what it is today.
