Park University, established in 1875, is a private, nonprofit institution located in Parkville, Missouri, a tranquil town just minutes from the bustling urban center of Kansas City. The university's flagship campus, known for its historic Mackay Hall which exemplifies the Second Empire architectural style, sits atop a bluff overlooking the Missouri River. Park University offers a diverse range of academic programs, with notable emphasis on business administration, education, and social psychology, accommodating a variety of undergraduate and graduate students. The university practices a moderately selective admissions process. While Park University provides both traditional residential college experiences through on-campus housing and online learning opportunities, it does not boast a major athletic program that garners significant attention on a national stage.
