If your heart is set on the Midwest for your next relocation destination, there are plenty of great places available. One spot that may be at the forefront of your moving considerations is Missouri. The Show-Me State has plenty to do, and if you are looking for a destination to get a degree, there are many options at your disposal. The state is quite vast, and you could get a city that may fit your exact demands. If you think one of these may be the perfect location for you to pack up your moving boxes, then it may be the right time to speak with your moving company and schedule a date.

St. Louis
If you plan to head to the east of the state, it may be a good idea to consider St. Louis. The city is not only home to the iconic Gateway Arch, but it is also one of the areas of the state with quite a lot to do. This city is home to some esteemed universities, and you may feel right at home on one of the campuses in the city. Saint Louis University is one popular destination in the city, as well as Washington University. If you are looking for top-notch educational options, you may be happy that each of these schools are considered top-research schools. Having a wide array of activities, as well as some great places to learn may be a good mix when heading to a new area.

St. Louis University plays in NCAA Division I, and its nickname is the Billikens. The school participates in the Atlantic 10 Conference.

Kansas City
Another one of the Show-Me State's major cities, which is also a spot where you have multiple good educational destinations, is Kansas City. Located on the opposite side of the state from St. Louis, Kansas City is the home of the University of Missouri-Kansas City. This is the largest school in the city, and it also has NCAA Division I athletics for the sports fan. This school's nickname is the Kangaroos, and it plays in the Summit League.

There are also a number of smaller, private institutions. One of these is Avila University, while others include the Kansas City Art Institute and the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences.

About halfway across the state from St. Louis and Kansas City on Interstate 70 is Columbia. This city is also slightly north of the state's capital of Jefferson City, as well as the home of multiple colleges. One of these is the flagship school for the entire state, the University of Missouri. This institution is also a major research university. The school plays in the SEC, and its nickname is the Tigers.

While Missouri is the main educational fixture of the city, there are other schools here as well. This is the home of Stephens College, an all-women's school, as well as Columbia College.

Heading South on Interstate 44 from St. Louis will eventually bring you to Oklahoma, but a major stop on the way will bring you to another notable city with a sizable educational institution. Springfield is the home to Missouri State University, which is one of the largest schools in the state. This school is an NCAA Division I college, and the Bears play in the Missouri Valley Conference.

Springfield is also the home of a notable community college, so if you aren't yet committed to taking on a four-year university, it may not be a bad idea to check out Ozarks Technical Community College.
