Fun Facts

  • University of Missouri -- Columbia has a statue of former governor David R. Francis on campus, and students rub his nose to ensure they'll get an A on their next exam. However, the practice is so popular that the nose has been worn down to the point it needed to be replaced—several times!
  • The movie Animal House was supposed to be filmed at the University of Missouri -- Columbia, but the school's president declined permission after reading the script. Production moved to the University of Oregon, whose president had previously denied permission to a little film called The Graduate—a mistake he later realized and decided not to repeat.
