The Host of Missouri Boys State

UCM's Hendricks Hall

Since 1953, The American Legion Boys State of Missouri has been hosted by the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg, Missouri. Boys State utilizes many of the resources of the university to include various classrooms for our schools of instruction, the sport complexes for athletics periods, Hendricks Hall Auditorium for general assemblies, and of course the dorm rooms to house the citizens and staff of Boys State. Attending The American Legion Boys State of Missouri is a great opportunity to get a taste of college life and a great place to do it.

The University of Central Missouri (formally Central Missouri State University) has over 150 career-building programs of study, over 11,000 graduate and undergraduate students living in a beautiful residental campus in a welcoming hometown community in the heartland of the United States.

Originally founded as a teacher's college in 1871, UCM has maintained its commitment to excellent teaching. Their average class size is 23 students. UCM's national recognized Department of Academic Enrichment exists to help students improve their academic success through a variety of classes and services. UCM's six-month job-placement rate for undergraduates is 94 percent, and, reflecting their excellent financial support packages, students benefit from one of the lowest student-debt ratios in the state.

Publicly supported, richly diverse in our people and programs, UCM offers a remarkable educational experience.
