Instead of paying tuition, students at College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout, Mo., work at one of over 100 different on-campus jobs. The 1,000-acre campus has dairy, hog, and beef farms; a hotel; a fine dining restaurant; a farmers market; and much more. The cost to educate a student is approximately $18,000 a year, which is defrayed by students’ work, grants, scholarships, and donations and endowments to the school. The school doesn’t accept private or federal loans. In addition to a diploma, students graduate from college with a strong work ethic and real-world skills desirable to employers.
