Tuition might be rising, but times appear to be good at Missouri colleges – at least in the St. Louis area. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that with Fall Semester only a couple of weeks away, Lindenwood University in St. Charles reports all but 100 of its 2,500 beds have been taken. Housing is even tighter at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, which has only 18 beds left unclaimed, out of the 1,500. Maryville University in St. Louis County has a waiting list for its first apartment style building, set to open this Fall.
