Columbia, Missouri

'''Columbia''' is a city of 115,276 people in the state (U.S. state) of Missouri. Founded in 1818 as the county seat of Boone County (Boone County, Missouri) and home to the University of Missouri, it is the principal municipality of the Columbia Metropolitan Area (Columbia, Missouri Metropolitan Area), the fourth most populous urban area in Missouri. As a college town, the city has a reputation for progressive politics, a high emphasis on education, powerful journalism, and public art. The tripartite establishment of Stephens College (1833), "Mizzou (University of Missouri)" (1839), and Columbia College (Columbia College (Columbia, Missouri)) (1851) has long made the city a center of education, culture, and athletic competition. These three schools surround Downtown Columbia (Downtown Columbia, Missouri) on the east, south, and north; at its center is the Avenue of the Columns, which connects Francis Quadrangle and Jesse Hall to the Boone County Courthouse (Boone County Courthouse (Columbia, Missouri)) and the City Hall (City Hall (Columbia, Missouri)). Originally agricultural, the cultivation of the mind is modern Columbia's chief economic concern. Never a major center of manufacturing, it also depends on healthcare, insurance, and technology businesses. Several companies—Shelter Insurance, Carfax, and Slackers CDs and Games among them—were all founded in the city. Cultural institutions include the State Historical Society of Missouri, the Museum of Art and Archaeology, and the annual True False Film Festival. The Missouri Tigers, the state's only NCAA Division I FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) program, play football at Faurot Field and basketball at Mizzou Arena as members of the Southeastern Conference.

The city is built upon the forested hills and rolling prairies of Mid-Missouri, near the Missouri River, where the Ozark Mountains (Ozarks) begin to transform into plain and savanna; limestone creates bluffs and glades while rain carves caves and springs which water the Hinkson, Roche Perche, and Petite Bonne Femme valleys. Surrounding the city, Rock Bridge State Park, Mark Twain National Forest, and Big Muddy National Fish and Wildlife Refuge form a greenbelt preserving sensitive and rare environments. The first humans were nomadic hunters who entered the area at least twelve-thousand years ago. Later, woodland tribes lived in villages along waterways and raised mounds (mound builders) in high places. The Osage (Osage Nation) and Missouria nations were expelled by the exploration of French (French people) traders and the rapid settlement of American (United States) pioneers. The latter arriving by the Boone's Lick Trail and hailing from the slave-owning culture of the Upland South, especially Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee, giving Boonslick the name Little Dixie (Little Dixie (Missouri)) during American Civil War. German, Irish, and other European immigrants soon joined. The modern populace is unusually diverse, over eight percent foreign-born. While White (White people) and Black (Black people) remain the largest ethnicities, Asian (Asian people)s are the third-largest group. The city has been called the "Athens of Missouri" or "Athens of the West," a reference to its classic (Classics) beauty, but is more tersely nicknamed "CoMo."
