Park University

Introduction

Park University, located in Parkville, Missouri, was founded as a small, private college affiliated with a local Missouri church in 1875. With land donated George Park, the founder of Parkville, Missouri, the college began as a great experiment. Initially, 上这所大学的学生只要在镇上的农场里劳动半天,就可以免学费, printing presses, and electrical shops. However, 这个实验最终失败了,学校又回到了更传统的教育结构.

Today, 帕克大学分布在全国各地,在美国有40多个不同的校园. 小型卫星校园大多位于军事基地或附近,因为朴大学专门为军人及其家属提供服务. Park大学的大部分学术课程都可以在网上找到, 许多学生甚至没有踏进校园就选择进入朴大学.

而这所学校最初与基督教长老会有关, 自那以后,它放弃了这种从属关系,主要关注与美国军方的关系. 朴大学是在2000年改名的,所以在10多年前才被称为朴大学.
