For over 100 years, work and agriculture, as well as education, have been important at College of the Ozarks®. From its humble farm beginnings and early canning operations to today's student-run farms and student-produced smoked hams and other foods, "Hard Work U®," as the College is known, continues to serve the Ozarks in many ways.

Every part of your Dobyns dining experience includes work done by students, and products grown on campus.
