Zack Martin is a junior  journalism major at MU. He is from Willow Springs, 15 minutes west of Mountain View. He has called the Ozarks home since he was 5, when he moved there from the northern part of the state. This article was written in response to a Missourian article published on July 2 about a group of friends' adjustment to college in West Plains, which is part of the American Next project.
