The Keeter Center is unique from other Branson restaurants, as it is an integral part of College of the Ozarks Work Education Program. Also known as Hard Work U, provides the opportunity for full-time students to work at one of more than 120 campus workstations, in order to pay for their cost of education. By working 15 hours a week, student workers are earning their tuition and can graduate college debt free.

Some of the student workers at The Keeter Center are Culinary Arts or Hospitality majors, while others are earning degrees in other fields of study, such as Nursing, Education, Engineering, and Business Administration.
