Midwestern is a great school for anyone looking for a small-knit college with smaller classrooms and social life. Since it is smaller compared to other big name schools, professors and advisors have more of a chance to give you individual help or guidance if needed. It's great! However, it can get boring since there isn't much to do in Wichita Falls.
Review Midwestern State University
Midwestern has great school spirit from nearly all students, including myself! The athletic department is very good and all of our teams (men and women) do fairly well considering our smaller size. Football games are the most popular, attracting the biggest crowds. There's always fun tailgating and pre-game football parties that get students hyped and involved. During homecoming week, MSU offers a whole week dedicated to fun games and themed activities for students from every department to participate in.
My freshman year was awesome and it was easy to make new friends and the hall director was really friendly and awesome! (Norma I love you lol). Then my sophomore year I moved into the apartments since we had to and I noticed that the hall director wouldn't enforce the rules on everyone for example, if he knew you and he liked you then he'd just give you a warning. Also he'd take the side of whoever came to him first I know plenty of people who've been accused and had to prove themselves innocent with the action of a legal system which is ridiculous. All in all Claudio is the worst part of living in the apartments but the apartments are beautiful and the maintenance men are always friendly and get their job done.
