Midwestern State University Reviews
Everyone at the school is very nice - students, faculty, ad staff. The professors are very willing to help you succeed, and the small class sizes afford them this opportunity. Even though the school is rather small, they still have many wonderful teachers that even have national awards and recognitions. It is easy to get involved on campus in many organizations. There is something for everyone. The campus itself is great! The dorms are modern and accommodating. The academic buildings have a beautiful antique facade, and the campus is small enough to be trekked in less than ten minutes! The school could be improved just by continuing to add more educational programs.
I love that MSU is now so close to where I live and has many options for online classes. This has kept tuition costs down and has saved me in gas! With their use of technology and the new campus they have made that is five minutes from my house, I can complete my bachelor's degree in education. What is even better is that they have partnered with NCTC, where I received my associate's degree, and all of my credits transferred. Every single one. Not worrying about that or having to retake classes has been such a relief. My professors have been stellar and the rest of the faculty and staff has been very friendly and accommodating, despite me being a distance learner!
MSU is a fantastic school in a great college town. The cost is very affordable, especially if you live off campus, there are a ton of rental houses available and some affordable apartment complexes as well. The student to professor ratio is excellent, and the professors genuinely care about the student's education. I spent 3 years here getting an Athletic Training degree and it really prepared me for life after college. I loved my time at MSU and would highly recommend it to anyone!
