Midwestern State University is an average sized campus located in Wichita Falls, TX. My personal experience with this college has been pretty good thus far. The campus is small enough to get to classes easily. Also, the class size is smaller, so it gives a more intimate teaching setting. I like that everyone on campus is so approachable and knowledgeable of questions thrown their way. Diversity is one of the biggest things on campus. We have everything from German students to Caribbean students. One thing I like is that there are always so many cultural events to attend. The only thing I would change about this campus is that it becomes a ghost town on the weekends.

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.
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.
