These include, numerous clubs, fraternities, sororities as well as athletics and the arts. Academically, Midwestern State is excellent and its different departments offer different opportunities for its students to get scholarships as they are posted in each department.

MSU is a great place to go to school, it's a big school in a small, military town so everyone is constantly rotating through. The professors are amazing, some more stringent than others. The student life in the town and on campus is great, there's always little events being put on by the town, MSU, and even different organizations. There is also plenty of apartments close to campus so you don't have to live on campus, plus there's a bus that goes to most complexes, some stores, and campus throughout the day so it's not an issue if you don't have a car.
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.
