Midwestern State University is a good school overall. There are a lot of opportunities on campus to get involved. 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. Midwestern State also encourages the all rounded education of its students as it requires each student to take classes outside of their major. The institution is also home to a variety of students from all over the world; it boasts students from the Caribbean, Africa, as well as Asia. Its diverse range of students encourages students to interact with cultures different from their own and encourages inclusivity and acceptance of everyone irregardless of their background.

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.
