I have really enjoyed my time here at Mississippi University for Women. It is a really nice campus and it is very diverse. I also enjoy going to social gatherings to support the different clubs and social groups. What I would have have to like the most about this campus are the cherry blossom trees. In the spring the cherry blossom trees on campus bloom to perfection. The only thing I would change or add on to are the selection of eateries or the lack there of, on campus. That's just for on campus though. On some days I would like to eat more than just Subway.
Review Mississippi University for Women
My experience at MUW is awesome. It's a campus friendly place where people don't mind helping others. I love my instructors. I can contact them at any time if I have a question or issue and they will be sure to respond. The classes are 30 students or less, therefore, the instructors know who you are by name and not by a number. I wouldn't pick no other university.
This is a wonderful institution where you can learn in a positive environment, mingle with other students, and further discover yourself.
