Mississippi Valley State University Reviews
The school is amazing, I love the professors and unlike many schools tutoring can be provided by your professors also. Everyone is treated like family here and from the first day I stepped on campus I haven't been disappointed. I would recommend any eager to learn students to think about attending here, they will not regret it!
As an Alumni, Mississippi Valley provided me opportunity to be in a diverse yet close net social and educational environment that is conducive to exceptional teaching. My overall experience was great. I earned my degree in psychology and went on to pursue a masters in Educational psychology. I was encouraged by the professors to continue my education. They were willing to work with the students whatever the task may be,that gave me confidence. After graduating , I was able to obtain a job in my chosen field in less than 3 months. The campus is located in the delta, therefore it is a lot of space to roam and enjoy. Mississippi Valley has great band that are known for classical and showmanship. It is one of the youngest historically black
colleges in Mississippi.

At Valley its pretty much basic for campus life but the academics part is good. It could more diverse and have better food but they do what they can. The party scene is pretty much always be the same, predicable. But my friends and I try to make the best of it. I like the store around the campus because they do not close until 12 which is super awesome for us as students. As well as the Walmart that comes and take the students to Walmart, which is a God send because alot of students do not have cars or have gas money. But overall it would be better for the school to get the students more hyped about being in college and do something special for the good kids that never get in trouble.
