Missouri State University - West Plains Reviews

I received my Associates of Arts in General Studies through Missouri State West Plains. Overall, I'm satisfied with the education that I received, though I think there were several things the college could improve on. The campus severely lacked parking spaces. If you didn't arrive ridiculously early, or you had an afternoon class, you were not going to find a spot to park. The teachers, while some were excellent, seemed uninterested in what they were doing and made no effort to communicate with their students. Other teachers refused to stay on topic, which is fine when your tests are based on books and coursework, but not good if they gave tests specifically on lectures, and didn't actually give the lecture. It's a good school for kids fresh out of high school, like I was, but I will not be returning here to pursue my Bachelor's degree.
Review Your College
It's only been two days, but I can already tell that the teachers here truly care about their students. The small class sizes allow for more direct and personalized attention. The campus is pretty with all buildings within walking distance. The Civic center, which is located right near campus, offers free admission to the large pool, sauna, workout room, and all shows and games that are held there. The only complaint would be the distance from any large cities and the limited number of degrees offered, however that is to be expected from such a small two year university. Overall, a very good school.
The Hst 122 class with Jason McCollum is different from other classes you have a lecture & written source to read in class then you're done. Overall it is a good and small class.

Mth 103 with Melinda Denton is a great class for any first year college student, she takes the time to work with you and allows you to work at your own pace within reason. The class is fairy large.

Pls 101 with Kathy Morrison is a great class that you will learn very valuable information in. The class is tough but if you take the time to work on it you'll have no problems.
