Was nice for dual enrolling, but I would not have attended if I were to have graduated high school before attending. It is an inexpensive option, though! Most of the faculty is super nice, understanding, and will work with their students.

Missouri State University- West Plains offers a wide array of degrees and fantastic professors to lead them. The advising corps is always fantastic and will do anything in their ability to help a student succeed. The campus encourages students to get on-campus jobs and the jobs are fantastic. The campus is relatively cheap and you cannot spend more money then you will make by getting a degree. The campus has a wide array of diversity from ethnicity to culture with students from all over the country and globe. The campus is well maintained by the grounds keeping staff. I have yet to have a professor who has not been willing to help me with any issues. The community is overwhelmingly supportive of the campus and it's students. The first week of campus is always full of amazing activities for students to take part of ans other activities are carried out through the semester. If you don't enjoy your time at this campus, you didn't properly immerse yourself.
Missouri State West Plains has become my second home. Everything about being on campus and in classes is a great experience. The professors are very helpful and always strive to make sure we do our best. The campus itself is very homey and offers lots of places to study, hang out, and be social. It's programs are very well organized and orderly. The dorm life is very enjoyable, being a dorm student myself. I enjoy the study rooms and the room set up. I am proud to call myself a student here and would recommend all freshmen to start here.
