Missouri State University - West Plains Reviews

My experience at Missouri State was fun, but not the best. I enjoyed the people, the schedules, and being close to home. I didn't enjoy the professors who counted me absent in the classes when I was there every time, except for when I was sick or had to travel. Some others failed me in my classes for no reason, I did my homework, took notes, and payed attention. My outlook on Missouri State University - West Plains is, they have their favorites. If your last name is one they don't know, or if you haven't put money into their college, they won't do much to help you. I also applied for the financial aid, they told me they had it all taken care of and I would not have to pay a dime for my first and second semesters, I received a letter saying I had to pay all of the dues by a certain time. I contacted the college and let them know I received letter. They did nothing about it, after they told me it was all payed for.

MU-WP is a very good school for either an inexpensive associate's degree, a place to go for 2 years before moving on to a 4-year university, or simply to obtain college duel credit. The classes offered are enjoyable and relatively inexpensive to take. The campus itself is not the greatest when it comes to the housing, but the classrooms and other buildings are well maintained and up to date. Overall, it's a great campus for specific kinds of people. All I can recommend them to do is improve the housing somewhat.
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.
