Missouri State University Reviews
Missouri State University provides a plethora of opportunities to its students including recreational, pre-professional, and social activities. We have excellent staff who really care about the students as people, not as numbers. Missouri State University is the second largest university in Missouri, and it has been growing rapidly in recent years. I have loved living in Springfield for the past two years. There are so many opportunities on and off campus. I have also worked on campus for one year with some incredible people who love what they do. I couldn't BEAR being anywhere else!
I have not been enrolled as a student at Missouri State University, since I am only a Senior in High school. However, I have been on a college visit and spoken with students and professors at this school. The campus is very nice, it is not too big, but not too small. I also really like the bear bus they have that can pick you up and drop you off at designated locations, it is very handy. MSU has also made efforts for safety, which is something I am very happy about. I can't wait to start school at Missouri State University Fall of 2019!
Missouri State University is large school with a small-community feel. The faculty genuinely care about your success, and there are limitless possibilities when it comes to extracurricular activities. Not to mention, it's much more affordable than comparable universities. I love my school and wouldn't have chosen to go anywhere else! GO BEARS!
