Missouri Valley College Reviews
Coming here was the best decision I ever made! It is a nice little university where students are people rather than numbers and the professors are able to have one on one will all their students outside of class. The atmosphere here is amazing! The only thing that this place could use is some remodeling on the older dorm/housing establishments to make the college look more presentable. Other than that, Missouri Valley College is the best place to go if you are an athlete or someone who is considering a fine arts major!
My experience at Missouri Valley College is awesome. Being an incoming freshman coming from Texas it was hard to do that transition. But when I stepped foot on campus and started going to class the professors helped me so much. The professors were convienent and available and guided me to become successful in they're class. The atmosphere is great, everyone is kind and sweet and always has a smile on they're face no matter what time of the day it was. All the activities on campus were so fun and the community is very involved and we help the community a lot. I even joined a church and the church came to pick me and my teammates up and they became my second parents from home & they also helped me when I became really sick. Even home sick. I rate Missouri Valley College beyond the stars. If you're looking for a small college town, quiet,loving, with awesome spirit Missouri Valley College is the college to go to! I love it!
So far my college experience has been everything I pretty much expect coming from a year break for school altogether. Before I even thought about giving college a try, I continued to work at a small sub shop, making as much money as I could to support my mom and my little brother. I told myself that if I was to go to school, I would need to apply myself and prioritize grades and education over fun. And so my first year I kept my head in the books along with staying focused on the court as a team member of the varsity volleyball team, and I finished my first year with a 3.7 GPA. I feel because I’m out pretty much in the middle of nowhere, I can easily focus on what I need to do in order to graduate. There’s no city to explore or go out into, not much partying for me, and no overwhelming pressure from others to make wrong choices. As long as I continue to put school first and get that degree, I know the rest of my college experience will make me become successful in the future
