Missouri Western State University Reviews
I love the dorm where I live, and lots of the classes are absolutely amazing. (Lol like anywhere, some are super difficult or boring, but for the most part they are great). I have made amazing friends, and I have been involved in some awesome organizations on campus. Get involved with more than just your classes, and you will have a much better (and easier) college experience! The one thing that I loathe about the school is the meal plan. If you live on campus, you are required to have one, and it is a waste of money. Overall, I love the school. It is what you make of it though. If you don't invest yourself into it, you won't have the amazing experience that I have had.
Super good community everyone is nice, The dorms are really good for the price plus you only share a bathroom with 3 other people. The cafeteria has really good food all the time and there are several on-campus restaurants such as Starbucks, Einstein Bros Bagels, chick fil a, and a rotisserie for whatever you may be craving. The campus also has its own convenience store stocked with basic essentials such as toothpaste, toilet paper, and cleaning supplies. The college is within 15 min from best buy, rue 21, JC Pennys, Walmart, and other various shopping centers.
I love everything about Missouri Western State University I honestly did not think I could afford college. Missouri Western made that possible for me . I love how diverse the school is and how everyone has tons for school spirit. Missouri Western State University gave me chances I couldn't even dream about. I am the first chief justice of Student Government Association Missouri Western has ever seen and I couldn't have achieved this goal without the help and support of my fellow constituents at my school. I would love to see Missouri Western grow in enrollment that is a change I have been wanting to see. I hope I am chosen for this scholarship! Thanks for your time.
