3 College Student

Transportation: Campus shuttles are great and included in tuition! They can also take you off campus to local grocery stores which is very convenient. Other then these shuttles there are no other means of transportation.

Off-Campus Dining: There are many of your normal food chains present. Nothing really that special, but a variety in what you would find in most towns.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Sometimes the printers are down at the worst possible times and the speed and reliability is not consistent.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Freshman workload is appropriate for discipline. There are many opportunities to form study groups. There are many options for extracurricular activities and the gym facility is exceptional. Job opportunities on campus are limited.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The classes have been great and the professors have been knowledgeable and easy to work with in regards to assignments and overall communication. The workload is appropriate. The registration process was not difficult.

College Senior

Athletics: I don't believe that the focus of college should be placed on athletics. There is far too many funds for athletics compared to those that are seeking a degree to participate productively in society. Athletes from this school will typically not go professional and the amount of time, effort, and money put into the athletics is appalling compared to the national prestige levels. There is far more to being an academic at this school than an athlete.

4 College Senior

Facilities: Overall great. I would like to see the eateries more spread out from the union though. In the beginning of each semester it is completely crowded and you can stand in line for an hour sometimes.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: I have never seen an issue on this campus with drugs.

4 College Senior

Academics: The academics are lead by a strong faculty. I believe that the price is very well adjusted for the mentoring and experiences you earn here.

2 College Senior

Majors: I have not yet done any internships in Springfield, Missouri. All of the internships are achieved on individual basis and not school sponsored.

5 College Senior

Majors: The geospatial science program here at Missouri State University is one of the best undergrad programs you will see in the country. I have only seen a few that can even come close to the bachelor's program here and those schools are completely over priced. The freedom to choose major electives to refine multiple paths inside your program.

4 College Senior

Transportation: Overall the city of Springfield, Missouri has pretty good bus routes. They even run a late night weekend route to help keep people off of the streets. There are two or three different taxi services available but no passenger train whatsoever.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I haven't had a lot of experience with dorm life as I am a transfer student but there is ample student housing on campus and the front desk is staffed 24 hours.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Missouri State University is a great experience for many students. Overall, the campus is really fun and always has activities going on. The classes are challenging, but spark many students' interests, many times in topics students normally wouldn't give a second thought. The classes definitely prepare students for their professions of choice and the real world, in general.

If students could have a "do over," many would take it in a second and go through freshman and sophomore years all over again. Not only is there knowledge gained in the classroom, but through "real life" experiences and student organizations, as well. The specific courses greatly prepare students for their future careers. Missouri State is so unique because the campus size itself is rather small, but there is a large amount of students (and a large amount of spirit).
