After Missouri State University

The courses that I have taken are difficult courses, but the professors have been very helpful. The courses are harder than coursed I took in high school as dual credit through another university. I think the quality of the courses is very good. There are many courses available and a variety of times to take each one. I think the professors at MSU are wonderful! They are very knowledgeable and helpful. I think they care about us and want us to succeed. Many of my professors design their courses so I will have to work hard to meet the demand. I like that. I do not want a watered-down curriculum. I want to be challenged and MSU professors definitely challenge me.

I live in Hammons Hall and it is a great residence hall. It is a little higher than most of the other residence halls, but it is very nice. It is close to campus and the rooms are very nice. I live in a suite of four with a shared bathroom and kitchen area. It is easy to get into the residence hall of your choice. I like that Hammons is attached to Garst dining hall and it is very convenient to eat there. The entire campus is not spread out, so any residence hall will be fairly close to classes. I enjoyed living on campus my first year and I think everyone should have to learn to live with other people!

I was recruited to play ice hockey for Missouri State University. This school has been incredible since the day I got on campus. However, being an international student, the University has no scholarships available for me and does not supply any funds towards athletics. It has been very hard to pay for university so far. The only issue I have with the school is the way they handle international students like me. They recruited me to come play ice hockey but did not inform me that they had no scholarship funding for me. Other than this, the faculty is incredible. I have had a fantastic experience at Missouri State and I know I will be an incredible graduated scholar. However, I am in danger of dropping out because I can not afford university on my own. This has been a cause because of being ill prepared to come to Missouri State not knowing that I would not be eligible for scholarships.
