Greek Life: I never wanted to be a part of greek life until I started talking to girls that are in sororities. Not only do they throw great parties, but they also work together in order to do great things for the community. The big sisters truly want to help out the younger girls whether it be by giving great advice or spending extra time with you studying for an upcoming test.

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing can be very affordable. You get a lot of square footage for an affordable price in Springfield through local landlords. If you choose to rent from a complex affiliated with the University then you will have a higher price tag. There are a lot of places close to campus for rent.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There are great discounts for students. There are not a lot of options if you want to sit down somewhere and enjoy a nice dinner. Everyone rants about how good Andy's Frozen Custard is; however, I wasn't a huge fan of it.

Party Scene: Everyone I met at the fraternity parties was super nice and welcoming! There are always several parties going on so if you get bored at one party you can go to a different one. There are designated drivers for each fraternity. All you have to do is call them and they will send someone to pick you up and drop you back off at your dorm.

3 College Student

Administration: If alcohol is found in a dorm room, each student in the room has to pay a $1,000 fine. Although the campus is considered a dry campus, sororities and fraternities have houses that they rent out in order to throw big parties with alcohol. Students can get kicked out of classes if they are caught with alcohol more than once.

4 College Student

Scholarships: There is one application that you fill out for all of the scholarships. I had no clue that I was eligible for an out of state fee waiver scholarship until I received a letter in the mail saying that I had received it. It was a nice surprise!

4 College Student

Campus Food: There are tons of options for food! If you do not want to eat in the dining halls every day you can buy Boomer Bucks at the beginning of the semester and just swipe your student ID at any of the restaurants outside of the dining halls such as Starbucks, Panda Express, Papa John's, Subway, and Chick- Fil-A. If you have food allergies you can call the dining hall ahead of time or talk to the main chef and the kitchen staff will make you whatever you want. The only bad thing is the food isn't unlimited. You pay per meal at the beginning of the semester and each time you walk into the dining hall you have to swipe your student ID. You can only carry one item out of the dining hall.

Campus Housing: I got my first pick for housing which makes me very happy! Hammons House at Missouri State University is not one of the most social dorms; however, the amenities are great for the price you pay. I am able to live in a suite style dorm room as a freshman and am paying the same amount for housing as other colleges I looked at in high school. I share a bathroom, sink area, and kitchenette with just 3 other girls. I am able to park my car just a couple blocks away at an affordable price for the entire school year. There are two dining halls. One is right next to my dorm and the other one is just a couple blocks away. Both dining halls have pretty good food. The first week of school I barely went to the dining halls because there were so many events with free food. Overall, I am glad I chose to go to Missouri State!

Campus Food: Chick fil a has a speedy line and it's super tasty.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I don't plan to live of campuse so I don't know the process

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I've only to been one place

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't know party's are not my cup of tea

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I don't really know anything about them

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Most Scholarships have a minimal GPA so if you do not have the minimal you can't really apply for them

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: For the most part it is better then some other schools. You can chose what you what to eat so if one dining hall does not have anything that you want to eat you can check online before you go and see what the other dining halls are serving

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The rooms are on the small side sense there is not a closet to share with your roommate there are two armors so it takes up more space that can be used. There is also the problem of not being able to loft the beds so you can not storage as much underneath the beds as you would be able to if they were lofted.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: When some kind of crime does happen on campus, flyers are put up and every student is notified through email. There are a lot of security guards around and buildings are inaccessible to people who do not live there after certain times at night.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors work with you when you need help or flexibility. Registration is aggravating because classes fill up fast.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Students are friendly. There are a lot of different kinds of people

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food could be cooked better

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The cost of staying on campus is simply overrated! I am transferring next semester but if I was staying, I would definitely stay off campus. There is a variety of apartments, lofts, and duplexes fairly close to campus that are way nicer than every dorm on campus, more affordable, and more convenient.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I've ate at a couple of places that I've never heard of before, but for the most part, there's a ton of fast food chain restaurants near the main strip, fairly close to campus.

3 College Freshman

Administration: From what I've seen and heard, it varies based on which residence hall you are in. Some dorms are more strict than others.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not very much of a party person, but for the most part, Club Zan and Instinct are the best places to go on the weekend for a good time with your friends. Other than that, greeks are always throwing parties if there's nothing else going on.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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).
