Health & Safety: As I'm currently coming up on the end of my freshman year, I probably haven't been here long enough to really say for certain how safe I feel on campus. Likewise, there are multiple personal factors that one may have to take into consideration when evaluating my response, such as a natural impetuosity that may make me shortsighted to some of the fears I would or should normally feel in a given situation (my boyfriend's always grabbing my arm to keep me from crossing the street, not because I don't see the car, but because I'm thinking, "Meh, I can make that" without breaking pace).

On the other hand, I know that the police on campus are very protective of its students; you won't have a hard time finding someone who can testify to a ticket for not yielding to pedestrians at crosswalks, not keeping their average speed limit on the correct number, and not coming to complete stops at stop signs, even at 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning. And, although I've never had to use one, there are a good number of emergency call phones scattered around campus, including along the inside of campus, in the parking lots, and around the residence halls. These phones will immediately patch you to the campus police upon activation, and I've been told that you can hit up the phones even if you're scared for no apparent reason and just want someone to walk you back to your dorms.

Overall Experience: Even though it's only my second semester as a student here, I've had a very good experience with the courses I've taken and the professors I've taken them with, although I have heard complaints among the upper-level classmen. I believe that Missouri Western has an excellent and very knowledgeable assortment of Gen. Ed. professors, the quality of such which may decrease the more specialized you get with your courses and perhaps the greater the chance that they are insured with tenure is

Overall Experience: Being a largely blue-collar college, there's a wide variety of ways one can earn their keep on campus. Since I started as a student here, I've only held two jobs: Resident Hall desk assistant and classroom technician for the Instructional Media Center, both on campus jobs. I was a desk assistant only for a couple of months, but in that time I had made many lasting friendships inside my resident hall which is great, essential even, if you're a freshman just starting out. I didn't know many, if any, of my employers during this time, though - I was hired by a student assistant. I ended up quitting this job because I wasn't able to keep up with the late night hours and graveyard shifts.

On the other hand, I have thoroughly enjoyed my position in the IMC since the beginning. There aren't as many new people going in and out who would be willing to chill with you in the office, but the friendships you do make, however many or few, will be fairly tight and always welcoming, and this is including my bosses and my colleagues from other parts of the Instructional Media Center. The hours are a lot better though. With this job, I go in for about an hour between classes if I have breaks, and then for a couple of hours at the end of each day, although I can go virtually anywhere on campus so long as I have the work phone on my person in case we get a call asking for assistance. Furthermore, if there are no orders at any time and no one needing help, we can pull out any homework or whatever to work on at our desks (which have 2-3 moniters each) until we get off.

As for the pay, the minimum wage in Missouri is $7.65, which is 40 cents higher than that in Louisiana. You're allowed to work a maximum of 20 a week during school and up to 36-37 hours a week during school breaks. Also, I haven't had any deductions from paychecks, though I'm sure that varies depending on the student.

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere is awesome in the dorm that I live in, Vaselakos. My only complaint is that the showers don't drain well at all so be prepared to shower with sandals on.

3 College Student

Greek Life: The Greeks are pretty involved around campus, but I haven't looked into them. Everyone who I have heard talk about them say only positive things, and most of the one's who are involved say it's one of the best decision they've made in college.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Im not in the athletics. Im in the Marching band. the school spirit is very high .

Health & Safety: I personally feel safe on campus. I have heard other people talk about things being unsafe around campus but I have yet to experience any of it. I think with the campus police building being close to the dorms, there is little opportunity for crime to go unnoticed.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of my professors have been great. Most of the classes I want to take are on campus, with the exception of higher level physics courses. Class size is fairly small so the professors can be more personal with the students.

Overall Experience: Career prospects are good within the science departments. Several times a month the head of the chemistry department will go around asking if the students would be interested in a job opportunity in the field that was presented to him.

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus but I do spend a lot of time in the dorms. From my experience the dorms are not great place to call home. Too often have I heard about people doing drugs or getting drunk in the dorms and ruining everyone's night.

Greek Life: Personally, I am a non-Greek and do not plan to join Greek life anytime soon. From my experience the Greeks are arrogant athletes that care less about school and more about parties.

Athletics: The athletics on campus are mediocre at best. The football team is paid little attention and never have I been asked to attend a sporting event.

Overall Experience: My experience at Missouri Western has been okay. I have been able to experience many different culture and views because the campus has such a diverse student body. I do feel, however, that my interests are not always represented in the way that funding is used. For instance, a large amount of funding is being funneled into a new stadium while very little is being done to help a dorm building that is in shambles.
