Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

The school is cleaned up very well. Everywhere on campus, you see maitenance and landscaping crews fixing up the place. The people are very friendly on campus, especially the staff. The school also has an affordable cost.


Alumnus - Grad Year 1999

Overall Rating

MSU was a great! If you're from a small town in MO, you'll meet a lot of people from Kansas City and St. Louis. And I hope that the tradition of bubbling the fountains is still around, even if the staff hates it. Go Greek - they do a lot of fun things and help out a lot of people!
