    If I were a prospective student looking at Missouri Southern, I would say to build a strong work ethic now because once you get here you are expected to perform at a university level. These professors want you to succeed but they aren't going to do the work for you. Make sure you work hard now and keep working hard because the pay off will be fantastic if you keep going.

    Make sure you apply for scholarships and grants. Also if you are living in a state bordering Missouri or live in Texas, you can get some kind of in state tuition discount, but you would have to check on specifics for that.

    To future prospective students: The moment I stepped foot onto the campus for a tour, I knew that this was the college for me. Not only did I get to see the beautiful campus, I also got to meet some of the staff. Let me tell you I have never met a group of people so willing to help. They truly care about their students, and you can clearly see it after speaking to them for only a few minutes. Tip #1: If you're looking for a party college, this is not the place for you. You'll have to drive to go to a decent party or a club. MSSU itself is a relatively calm campus. That is why I like it; you won't be kept awake because of some loud party. Tip #2: Take advantage of the education. You'll get a great education for an even greater price! The teachers here are always wanting you to succeed, so they will work with you. Tip #3: Go to campus activities. Not only do you have a great time, but you'll find yourself making new friends! Campus events range from bingo (prizes included) to movie showings. There's always something going on, and there's always something for everyone.

    Do take your professors up on the offer to get help outside class; it'll establish a good relationship with them, and they're knowledgeable about what they teach. Learn how to fix meals at home or in the dorm, because the food available really isn't good at all. Explore the campus, because there are all sorts of weird places you never knew about.
