Missouri State University located in Springfield, Missouri is a public institution and the second largest university in the state by enrollment. MSU operates a fruit research station in Mountain Grove and is classified as a “master’s university” by the Carnegie Foundation. The school offers Study Away Programs for students wanting to travel internationally for academic credit for as long as a year or as little as a week. Civic engagement is offered through several school-based community service programs such as Bears Bringing Hope, which raises funds for victims of natural disasters.
The college provides excellent service in all that it gives and does for the students, including food/dining, extracurricular activities, volunteer opportunities, and how the class and professors interact with each student. It caters to doing the best it can for each student, despite financial and living capabilities. The students are also extremely helpful and are sure to give you advice or help if you ask about it, which is what mostly contributes to the homely feel that surrounds the Springfield campus of Missouri State University.
