    I am paying a lot less here than I would be at a California University, for the exact same education.

    One of the biggest things I can tell you about Missouri State is that it was the cheapest college on my prospective list of colleges, yet it was also the one with the most additional assets. I feel completely confident that I am receiving just as good of an education, if not a better one, than most of my other friends going to universities priced much higher than mine.

    Scholarships are hard to get even if you have great grades, unless you have a lot of extracurricular activities and volunteer experience. But, compared to many other colleges in Missouri, it is fairly cheap. The classes are rigorous but prepare you for your major, and most of the professors are great.

    Missouri State University is very much worth the price you pay. For the low expense, you get a tremendous experience and education. You can create lifelong friendships and engage in intellectually stimulating scholarly research during your time at MSU. The campus is beautiful and everyone is very friendly and helpful. Very much worth it.
