    Missouri Western gives everyone an opportunity to excel in whatever major they choose. The campus has has a great atmosphere for college life, especially in the resident halls. The professors are always willing to help, no matter the problem or question, and want to see young individuals excel and become knowledgable in their major.

    MWSU was awesome for getting credits while still in high school. I really enjoyed everything they had to offer and what I was able to take out of the classes.

    I originally planned to go to Missouri Western because it was more affordable to pay out-of-state tuition there than to pay in-state tuition where I was. After I got there, Missouri Western broke the law by raising tuition on it's student's higher than the consumer price index during a tuition freeze mandated by the governor. After receiving punishment in the form of a budget cut, Missouri Western's fees skyrocketed (because that's technically not raising tuition) and instead of admitted fault, Missouri Western tried to turn the governor into a bad person when he was looking out for the student's and Missouri Western is the one who broke the law.
