    Missouri Western State University is the perfect school for any personality. The size is perfect and the diversity allows anyone to fit in. The affordability factor is huge for MWSU as well!

    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.
