What Students Are Saying

3.69 Average Rating
Midwestern State has a very nice campus, small yet spread out, with well maintained buildings and lawns. The small class sizes give students a chance to connect with their professors. It was rated the best value in the nation among public universities by Consumer's Digest Magazine.
Richard from Highland Village, TX
I couldn't sum it up in 3 sentences. I love being a student at Midwestern State University! The class sizes are small, especially once you get really into your degree plan. I love being able to stop by my professors office and ask questions without having to wait long periods of time to see them. The campus is absolutely beautiful, with tons of green space for students to use for recreational purposes. The faculty and staff are wonderful and work very hard to help you with whatever you need. There are tons of job opportunities on campus ranging from student assistants, sales associates in the bookstore, to the fabulous tour guides in the welcome center. Also, there are over 100 groups, clubs, and organizations all around campus, so finding your perfect fit is easy. I hope you strongly consider becoming an MSU mustang, and make my university, yours!
