What Students Are Saying

3.94 Average Rating
Understand that you are going to an extremely small school, take an overnight visit to campus and see if it is right for you.
Anna from Louisville, KY
Apply early and look into scholarships from the university as well as other sources. Look into applying for the Living-Learning Communities. These are residential halls geared towards grouping students of similar academic pursuits(i.e. business, fine arts, international studies) to create communities where students can provide acedemic support for one another. Also be sure to communicate well with your professors, a good relationship with your professors can help you reach greater academic heights as they will see just how serious you are about your education.
Tiffaney from North Las Vegas, NV
-APPLY EARLY! You will get the best scholarships this way!
-Visit campus! It is a beautiful campus, and meeting a few professors in your major will help your chances of admission!
Brandon from Round Lake, IL
The campus environment at MU is like a big family. It is very comfortable and welcoming here. Please give it a try!
Bryant from Forsyth, IL
If you are offered a spot in the honors program, go for it. It's challenging and fun, but won't stress you out or load you up with more work than you can handle. The interview is much less intimidating than you may think--just have fun with it, and enjoy the opportunity to meet some of your future professors!

Take advantage of visit days, go on tours, and stay overnight with a current student if you get the chance. This is a general tip for any school you might think about attending--find a place that feels like home, where you can see yourself living for four years.
Anon. from the South Suburbs
Definitely put your academics first. There will be plenty to do around campus, but it won't be nearly as fun if you're stressing out about classes all the time. You take out of college what you put into it. If you don't care and stay in your room 24/7, you won't take much out of it and probably won't have much fun. On the other hand, if you get involved with organizations galore, you will make plenty of new friends and have an amazing time.
Kristin from Springfield, IL
Don't bring a U-Haul on move-in day! The rooms aren't that big! Apply on time and stay in contact with your admission counselor! I was getting a lot of money from a different college, and called up my admin counselor, and while they couldn't match the money I was being offered, they gave me a little extra grant money.
Hilary from Des Plaines, IL
Take a visit before you decide and picture yourself living there. If you don't like where you are, it's hard to enjoy being there, regardless of classes or friends.
Meghan from Geneva, IL
Don't let the neighborhood and the cost drive you away! They work well with financial packages and have top-notch safety. A smaller campus community has a huge advantage. The professors actually care about their students, you get to know pretty much everyone, and the classes are smaller among other perks!
