What Students Are Saying

3.54 Average Rating
Missouri Southern State University is an excellent school to attend. I am a communication student at Southern and I have been offered countless opportunities. From studying abroad, and extra curricular activities to working in the Relations and Marketing office, I have gained so much experience in such a short amount of time!

MSSU is a wonderful university that has given me so many opportunities for my future. As a communications major, I have to frequently build connections with other and my classes have really taught me to socialize and network. I'm entering my last semester here and I know I am going to miss being on this campus and learning from such helpful and kind professors.
