Missouri State University located in Springfield, Missouri is a public institution and the second largest university in the state by enrollment. MSU operates a fruit research station in Mountain Grove and is classified as a “master’s university” by the Carnegie Foundation. The school offers Study Away Programs for students wanting to travel internationally for academic credit for as long as a year or as little as a week. Civic engagement is offered through several school-based community service programs such as Bears Bringing Hope, which raises funds for victims of natural disasters.
This is a great school that focuses on Public Affairs. Everyone is very welcoming here and you do not have to be afraid to be yourself.

This university is very large, with approximately 23,000 students. But the instructors, students, and staff are all great, friendly people. Everybody is really nice and will help you if you get lost or just need help on an assignment.
