Am learning a lot
I am learning so much in my online business class as well as my business math class, for the first time in my life I actually understand simple math. The teachers are great and really want to help you succeed.
Am enjoying being here
Being a grizzly is so much fun. There are so many opportunities for students on campus from getting into games and events for free, to all the computers on campus and all the welcome week activities really get you involved, you meet people, eat, play games, it's just fun!
Bang for the buck
This is a very economical college. I am going using my A+ and a scholarship I received, but there are others going here, middle aged people who are taking classes because it is so affordable. You get a lot for your money really!
Tips for prospective students
If you are a local thinking oh I don't want to stay in town, it's not a fancy college, or it will be boring, then you are dead wrong. It is a great campus, so many opportunities, and a global campus, I have met students from Turkey, Washington D.C., Russia, just all over!
Great for these types of students
Great for fresh out of high school students, men and women just out of basic training for any of the armed forces, great for late in life adult learners. It's great for all, trust me!

Am learning a lot
With the classes being so small the teachers are able to get to each of you and help you with your individual needs. I have had great tutoring here also! They're always available.
Am enjoying being here
Everyone is always friendly and makes you feel welcomed. Even from the first day of classes for me!
Bang for the buck
I believe they charge way too much for this institution. Especially with West Plains being such a small town. The library books are overly priced for sure. I would suggested to all new coming students to rent books or buy them from a previous student.
Tips for prospective students
Attend every class. It is really important to be there and hear the lectures. Also, take good notes. At first it is difficult to catch everything but you learn how to shorten your notes down.

I could not imagine going to school anywhere other than Missouri State West Plains. They find way that make it easy to pay for college and EVERYTHING you need to complete your degree can easily be found on campus. Whether you need books and other school supplies (found at the Drago College Store) or you need a quiet place to study, take tests, and find information (at the campus library) they have it!
Tips for prospective students
Missouri State will give you an advisor to help with ANY college questions you have. Go to him or her as soon as possible to get acquainted because this person is your life line.
Academic Rigor
Like all schools, you have to keep up with homework and study. However, Missouri State gives you to tools to make studying a breeze. You will soon be amazed at how well you like your teachers and how they help you with the material.
Dorm Life
I am not staying in a dorm but I have seen the insides and they are really nice. They are also located just off the library and cafeteria for convenience.
Food and Dining
The school has a cafeteria that is cheap to eat at whether you buy a meal plan or pay meal by meal. They are cooked fresh everyday and SO delicious!
What to do for fun
The civics center right off the campus has a weights gym, basketball court, and indoor pool! There is also a student center on campus that has some similar things as well as many rec rooms with pool tables and video games.
Bang for the buck
Missouri State has a way of working with you to help find scholarships. They are also one of the cheapest classes for an AMAZING quality! You will find that college is affordable and well worth it!
Clubs and Activities
This college has sports such as basketball and volleyball. But if you are not a sports person there is still something for you! Forensics, Chess, Anime... with hundreds of clubs there are many for you!
Campus Safety
This campus ensures the safety of every student. By every door there is a list of numbers to call if you feel threatened or unsafe. For example, if you are taking a night class and become afraid to go outside by yourself, you can contact an authority to escort you to your car.
