Ann - 11/15/2019
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2019
"LOW CLASS, AWFUL FACULTY, and SEXISM EVERYWHERE AT MISSOURI STATE UNIVERSITY. I strongly do not recommend!!!! They were so uneducated, the faculty. The books were out dated. It was as if someone took me backwards in time to the dark ages then forced me to poverty after I paid. The worst. What a rip off that I ever went to this college. Hateful people."

Elizabeth T. - 9/1/2019
Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2015
"The teacher education program at Missouri State University is the best in the state. The school advertises this, and they do not lie. I was more prepared for student teaching than other students from surrounding schools. The professors are of high quality and now how to teach. The practices are up to date. I was able to quickly find a job at a high-quality school district. If you want to be a teacher in any area, there is not a better school in the state. Missouri State is a big university with that small, hometown feel."

"What was Southwest Missouri State University (SMSU) has now become Missouri State University (MSU) because it has grown so much. I am so proud of my Alma Mater. It was an excellent experience being in a Sorority, working for he radio station, teaching aerobics and being involved in Gospel and SMSU Choir. Get involved, make yourself known and do not be afraid to ask for help with anything and everything, it is your future!"

"I strongly do not recommend. Horrid faculty. Low class poor. What a rip off from larger more organized college. The faculty complain that they are being ripped off and try to pick up the students. Sexual harassing. All about the bible when I was studying science."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2011
"The College of Natural and Applied Sciences of Missouri State University offered me a wonderful foundation. My courses within my degree program were taught by knowledgeable, personable professors. My adviser was not the most helpful unfortunately but I don't believe she is with the college any longer. Otherwise, great program and a great value!"

Elizabeth Noll - 6/30/2018
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014
"Overall, I was very happy with my time at Missouri State University. It provided me with an amazing undergraduate experience and opportunities. There were a lot of extracurricular options that I was involved in that supplemented my degree. The biology program I was a part of was phenomenal, but I was not impressed with the physics department. The size of the University was ideal and fairly easy to navigate."

Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2018
"Missouri State is passionate about helping student find their place in the community. I chose to attend this college because of their mission statement and their drive to give back to the local community. There are so many wonderful programs that are very successful. My program, Kinesiology, has taught me valuable life lessons and knowledge that I can apply to my own life as well as knowledge that I can spread with others around me."

Graduation Year: 2016
"Missouri State University's Biomedical Sciences Department offers a wealth of resources to its students, including rigorous program of study that successfully equips one for tools necessary to succeed in post-undergraduate studies. The vast majority of students in BMS degree programs intend to continue their education, either through graduate school or professional programs. The rigor of the courses and schedule is unparalleled, and applying necessary discipline to be successful in MSU's program certainly lays a foundation of success for anyone wishing to achieve elite status in their medical profession."

Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2016
"The professors were amazing in the Kinesiology department, they made sure that you know everything that you need to in order to succeed in a career in the health fields. At the end of your schooling you have to pass the Certified Exercise Physiologist exam to officially graduate. This turned out to be great for me because I ended up getting a summer job designing exercise programs for a business in town and made pretty solid money before going on to grad school."
