Midwestern State University

Our students consistently say they feel at home at MSU – on a campus that is not too large or too small. With an average class ratio of 17:1, students develop close ties to their professors who mentor them through the challenging years. Our beautiful and safe campus is located in the heart of the city of 100,000 people. Add great student housing, and affordability, and it is no wonder that students say, β€œIt's My University. Make It Yours!”
