MSU provides a great learning environment and many of the professors/advisors (especially Dr. Ramser) are very helpful. Being that class size is relatively small you do get intimate interactions, but most professors expect you to be in class and notice if you are not. Therefore, if you put in the effort (show up) and seek guidance when you need it, you will be in good shape and stay in good standing. If you do not respect the professors time and give your best effort then you might not have a positive experience. All in all, it is college and you get out it as much as you are willing to put into it. The social scene is fine (not great, not bad), but it will take some effort to get involved. I was in a fraternity and had a great time in the Greek system. However, the school does not overly support the Greek system (but does monitor it). In all, nothing was ever given to me at MSU. I worked to make my grades, get involved (including a stint working at the student center), and get ready for the ?real world?. I have been fairly successful since leaving MSU and work with and/or supervise many graduates from more ?prestigious? DI public and private schools. I can honestly say, with a few exceptions, most were not any better prepared to join the professional workforce than I. Since I graduated, MSU has built several new buildings (including good student housing and a state-of-the art fitness center) and the architecture is consistent across campus (not like the UNT campus). As for the city of Wichita Falls, it a decent town of ~101,000 residents. The ?things to do? factor is not overly impressive compared to much larger cities. However, if you seek out things to do (volunteer, work, attend the MSU artist lecture series, play intramurals, join clubs, etc.) you will have a nice quality of life and find balance at MSU. School spirit is decent and has improved over the years (and would improve if they ever build a football stadium closer to campus). Overall, I would recommend MSU, especially to those who are self-starters and are looking to make life-long friends and experience college as a student, not as a number. My wife, who I met at MSU ~14 years ago, shares the same opinion (giving MSU 2 ?Yes? votes).
