There are many reasons that someone should attend Missouri State University in Springfield, but if I had to narrow it down to just to three reasons I would have to start with the city itself.
Springfield is one of the largest cities in Missouri, but in my opinion it does not feel like it. It has that home kind of feeling, because everything is not spread out like most big cities are. There are several things to enjoy in the city of Springfield such as going out to a movie, getting a bite to eat, or even attending the St. Louis Cardinals AA minor league team the Springfield Cardinals baseball game!
Another reason that someone should attend this University is because it caters to all people. The amount of cultures and backgrounds that attend this University is absolutely impressive. You will learn so much not only from the schooling, but from the students themselves. Anyone can come to this University and call it home.
The last reason that I would recommend someone coming to Missouri State University is for the campus life. Most campuses are spread out and some places even isolated from the rest of the college. Not MIssouri State. Everything on campus is within a 5-10 minute walk, which makes getting to your classes, or anywhere less of a hastle.
