MO State or NO State

In case other blog posts (1/2/3/4) haven't made it obvious, I absolutely love my university. I decided to compile a few selling points for Missouri State University. I would argue that this is the best university in Missouri (watch out Mizzou).

1. The Twitter Game is Strong - Missouri State's Twitter is not only funny, but they often reply to students. Our bear statues even have their own pages, and the various university accounts talk to each other all the time, bringing something amazing to everyone's timelines. You can also count on these accounts to keep you updated about what is happening around campus. 

2. Club Meyer - Meyer Library offers countless study spots and so many resources for students. It's open until 2am Sunday-Thursday, and offers extra long hours during finals. There's even a Starbucks located inside so you basically never have to leave. The library is actually one of my favorite places on campus. 

3. Clif Smart - Tell me how many other university presidents make hilarious videos and have their own gifs? President Smart also makes himself available to students. He hosts a free pancake dinner during finals week and regularly attends organization's events. He's always down to take selfies with students too.

4. The Fountain - Arguably the prettiest thing on campus, the John Q. Hammons fountain is essentially Missouri State's centerpiece. It's the perfect spot to enjoy nice weather. Just don't jump in! There's a fine for doing so, and rumor has it that fine increases for each level you climb. 

5. Student Activities Council - I may be a little biased, since I am a member, but this is one of the best organizations on campus. They utilize a student fee to bring tons of events to campus at no extra charge to students. For example, in January, there was a free Jesse McCartney concert. Events range from movie showings to speakers to the annual May Day celebration. 

6. Bear Up - Sports are important at any college in the United States and Missouri State has some pretty good stats. Our Ladybears (women's basketball) went to the first round of the NCAA Women's tournament. Baseball Bears are currently crushing it. Almost all sporting events are free to students. Ice Hockey and Baseball are the only exceptions, but tickets are just a few dollars.

7. Growth - Enrollment is up at Missouri State and the campus is growing with it. Our College of Business building is under construction and going to be better than ever when renovations are complete. The Fraternity & Sorority Life community is also working to welcome Alpha Omicron Pi (which will be the 8th national sorority) to campus. By Spring 2018, Missouri State will also be home to 20 fraternities. 

Oh, and here's where you can start the transfer process!
