LIFE ON CAMPUS
What you’ll discover is that Missouri Southern is more than just classrooms and textbooks – it’s a thriving community.
See the world while in school! More than 1,300 students at MSSU have taken the opportunity to study abroad over the past 10 years.
Research shows that students who live on campus and get involved in campus activities, on average, earn better grades and have a higher level of satisfaction with their college experience.
Students have a choice of several room options, including traditional dorms, apartments, suites and quads. All of the housing options come with separate parking, free Wi-Fi and access to a Bluray DVD movie theatre and game room.
There are plenty of ways to get involved with campus life, from joining a campus club or one of our sororities and fraternities, participating in intramurals, or attending one of the dozens of free events sponsored by the Campus Activities Board each semester.
