Mississippi Valley State University is not a bad school at all. It is not quite the best either but for most students who attend, they tend to like it very much. I honestly do not believe Valley is a good school for me but I say this because I do not believe MVSU is a good school to attend if you are trying to go into certain programs, such as psychology. I want to major in Criminal Justice and minor in Psychology but Valley does not offer a psychology program.. but overall MVSU is a pretty decent school.
Mississippi Valley State University is usually the “lit” topic around town. Whether it be good or bad. I know a lot of people who attend this school. When I attend this college, I will try my best to stay focused because people don’t get I know that attends this school come or make me feel comfortable or they can take my focus away.
Many schools (several of the Ivy Leagues, and many liberal arts colleges) have a supplemental essay that asks you to talk about you want to go to their school. They ask this question for a lot of reasons, but there are 2 big reasons, one cynical, one more warm and fuzzy. The cynical reason is, bluntly, they want to accept students who will accept their offers of admissions. The higher the percent of students accepted that go there, the less they have to accept from the wait list, the lower their acceptance rate, and the better they look. The other reason is less self-serving, and it’s more about the students. Schools are not just looking to accept the best, the brightest, and most interesting, but also to find the students who are the best matches. They want students who will thrive on campus, not transfer out (which will hurt their rankings!), and who will contribute to campus life.
I am a current student at Mississippi Valley State University. I'm glad that i chose this school for my secondary education. I chose this school from previous visits, the staff is very welcoming and the students make you feel at home. I' m a freshman all the way from Indianapolis, Indiana and the people here on campus and the surrounding areas will make you feel at home. Academically and socially , this is the campus to be at.

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, knowing what I do now about college life and making the transition, I would give myself very different advice than the actions I portrayed. I would have told myself to focus more and be prepared to be very indepent while being in college and handling my business on my own. College is very time consuming and it is up to the student to determine if he/she wants to either get a 4.0 or just barely pass every class. Its all about the effort you put into your work and how much your future means to you. These are the different words of advice I would have given to myself, had a known what I do about college now.
I wish that I knew that Fin. Aid gives you the run around all the time. Seems like all year around.
The worst thing i consider ta my school is the lack of advisment. The times the classes are given because mostly all the class are given around the same time this leaves you lack of classes needed that cant be taken
My classmates were my family and we cared about each other.
MY SCHOOL IS BEST KNOWN FOR SCHOLARS OF THE VALLEY!!!
There are a variety of people that can attend this school, preferrably those who are athletes and really enjoy sport activities. People who are socially active, meaning those who do not mind meeting new people and loves the surrounding of a div ersed community.
The best thing at my school are the activites that are given. It gives the student body something to look forward to!
A person who has a problem making friends because otherwise you will die of boredom.
Alot of students choose not to attend MVSU based on the fact that its so close to home or they've been exposed to the university so much that they want to engage in a new surrounding. Like all schools, MVSU does have some issues that the administration is aware of and are making great strides in changing the environment. Those same students go off and for whatever reasons after a year or two at another institution return home to MVSU to finish their degree or just to start over. Stop making MVSU your second choice when the university was at your disposal from the start.
My school is very challenging.
The campus is very cozy, some of the professors are very attentive, and our new campus president is doing some great things with Mississippi Valley State Unviersity.
The most frustrating thing aboout my school is living in the dorm with people who dont like to clean up.
Yes, MVSU does serve alot of 1st generation college students who come from the surrounding delta where many parts are considered to be in poverty. I disagree with the students being lazy and unconcerned.
Professors know many of their students by name and in many cases they go above and beyond the call of duty.
Lazy, unconcerned, 1st generation college students, poor.
The school is pretty inclusive. Students are involved in administration dialogue. In some cases classes are small therefore students are afforded one on one attention and the faculty members care about the students taking their classes. Around campus a student can easily find support systems to encourage academic excellence.
