  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Not terrible. There is quite a bit of variety but some things are pretty bland. And the dining room is not big by any means.

    The food and dining at Missouri Western are great. Besides the cafeteria, there is also Subway and a Chinese restaurant in the dining hall. There are also small coffee shops and delis located in most of the building around campus.

    The food is bland. There is little to no variety and sometimes the meals are just strange. One night they served refried beans and eggs... that was it.

    Missouri Western has it's own dining services which caters all of the events on campus, including the cafeteria. The cafateria has tons of options and is all-you-can-eat. Missouri Western also has the food court in the union which changes restaurants on a bi-year basis, and has an Einstein Bros. Bagels, two coffee shops, and a deli on campus.

    Greeks are everywhere but the actual greek life is shotty. There are no actual houses just designated dorms for the specified greeks and the numbers are small. They are involved or in charge of EVERYTHING though, the greeks basically run all events and they do a pretty good job.

    Sororities on campus are rude. I've watched girls cheat on tests and walk out of the class in the middle of lecture. When the teacher asked where they were going they rudely said, Chipotle, like it was acceptable to get up and disrupt class.

    The Greek life at MWSU is something to see. All of the Greeks are really nice even if you're not involved directly, you still get invited to things. If you are even slightly interested, RUSH! It's not something you wanna pass up.

    I am not apart of Greek Life but I am involved in other things on campus such as Western Activities Council and a new organization on campus that I started myself: Colleges Against Cancer.
