Midwestern State University is a liberal arts university in Wichita Falls, Texas with a student population of over 6,000. The campus is spread out over 250 acres of land. The buildings are conveniently located on the campus so that every place is easily within walking distance. Parking was never a huge issue when I attended, but they continue to make upgrades to the dorms, the parking areas and the classrooms themselves.
In order to be accepted as a student at Midwestern State University, you have to meet some admissions requirements. If you were studious at all during high school, the admissions requirements will not be difficult to achieve. The university has six colleges with many different degree programs within each of those divisions. The school also offers many graduate programs designed to help students be prepared to enter a competitive work force.
The campus is centrally located in Wichita Falls. Many popular hangouts, such as Sikes Senter Mall are located down the road from the university. There are many excellent restaurants down the road from the campus, near the Sikes Senter Mall. Many of the shopping centers and restaurants are located within a five-mile radius from the campus. There is a nightclub for those students who like to party. There is also a museum and planetarium right off of the university campus.
Midwestern State University hosts the Artist-Lecture Series every year. Since its inception in 1964, they have been bringing many notable authors, celebrities, politicians, and musicians to the campus.
Another campus tradition during the Christmas season, Midwestern State University is the home to the Burns Fantasy of Lights display and high school basketball tournament.
I attended Midwestern State University two different times. The first time I attended was right out of high school in 1997. I was enrolled from 1997 until 1999 and then again from 2002 to 2003. I consider Midwestern State to be my home university since I grew up in Wichita Falls and attended high school down the street from the university.
When I first started my college education, I was a Theatre major. I then became a Mass Communications major. During that time, I wrote for the campus newspaper, The Wichitan. When I came back in 2002, I was a pre-pharmacy major. I was trying to complete the pre-requisites to attend pharmacy school. Many of my other college credits transferred back to Midwestern State University seamlessly.
All of my professors during my tenure at Midwestern State University were kind and took a genuine interest in the success of each of their students. The Hardin building houses the admissions office, registrar and financial aid office. Each of the offices is home to many friendly, helpful professionals who are looking to improve the transition for incoming students.
