Since 1937, Missouri Southern State University has provided educational opportunities for southwest Missouri and beyond. Missouri Southern has evolved from an outstanding junior college to its role today as a comprehensive four-year, state-supported institution.

The University's academic programs are organized into four schools: the School of Arts and Sciences, School of Education, the Robert W. Plaster School of Business and the School of Health Sciences. The university also offers a division of graduate studies and distance learning.

For more than 75 years, Missouri Southern has developed outstanding, state and nationally accredited programs that prepare our students for the competitive and changing 21st-century society.

    Joplin, Missouri, United States

    Missouri Southern State University is located in Joplin, Missouri. Joplin is situated in the southwest corner of Missouri, on the Ozark Plateau near the state lines of Arkansas, Kansas and Oklahoma, and is the transportation and commercial center for the region. The area enjoys relatively mild winters and beautiful springs, so both indoor and outdoor recreational activities are available. A large shopping mall, a 14-screen movie theatre and dozens of restaurants are located within one mile of campus. A city-operated trolley makes regular stops on campus and provides inexpensive transportation to key locations around the community.

    Stay in shape by working out in the 71,000 sq. ft. Beimdiek Recreation Center or swimming in the 25-yard lap pool. Missouri Southern also offers a variety of other recreational services including fitness classes, wellness events and a sophisticated intramural sports program. 

    In addition to the fun you can find through Missouri Southern's recreational services, even more can be found through the Student Activities Office. The Campus Activities Board hosts over 50 free events per semester for Missouri Southern students. In the Student Activities Office, you can also get information regarding more than 70 registered student organizations.
