Missouri Southern State University is an excellent choice for students interested in forming close bonds with local and international students, as well as the Joplin community. Small classes taught by full time faculty also offer students the opportunity to experience individualized learning and to get to know their professors.  

The University offers a strong and active international club that allows students to take advantage of the natural beauty of Southern Missouri and the Ozarks by going on camping and canoeing trips or visits to local favorite attractions such as Silver Dollar City (pictured below). 

Additional benefits to choosing the MSSU program with ISEP is having the opportunity to select a "worry-free" option due to its excellent chance of placement. Furthermore, students can utilize the benefits of the friendship family network which allows the opportunity to practice their English skills and/or to get to know local community members who invite students into their homes for dinner, events and special occasions (such as Thanksgiving).

    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. 

    MSSU brings in visiting artists and lecturers, hosts concerts and comedy shows, puts on movies outside on the Quad, and even treats students to free lunch and ice cream throughout the year at picnic events and socials—all to enhance the study abroad experience.
