Grizzly Welcome Week 2017

This campaign ended on August 15, 2017, but you can still make a gift to Missouri State University by clicking here!

If students start out on a good note, they will end on a good one too!

Grizzly Welcome Week 2017 is geared towards creating a welcoming atmosphere for all students during the first week of classes. The goal is to create a series of events that is inviting and engaging to all students. We want them to feel truly welcomed at the West Plains campus, engaged with faculty and staff, as well as connected to the West Plains community.

As you are probably aware, higher education funding was reduced, but the need to support student success is greater than ever. We need your help to welcome our students and set them off on the best path possible for success in college!
