I asked a group of current and currently graduated Missouri Western students about if they believe that Missouri Western is able to compete with bigger schools? I used a facebook poll and here are the numbers.

Certain Departments Only- 6 votes

Here are some of the responses:

Rachel Simmons I know MANY new grads from MANY different departments already land great jobs or get accepted to great Master’s/graduate degree programs since graduation in May. And isn’t that the reason we are all going to school in the first place? MOWO is doing something right.

Linnea Edlin I think academically, we have programs that could definitely keep up, but I think we have some programs that would also fall seriously behind. Athletically, I don’t think we could; full scholarships are not given to athletes, so obviously, the top athletes go where they can have all of their schooling paid for (though a lot of MoWest’s athletes are REALLY good!). I love MoWest SO much, but there are pluses and minuses to it, just like every school.

Missouri State wasn’t one of the schools mentioned in your question but I have been told by Kurt McGuffin and Jerry P. the football coach that Missouri State won’t play us in football because we would likely beat them even though they are D-1 FCS. Northern Iowa won’t schedule us either and they are a really good D-1 FCS program. Even though our football team is D-2 we play in the toughest conference and are very competetive in it so honestly we could take down some of these lower D-1 teams in football. Now in basketball these schools would destroy us right now.

If you have a response, then let us know below!
