Created in 1922 as Wichita Falls Junior College, the second municipal junior college in Texas, its earliest home was in Wichita Falls High School with which it shared both the building and faculty. Later, a legislative act and a vote of the people of Wichita Falls set up a separate tax district to support the junior college.

The school is fairly a good size so class rooms were not overcrowded. Teachers were able to engage with students but the town surrounding the school is very small.
My experience at Midwestern State was amazing. The classes were small and very intimate. This was honestly ideal for the professors to engage with the students on a personable level.
Great professors who want their students to succeed. PowerPoint slides worked well as we could print them out before class and make additional notes on them
