Welcome to MSU Texas! 

Mustangs Round-Up is a unique extended orientation series designed specifically for the new undergraduate student at Midwestern State University.  For five amazing days, all incoming students will converge on campus to prepare for their first year at MSU. Students become part of the community at Midwestern State University by learning about university traditions, how to get involved, adulting, leadership skills, developing school spirit, meeting their professors and deans, and so much more!

Our commitment to helping you succeed begins the minute you set foot on campus, where new friends, faculty, and staff are instrumental in helping you clarify your goals and realize your vision.
