Welcome to MSU Texas! 

Mustangs Roundup is a once-in-a-lifetime extended orientation program designed specifically for the new students at Midwestern State University. For three amazing days, all incoming students will immerse themselves in MSU’s traditions, learn how to get involved, get to know incoming and upper-class students in your academic college, and get connected to their faculty and staff!

Our commitment to helping you succeed begins the minute you set foot on campus, where new friends, faculty, and staff will guide the transition in becoming Mustangs!

For those who wish to participate at a distance, Midwestern State University will be offering virtual sessions via Zoom for all social and educational sessions, student resource fair, choice sessions, a part-time job and volunteer fair, and more! Most of these sessions will also be hosted online, so if you’re unable to make it during the designated time for each session, all students will be able to access and engage with the materials provided as well as contact information for follow-up if they have any unanswered questions, comments, concerns, or inspirational speeches.
