Many consider living in an residence hall or on-campus an essential part of the “college experience.” This is where you’ll make lifelong friends, meet students from backgrounds much different than yours, and just basically have fun.
Our residence halls come in all shapes, sizes and floor plans – from suite-style residential colleges and apartment-style downtown halls to traditional, shared-room style halls. We also have fraternity and sorority houses, and the Christian Campus House.
Wherever you decide to live, rest assured you’ll get the academic and social support you need. Each residence hall includes study lounges and computer labs, and hosts dozens of programs and events for students each semester.
Missouri S&T has more than 200 student organizations. Whether you like to longboard, or run long-distance, there’s an organization for you. More into Dungeons and Dragons or Call of Duty and Halo? There’s an organization for you, too. Heck, do you just like to BBQ and eat good food? Guess what - there’s even an organization for you.
Stay active with intramural sports. Get some friends together and play a team sport like softball, flag football, volleyball, floor hockey, ultimate frisbee, badminton, kickball, disc golf, dodgeball or basketball, or show off your solo skills in sports like swimming, golf, billiards and disc golf. The intramural sports department offers 30 events per academic year. Our intercollegiate student athletes aren’t the only ones with the opportunity to play on turf year round, as we also have a intramural turf field. The field is open seven days a week during the spring and fall semesters, and until 10:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, so get ready to play under the bright lights.
We offer a number of club sports that aren’t offered at the intercollegiate level. Much like our intercollegiate teams, these club teams compete against teams from other colleges around the state and country. And they have a lot of success doing so. Our rugby team finished its 2015 regular season as champion of the Gateway Conference, going undefeated in conference, while our inline roller hockey team is consistently a contender for the championship in the Great Plains Collegiate Inline Hockey League.
Keep the “Freshman 15” at bay by staying active. The Student Recreation Center features an indoor fitness center, olympic-sized swimming pool and track, basketball and volleyball courts. All students are welcome - free of charge - for the entire school year (excluding holidays).
Our Leach Theatre hosts over 100 shows a year - many of them free to students. Past shows have ranged from Broadway productions like “Mamma Mia!” and “Dreamgirls,” to concerts by Grammy award-winning artists and chart toppers like Phillip Phillips, Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Arlo Guthrie, to top comedy acts like Bo Burnham. Our music and theatre programs also perform there throughout the year, and every semester, you can catch a diverse array of movies through the free film series.
You might hear anything at anytime on KMNR 89.7 FM, our free format college radio station. The station’s DJs host a variety of shows at all hours of the day, stretching all genres of music - from rap to rockabilly, blues to bluegrass, and hard rock to EDM. Completely run and staffed by student volunteers, every semester KMNR looks for new student talent to join its ranks of DJs, outreach and production staff and awesome people. And be on the lookout for annual concerts and events hosted by the station and open to all students, including Freaker’s Ball and Masquerave.
Yup, so you’ve heard that Missouri S&T throws a pretty epic St. Pats party, but did you know that we host concerts and events on campus throughout the year?
Grab some international food and enjoy some diverse dance and musical performances at Celebration of Nations, the biggest event of its kind in the Ozarks, or celebrate the end of the school year at SUB’s Block Party.
