Christian Sarna says she made a great decision when she chose Missouri Western.

“If I hadn’t visited Missouri Western on a whim, I probably wouldn’t have gone to college,” Christian said. “I was overwhelmed by the kindness that was shown to me.”

She said at Missouri Western, it is hard to NOT make friends.

“I came into college feeling completely unprepared and knowing absolutely no one. I was never involved in high school, was horribly shy and had no friends. Two years later, I can’t walk 15 feet without running into someone I consider a friend.”

Additionally, she said, she is grateful for all the applied learning opportunities she has had. “At Missouri Western, you don’t spend four more years waiting for the real world. Missouri Western brings the real world to you and allows you to truly soar.”
