6 Things Missouri State University Students Should Be Thankful For

6 Things Missouri State University Students Should Be Thankful For

Everything that an MSU student should be grateful for.

There are many things the students of Missouri State University should be thankful for:

1. The Plaster Student Union

The Plaster Student Union (the PSU) is magical. It’s the home of Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, Panda Express, Subway, Grill Nation, and Burrito Bowl. The PSU always brings happiness. It has the best food, and it also has nice places to study. There is also a mini convenience store so you don’t have to walk all the way to CVS.

2. The Bear Line

The Bear Line is there for you when it’s too hot or too cold. It’s there when you are feeling lazy and don’t want to walk for five minutes. It’s there for you to take you downtown so you don’t have to move your car lose your parking space forever.

3. Potter’s House

Potter’s House is the best. It has great drinks, snacks, and it’s a fun place to study. You can go there with all of your friends, play games, and just hang out. Also, you should really get the Oreo Quicksand. It’s amazing.

4. Downtown Springfield

Downtown Springfield has a lot of fun things to do. The Black Sheep, Aviary Cafe, and the European Cafe are some of my personal favorite places. It’s good to go there to get away from the dining hall food on campus every once in awhile, and you can take the Bear Line there for free!

5. Puppies

There are always a ton of random puppies on campus. I see a dog at least once a day, but also there are sometimes events where puppies from the local shelter will come and you can rent them for 20 minutes. There are also puppies during finals, so even though that is the worst time of the year, you still have something to look forward to.

6. The Renovated Glass Hall

Glass Hall was under construction for forever, but now that they are done remodeling, it is the prettiest thing ever. They are also adding an Einstein's Bagels there which makes it even more heavenly. It's also a good place to study, because it is gorgeous inside, and there is also a balcony for when it gets warmer. Even though I'm not a business major, I still love going there and studying.

In grade school, we were all told to think of things that we were thankful for. The list usually had Mom, Dad, siblings, your home, school, and all of the things you owned on it. Now that we are older, we don’t make lists very often, but maybe we should. There are a lot of things that we should be thankful for that we don’t always realize, especially at Missouri State.

10 Shows Netflix Should Have Acquired INSTEAD of Re-newing 'Friends' For $100 Million

Could $100 Million BE anymore of an overspend?


Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

For The Grandparents You Lost Before You Were Ready, Because You Never Can Be

We weren't ready and there is so much I wish I could tell you.


You were taken far too soon. It's not fair, I didn't have you for long enough. Why do the bad things happen to the good people?

It's been nine years and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you. When you left, I had to be strong for mom because she had to take care of everything. But when it was all said and done, I was curled up in the closet crying.

It's been nine years and you've missed so much. You didn't get to see me baptized, start cheerleading, graduate high school, get my first job, or have my first real boyfriend. It hurts to know you won't see me graduate college, get married, or have kids. But, I know you are watching over from Heaven. I can always feel your presence.

It scares me because Kylie was only 6 when you left us. I worry about what she remembers. I'm scared because I can barely remember your voices. But I am thankful because I remember grandpa's love for hats, grandma's love for scrabble, and a shared love of card games. I remember big Christmases, the mess of making chicken and dumplings, running down the hall away from the tickle monster, and most of all, I remember the love you showed me. Your love was overwhelming, safe, and unfaltering.

To you Grandpa and Grandma, Ray and Joy, I miss you, I love you, I hope I do you proud. I will show the love you gave me to as many people as I can. Your memory will live on through the stories we tell and you will never be forgotten.

I'll give mom a hug and kiss for you. I know you'd give us all one. Keep watching over, OK? I love you.
