Northwest Missouri State College is a state supported college established as a State Normal School in 1905. After 1949, it joined the trend in serving as a general college. Most of the students come from a predominantly rural area which is a rich livestock producing area at the edge of the corn belt. Its position in the northwest corner of Missouri places it within the reach of students from the states of Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas, as well as Missouri.
