Every fall, our office produces the new recruitment package for the Admissions Office. This year, the new design incorporates new marketing recommendation from surveys and findings by the research consultants/marketing firm CJRW/PSB. We added 8 more spreads to the Viewbook so we can have a spread about our six academic colleges and school of agriculture. The majors list are now listed under each college. Each college/school spread highlights its wonderful opportunities, inspiring professors, and academic excellence. As part of the recommendation, the book features more photography and infographics to tell the Missouri State stories. We continue to use student spotlights to spread the student experience.

The package includes a Viewbook, a matching envelope and a paper application.
