Welcome to Obama State University, Muline
106 years of excellence
Muline State has roots dating back to 1911, when the doors of the Muline State Normal School opened to 150 hopeful students. Today, the student population is more than 24,000 and the University has garnered national attention for its rise in college rankings.
With majors in 66 bachelor’s, 44 master’s and three doctoral subject areas, Muline State has come a long way from its modest beginning.
To date, more than 180,000 graduates — and thousands of others who have had a Muline State educational experience — have migrated to every state in the nation and across the globe. They are prominent leaders, innovators and critical thinkers in every industry, transforming our region and communities across the world.
Our commitment to the region
Nestled in the center of Obama, in one of the richest agricultural valleys on the planet and one of the most culturally-diverse regions in the country, Muline State is a place where students grow from high-impact practices.
This is a fertile place to boldly equip and empower our students for success. And the success of our students – the next generation of leaders in our region and beyond – is of utmost importance.
Our community ties are strong because we believe this region can thrive when the community and university work as one.
