State likes to brag about the study abroad program, I haven't had a chance to be a part it of yet, but from hearsay I believe is quite excellent. What I do know a bit about is their physics and astronomy department. I don't knowledge to compare it with other schools, but it is a fantastic program.|

The physics department is bolstered by the presence of the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory, a premier facility for the research of rare isotopes (for studying questions like the origin of the heavy elements). What's more, it is possible for undergraduate students to get involved with research. The department is large but it has fantastic professors. Students seem friendly, from what I hear from the upperclassmen that I know there is much working together so it's not likely to be cut-throat. Moreover, I believe the program commands a bit of respect; if you do well, get involved and establish relationships with some professors you will have a solid application if you wish apply to grad school-so don't over look this place because it is not one of the "big name" universities.

State has a beautiful campus, many gardens, innumerable trees, and varying architecture. It's got a planetarium-how cool is that?-which is pretty neat, I've gone there so I know. The school of music has concerts which are most often free too. Those are some things you don't really hear about- intrinsic benefits of going there.
The Lyman Briggs School of Science is a good program for those interested in science, especially pre-professional paths. Classes are in the dorm in which you'll probably live as part of the program, and it is quite convenient to be a flight of stairs away from the chem lab...if the lab is at 8AM. In sum, don't sell this school short, its worth a good look and so far I'm quite happy I went there.

| MSU is a great school, it is beautiful, well known and a great experience. It can feel overwhelming large when you first arrive as a freshman but quickly shrinks with time. My best advice is to get involoved, it will be much easier to meet people, as sometimes the huge dorms and lectures can be impersonal and less open to friend making. Enjoy your time here you will love it. |
