| I loved Michigan State -- seduced by beautiful campus in summer and the promise of scholarships, I wasn't disappointed. This school is big enough that if you are deliberate about it you can find your niche and a good group of friends. Parking's a pain, integrated studies classes pretty much suck, and I had a class or two (Accounting, Earth science) with several hundred students. Otherwise, though, being in the Honors College was a benefit because you get to sign up for classes first and you can choose which of those enormous classes you really want to take. I liked East Lansing's accessbility, though some city residents aren't too happy about the number of students and they'll pass noise laws, etc., to make that known. Lansing is an asset for aspiring politicos or (like me) city beat reporters. |

| Rule of thumb, check out many difference universities before making your choice. MSU is a HUGE school, I think the hardest part for most people seeking out help with their school work ... no one will hold your hand, you are expected to do you own work, and find your own help. MSU does provide many resources for help you are looking for, free tutors, people to proof your papers ... you just need to make sure you take advantage of these things, otherwise you will be lost! |
Depending on your major, the classes can range from 500+ to less than 30 people. Classes are pretty competitive, however, everyone on campus is pretty nice.
If you are looking for a great school, and a fun social life this is the place. There is always something going on provided by the university, or off campus. Sports here are fun as well.
The best part about MSU is the solid reputation, when you go for an interview, no one will say "MSU ... where is that?" That is a major advantage. Also I highly suggest taking part in this school's excellent study abroad!GO GREEN!

| MSU has a highly ambitions undergraduate and graduate student population. Friendly, trendy, and smart describe the school as a whole. The large campus can be a downfall for those coming from a smaller area; however, individual attention in the many colleges does help. The faculty is very motivated to edify the students. There is a good mix of in-state and out-of-state students, making for an fascinating population. |
The educational quality itself is very effective. Most professors provide relevant work that applies to the real world. Essentially, this university provides world-renounced education & professors. The classes become highly competitive in higher-level classes, especially the College of Science, College of Nursing, College of Business and College of Engineering.
The University Activities board puts on great programs for the students almost every night of the week. They also provide 3-4 different movies shown each night on the weekends. The dorms are a fun and safe atmosphere where you can easily find a floor to your liking; they offer same-sex & co-ed floors, quiet floors and non-smoking floors.
The campus is maintained well, there is always an improvement going on however, which can lead to some traffic headaches. There are many upper-scale shopping districts in the area as well. The CATA bus system is also an excellent tool both on and off campus, and can usually get these without a car to where they need to go.
Athletics, of course, are also popular on this Big Ten campus – MSU is probably the most spirited campus in the country.Overall, I highly suggest this campus! Feel free to contact me if anyone has any question!
