Positive Negative Neutral Advice
The accounting department at MSU is one ofQuite BrightAccounting
The accounting department at MSU is one of their bright spots especially the professors. However, the overall university experience is mostly negative. Your academic advisor is non-existent and you wouldn't even know they are there if certain classes didn't require waivers. The school doesn't make accomodations for students who have full-time jobs by making sure required courses are available for night class even though they claim to during the admissions process. there is one pretty good place to eat on campus attached to the library and the recreation center is pretty clean but overall I wouldn't recommend the place to anyone.

Question
I enjoyed being a student at MSU andBrightGeography and Geosciences
I enjoyed being a student at MSU and I have nothing but fond memories. After having lived in a concrete jungle most of my life, it was refreshing to see trees, clean streets, and picturesque buildings. Tuition was reasonable and the student to teacher ratio was low. As a freshman, I was timid but by the time I graduated, I had more confidence and made many friends. As for the academics, I was fortunate to have attentive professors and awesome classmates that were not only sincere but fun too! It is unfortunate to read many negative comments. MSU was my home for many years and has a special place in my heart.

They say there's a lot of social activities, but that's not true if you're not in a brainwashing Greek organization, that is.
