Michigan State has its pros and cons. On one hand it's an enormous university set on a huge amount of land. There are loads of little parks and green areas. The huge financial clout means there's always new buildings being put up, roads are constantly improved, facilities constantly updated. When you're living in a city of 50,000+ students, it's never hard to find things to do. The bar scene could be better, though; because of all the riots and student impropriety, the city is incredibly reticent to dole out liquor licenses. The house party scene is unreal, though, and not to be missed. In terms of classes, it pretty much depends on what you like your classes to be like. Personally, I like to be able to sit near the back in my pajamas, and not have the teacher notice if I decide not to come to an early lecture. MSU's classes are big and impersonal, and allow you to sink or swim on your own. The faculty is approachable, but you have to make the effort. The negative of all this is that after four years, it sometimes seems like you hardly got to know anybody at all in class. Classes are so big that it's almost impossible to sit by the same person enough times to become friends, unless you're the most charismatic of people. A good school, but not for those who crave personal attention and want to be coddled by teachers.
