Major: Other (This Major's Salary over time)
my experience at MSU has been good, I am glad I went here, its good for the price, and I absolutely love my major (biosystems engineering). As far as socially, like any big university, there is a lot of drinking/partying, but I found plenty of other things to do. There are a ton of clubs, and a ton of people. The only thing I really don't like about MSU is that the students are very closeminded, not very active. there are some activist groups (womyn's council, LBGT, etc), but they are hard core, hate anyone that disagrees (closeminded). The students who do nothing but party are really annoying, especially when they complain about having to get up before noon or that they have classes on friday (if you are a science or engineering student, you will most likely not be able to do either, unless you skip class) . But like I said it is a big university, so you can find other people who you will get along with. The best thing about MSU is that there is really no competition, it is all up to you to do as well as you want to or need to without elitist idiots who try to sabotage you.

I highly recommend going to a university this big, because you can always carve your own niche. Even though the university treats me like a number, my department knows me by name, and I am on a first name basis with some professors in one of the programs I am involved in.
