I came from Chicago and the state of Michigan has some of the most close minded people and the economy is so terrible and affects the people around you. I obviously came from a big city and the town of East Lansing is suicide inducing. The most exciting things are the Taco Bell, the Mjiers, and some bars. The social scene was very promising but a complete shit show. This school is more about dressing well than U of I, which I loved, but the people were too sensitive and not as forward as the city folk I'm used to. This is one of the most impressive party schools in the nation, if you can't handle your liquor, stay out of the party. This is review is just a bash of the people and the state of Michigan. This state sucks so much, the economy is so in the shitter that people are either rich or poor and either a close minded white person or from Detroit. I'm white and have multiple best friends who are black back home in Chicago, but people in Michigan are so sensitive to race its disgusting. Also I'm a female and the male population's attempt at wooing you is either "hey, let's fuck" or "let me just sit here and stand in this corner and not approach you". Academically, the school is amazing, besides the Chem & Math programs.. those need some work. If you're from a smaller town this school is for you, I couldn't do it. I hated the people, the economy and the city. (except the awesome fact that sales tax was 6% instead of 11%)
commentTo me it seems like your the only closed-minded person here. I've gone to Michigan State hundreds of times. I have never encountered someone rude or had someone speak to me in a crude way. Maybe you should stop focusing on the state's enconomy and become more open to new environments/how other people live
commentYou spelled meijers wrong. And fyi someone really needs to wash your mouth out with soap.
Why do you have so much hate for the city the people etc? i think you seriously need to look at yourself & the type of person you are. Make the most out of the opportunities you are given. Funny, I have two daughters that attend msu and the male population does not treat them that way. They are both dating respectable men that they met at MSU. They became friends first then began dating. You seem to think that everything is only one way (as with your racial and gender comments) when really there are all types of people and situations not just one. There are lots of negative things people could say about chicago but the truth is people like what they like. What is really the point of cutting things down and sterotyping everything when is reality you know so little about it? Look for the good in others and in the situation at hand. Make the most of your life and be grateful. Be a happy person.
questionWhy did you leave U of I? It is one of the schools we are considering. we are also looking at grand valley state University near Grand rapids, they seem to have a great honors program.
