What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, MSU was one of the best decisions of my life. As a 18 year old out-of-state student, I wasn't sure what to expect. Immediately everyone was esay going and open to meeting new people. I felt welcomed the beginning. The academics prepared me for the "real" world and gave me the tools to succeed in the professional career.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Michigan State University is my home way from home. Michigan State offers excellent academics, career guidance, housing, food, and ways to get involved on campus. During my time so far, I have received so many great academic and career opportunities. The class sizes do tend to be bigger, but the classes are more specialized which allows for a large variety of interests to be met.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There has been a lot of scandal surrounding the school under past leadership, but our current President has been absolutely fantastic. The campus is absolutely stunning; especially during the spring and fall where the trees, flowers, and rivers flourish with life. I feel safe while walking around campus and the scenery gives my solace during the difficult study weeks. Professors can be a hit or miss, but I have meet some of my favorite mentors through my courses at Michigan State. I would have never chose to go anywhere else for my undergraduate studies, and have found my place and voice within this university. I am ecstatic that I will be able to continue to call this campus my home for the next four years as I pursue my degree in veterinary medicine; of which Michigan State ranked eighth in the world and third in the country. Go green!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy going to Michigan State for many reasons. I am big into academics and sports which are both very big at MSU. They take their academics very seriously and let the students know that by having academic advisors readily available and the teachers having set office hours. Therefore I think MSU is a great school and does a great job welcoming its students.

My time at MSU was an amazing and interesting experience. I made plenty of friends, joined organizations that cared about their members, and met professors at the top of their fields. However, at times I felt as though the academic challenge was not to par.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Imagine yourself as a parent and Michigan State University is your child keeping secrets from you. In reality, sometimes attending MSU really feels like that. There were many instances where my friends and I were clueless about what's going on on campus. We thought everything on campus was "gucci", but in hindsight, there were some people getting food poisoning in specific dining halls, violence, and other drama. It's actually common for big universities to do this and MSU does a pretty good job keeping the students in the dark, however, as for someone living on campus I wish there was better communication with students. Now apart from this issue, I would like to give a standing ovation to MSU. MSU offers dozens of programs for different majors to help students better transition to college. As one of the biggest campuses in the U.S., I was surprised to find that their academic advisors are easily available for students to reach out to and seem genuinely invested in your college experience/plan. There are HUNDREDS of clubs one can join, in fact, they have something called 'Sparticipation' a day where all the organizations and clubs are in one area for you to decide. It's like Tinder actually, swiping right on the clubs that interest you and exchanging digits/email to get more information. There's definitely a school spirit once you're on campus, just scream on top of your lungs, "GO GREEN" and you'll 100% get a response back (money-back guaranteed). MSU's class size also varies a lot, which is something I really like. There are many instances where if you prefer a smaller class size setting, there's a course section available for that, vice-versa. For example, for my 8 am classes (I know...I must hate myself), I would choose big lecture sections, where I can hide in the back and snooze away (sorry mum). Lastly, I'm dedicating this paragraph to their food. As a huge foodie, having good food is essential to me in deciding my liking of a college. During my first semester at MSU, I was pleased to see their variety of food options from Asian cuisine to pasta night. Besides finding a few expired items like chips and bread, the food was pretty good...actually, as I said that the image of me eating their cold uncooked chicken tenders resurfaced, so I'm going to rephrase this. Sometimes the food is really good. Sometimes when they serve ribs and chicken wings, I would immediately help myself for a second serving, thinking 'oOo I'm getting my money's worth today'. However, the other half of the time, the food would be unseasoned, too seasoned, really dry, uncooked, overcooked...you get the point. But I'd like to point out, the dishes itself is actually superb compared to many other college dinings, and there are dozens of delicious restaurants nearby that you go to once your tastebuds began rejecting the dining food.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have enjoyed my time there, overall, but it is in a period of transition. Tuition rates are changing, leadership is changing, and they are trying to fix their reputation in many ways. I cannot guarantee that you will like the way it turns out, but I really have been happy there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really love Michigan State, but I think there are many things they can improve upon. Specifically, the scholarships that they give out and grants because they are known for giving absolutely terrible financial aid. I also think that. they could do a better job of renovating and keeping all buildings newly updated and clean.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love the spirit and environment at Michigan State and can't wait to attend in the fall of 2020. There are so many different clubs to join, so many different sports you can be in, and all the arts and music programs to be involved in. It's a great school and is located in a great town.
