I love this school and it has always been a 10 on a scale of 1 - 10
Mississippi State in an excellent school! Beautiful campus, amazing faculty, extremely nice staff, who are always willing to help you, it is a school full of activities and career options, there is definitely a place for everyone to fit in and enjoy their college career!
Mississippi State has had an impact on my family for generations. I was born and raised rooted in the maroon and white, and look forward to having that cowbell in my hand for every football game. Mississippi State makes every student feel as if they are family because of their generosity and and helping hand. Any new student will find that Mississippi State will make them feel as if they were right at home. There is no place I would rather build my education and memories than Mississippi State University.
I really enjoy Mississippi State University because of its environment and the people. We are all from different places, yet we come together to this school and get along with each other and learn new things, cultures, and ways of life. I believe that the size is just right. People actually seem impressed when I tell them where I attend, however people from the University of Mississippi look down upon it.
Whenever I tell people I go to Mississippi State University, I always receive a positive remark, even from those from our competing schools. The people on campus, both students and faculty, are very welcoming, down-to-earth, and always happy to be there. MSU has many great reputations. I do, however, want the student body to be more connected to and involved in the student government on campus. I believe that it is very important to shape the school the way we, the students, believe it should be. We also want MSU to be an even greater place when our children are there.
The best thing about MSU is that it makes you feel like you're at home. Everyone on campus is really friendly and you are never left out. Although MSU is a large campus once you learn were you're going it is very easy to get around. I believe that students at MSU have the most school spirit. We show up to every event on campus. Everyone on campus has a closet full of maroon and white. This school has so many organizations that you can get involved with no matter what you like. We have organizations for music lovers, video gamers, anime clubs, religious groups, and things for singers and dancers. The list goes on and on.
I love our school. It may seem that a university of 20,000 students would feel massive, but everyone knows everyone here. Big campus, millions of academic and social opportunities, small-town feel. There is never a boring moment here, and there's always free tutoring available. The classes can be challenging, but I enjoy every minute of it. There's also a lot of school pride here.
Mississippi State University is probably one of the best schools in the SEC. Diversity plays a huge role in the character of the school. The college days party life is everything you could imagine it to be, all with respect to maintaining good academic standings. I still remember exposing my brother to the college life during his senior year in high school. His reaction was speechless. When we walked through Junction hanging with my friends tailgating during the egg bowl, he stopped and said he watching college gameday on the television could not compare to the feeling of actually attending the event!
The best thing about MSU is it's students, and that can be seen by the activity of the student body on campus, in the immediate community, and even effects branching outward into the world. The school itself is a perfect size for the students enrolled here, because mass learning and personal teaching can both take place as necessary. Most people don't understand why I would choose to go to this school if I am going to pursue a medical degree, and they are right in their perplexity as this was a terrible choice of school in attempting to do anything medically related. The Biomedical Engineering curriculum that I have spent the last four years trying to complete is so underdeveloped that in no way do I feel qualified to do anything medically related with very few classes left to take. When trying to decide which college I would attend, Mississippi State appealed in boasting that almost all of their Biomedical Engineering students did well on the MCAT and were often at the top of the roster for medical school. I have a hard time understanding how that could be possible when all of the course requirements for medical school had to be taken outside of my curriculum such as Organic Chemistry, Advanced Physics, and in-depth Biology. There isn't even an Anatomy & Physiology course offered at this school, but is supposedly included in a small part of a departmental course. I spend most of my time on campus in either the Student Union Building or library studying, doing assignments, or waiting for class. The town isn't horribly inactive but without looking for it, it's hard to find the charm in Starkville. The administration at this college is the most aggravating sources of oppression in my life's experience. As long as you agree with everything that takes place on campus and in the classroom, I suppose there are no issues to be had. If you disagree with the way a teacher behaves there is absolutely nothing that can be done about it. If you disagree with how grading takes place or how you are graded individually, there isn't a soul with an open ear. If your adviser is incompetent and lacks any interest in trying to help you succeed, good luck finding the first person that cares. I have had many teachers that micromanaged everything; in one case down to the type of pencil used in their classroom. Some who would waste an entire session of class to lecture on the importance of taking notes in a certain way. This type of attitude was never necessary in these particular instances. I have by one teacher been thrown out of class for listening intently without writing notes. I have had a teacher directly tell me that I was not being graded on my performance on tests, assignments, homework, etc., but on his observation of me in a departmental class. I've had the joy of having a teacher who could barely speak English that used another professor's slides from the class a year previous. I have also had a teacher the "taught" 6 classes in the same semester using the guise of the "emporium" style class in which all learning was taught in videos online while we went to class and did problems out of the book. In no way did these two "teachers" teach the first idea in either of their respective classes. Those who I have attempted to approach about these issues have the agenda of protecting the professors before helping the students. Other professors will only agree with the way these situations were handled; the person above them, i.e. the department head would distract from anything I would try to rectify and instead suggest that some sort of personal problem was hindering the learning process. All levels above that continued in the same manner of bureaucracy until the red tape became unbearable and on each occasion I had to swallow my pride and succumb to being treated unfairly or suffer being handed off to professionals or programs designed to deal with personal problems. I am fully capable of noticing when someone is treating me unfairly, and the administration of this school would do anything to hide it. There is no ongoing controversy at this point in time. School pride is somewhat a misnomer here because all sport related hype and support of the university is completely separate from all academic activity; however, the students are very supportive and energetic about the activities and team sports that take place here. The landscape and architecture of this campus is incredibly disorganized and hard to manage as a whole. I will always remember the Engineering Community program that introduced me to some incredible people that I would be friends with from then on. Parking Services is the absolute bane of any commuting student that is trying to get to class. Their sad methods of overcharging unnecessarily for something as small as being a single space from your zone or putting your parking decal in the wrong place is only outdone by their "discreet" bright yellow envelopes that tag your car.
Overall, I really enjoying being a student a Mississippi State. In order to really maximize your college experience here you have to get involved. Participate and join different organizations that interest you. The school is very large so it is up to you to find people who share your similar interests. I went to a very large high school so the large campus of State did not intimidate me. However, there is a great shuttle system that can take you all around campus so you will not have to walk everywhere. The campus is beautiful, great for pictures. I am glad to be a MSU Bulldog.
We are definitely a football school despite the fact that we are low on the totem pole of our football conference. Between the cowbells and the record breaking attendance football games make for a school very proud of being Bulldogs. That being said though, the football team is not what has captured the school for me. The student life makes me enjoy going back to school each semester. Whether in class or just out on the Drill Field, people are always friendly. It is those people that make State great. It is said that it is a big school but I never feel that there are so many students for it is a spread out school, taking away any cramped feelings with other students.
I love my school. I would not have chosen to go anywhere else. This school is great. We have great teachers and the people here are just plain nice. State is not a too-tiny school, but it is also not the size of a city. They best thing about this school is the great people you meet. Starkville is a great place to be and the experiences I've had here I know will last me a lifetime.
The best thing about my school is that everyone is friendly. The school is very diverse.
College town FOR SURE! I mean how many places you know turn off all the red lights on a Highway in order for fans to leave a football game quickly? My professors have crude humor that they share when they warm up to you and can really be almost like a friend. PARKING SUCKS! For a small campus they block almost all of student parking in order to make more revenue. I personally have painted up for football games and have received the name "That Girl" I take it as a privilege. Lots of school pride that you won't be disappointed.
