Academics: Classes help me learn for other classes

4 College Sophomore

Academics: What's really great about MSU is how they have a Create Your Own Major program, which is exactly what it sounds like. The classes needed for specific majors are incredibly fun and diverse but keep you right on track with what it is that you want to learn about. It's all about finding the best personal fit for each student. The post internships and opportunities that are available.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Registration is easy and the advisers make it really easy to understand how many credit hours you need, possible options of classes and give you any information for further helpful sources along the way.

3 College Junior

Academics: Professors are always willing to help if you seek it out.

5 College Senior

Academics: Wonderful. Small class sizes, helpful teachers, helpful all around.
