4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got many scholarships that I wanted. I am currently looking for more to apply to

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The hours are great and there is great diversity with restaurants. I wish there were healthier options available.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The worst thing about off-campus housing is the cost

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are people from every background and religion you can imagine! I never expected to meet so many different people.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There are always renovations being done on our sports facilities so that they are always nice!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my choice of major. I plan to become a registered dietician after graduation and I couldn't be more excited!

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I have never had an internship, although I plan to look for one soon. It seems somewhat difficult to find one relating to my major, however.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: It's inevitable that there will be drugs and alcohol use on any college campus. I would say Michigan State's drug and alcohol use is slightly higher than average, but it is somewhat expected since it is a Big Ten school. There is definitely lots of peer pressure to drink. A lot of times people will give you weird looks if you are out with friends and not drinking or try to convince you to change your mind.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There is always something going on, whether it be a frat party or a small house party. In the winter and cold months there are always cab rides available for transportation to and from wherever it is you want to go.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The bus systems can be tough to figure out. Also, they are full many times especially in the winter or days when the weather is bad.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life really contributes to the community at Michigan State. Being a part of Greek life helps make the campus seem smaller and more of a family. The housing is very nice! The houses are big and most are well-kept.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: In the neighborhood that I live all the shops are really close, so I got very lucky!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. My classes are usually very close to my dorm and I am always given options to choose classes at the times that I want. Walking to class is the best because Michigan State has the best campus! Students and even strangers are very friendly and always willing to help. Only a few dorms are pretty old, but there are many renovations going on which goes to show that MSU cares about their students. Life on campus is great. The only problem is that tuition is really high and it can be a struggle to pay for school if you don't have scholarships or enough financial aid.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Everyone on campus loves our sports teams! Spartans are always showing up to all different types of events and cheering on our fellow Spartans. If any school has the highest spirit, it has to be Michigan State University.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The location is great and central!

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: If you haven't heard about the culture at MSU.... where have you been?

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are multiple businesses open extremely late night.

5 College Junior

Nightlife: Best Bars, best girls, best parties and best sports in the country

5 College Junior

Majors: Getting into the Eli Broad College of Business is a daunting task. Stay focussed from day 1

4 College Junior

Majors: Depends on your major, but most the Eli Broad college of business is one of the best business colleges in the country

4 College Junior

Academics: Professors are hit or miss, depends on your major

4 College Freshman

Transportation: There are a lot of ways to get around campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus isn't very strict with some things as they are with others.

3 College Freshman

Academics: There are a lot of difficult classes.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of choices for dining on campus.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Most students are very satisfied with their decision to attend Michigan State University. New students sometimes complain that the size of MSU can be overwhelming and that it’s pretty easy to get lost while walking to classes; however, it only takes a few weeks before the campus starts to look familiar and feels more like home. Many students say they have made great friends and have been able to handle the challenging workload.

A university as large as MSU provides students with countless opportunities to excel academically, develop unforgettable social ties, and prepare themselves for a meaningful career and future. Unique research opportunities allow students to work closely with professors while gaining experience in their field of study. Many students take advantage of the wide range of study abroad experiences that are available every semester. With over 500 student groups and more than 200 programs of study, there is something for everyone at MSU. Program- and hobby-related groups are a fun way to meet new people. Make an effort to talk to people and keep up with schoolwork. Settling into a new lifestyle during first semester can be difficult for freshmen, but many are bleeding green by the time they return from winter break.
