Overall Experience: Growing up I always dreamed of one day becoming a Spartan and i fulfilled that dream today I am a proud Spartan and would choose MSU a million times over. I love it here the experience is amazing and people are very welcoming. MSU strives to provide a great learning experience for all its students. They also offer so many extracurricular activities that you can be a part of and that will make it feel more like home.

Athletics: Michigan State is very on sports especially football and basketball you can tell by the big support they have from students and non students. They played great this year being big 10 champions and rose bowl champions and making history by being the first school to win both champions in the same year. The facilities are in great condition and the school spirit there is no doubt about who isn't proud to be a SPARTAN because I know I am.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
