5 College Sophomore

Athletics: OMG! Our football stadium is amazing! Two giant jumbo-trons and a huge addition just this year. I can't wait for the first game!

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Seriously, the biggest parties I attended were all about "The Walking Dead." I am NOT a big party girl.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: This is a typical small town in Mississippi. Not much to do on a Friday night except hang out in the Walmart parking lot. Okay, maybe not THAT bad! We find plenty to do without getting into TOO much trouble!

Health & Safety: This is an area where MSU takes a very serious tone. Students are encouraged to use the buddy system campus security whenever possible. Escorts are available around the clock.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is, well... okay. There are a few places that offer up something different from the same old fast food. Those places tend to be a little more expensive, but for a treat (or when Mom comes for a visit), they hit the spot.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: My dorm this year is MUCH better than last year. My roommate and I both moved from Critz to Cresswell. The room is significantly bigger, although we now have a much small refrigerator. Go figure! Last year, a tiny room with a full-size fridge. This year, a larger room with an itty-bitty fridge. I know! It makes no sense!

Aside from that, Cresswell is pretty good. Nice room, good view, closer to my classes, easy access to parking.

Greek Life: The disparity between Greeks and non-Greeks (or Geeds, as we are known) is what maintains the huge chasm between the two groups. Greeks view Geeds as "second-class citizens." Geeds, to even the score" view Greeks as snobbish and elitist. Sadly, Greeks tend to conform and perform rituals that are demeaning and somewhat dangerous. Geeds see this behavior as silly.

Finances may be a factor that keep many out of the Greek life. Perhaps Geeds are simply trying to keep their self-respect in an environment where those who cannot afford or choose not to join a sorority or fraternity are looked down upon. Going Greek or not is a personal choice, neither of which makes one more or less valuable to the university.

5 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Unlimited plan is the best way to go to meet new people

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere is very warm and welcoming. Our sports attract spectators from a far and never fail at pleasing the crowd.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid, however, I know many friends who apply every year and the process seems to be very simple.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: The health and safety of our students is a major topic for this university. Our on campus police officers are very nice yet very protective. The student health center is always easily accessible with medical professionals that are willing to serve the students with the upmost of care.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: The nightlife is wonderful. The students here are all very welcoming and we know how to have fun. We also know the difference between right and wrong. I have never gone one night out where I didn't have fun.

4 College Senior

Academics: Even though the sizes of many of our classes exceed 100 people, the teachers are always able to provide one on one assistance. The registration process is very easy and even the course advisors provide a one on one experience with it. Depending on the persons major, the workload varies. I am pre-med, but even so my course load has never been too much to handle.

4 College Senior

Academics: My major is a very popular one which brings many people to this school. Even with the large influx of students, the professors and facilities manage greatly. My advisor is always keeping me updated and has helped me since day one.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Quite a few "hole in the wall" restaurants that serve great food. Parking is okay and discounts are too, but there are enough places to keep things interesting for dates and what not.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Campus is very large and very beautiful. Tons of large, old buildings that have been well maintained to continue looking great. Architecture is wonderfully done. Large, open areas are abundant and frequently occupied by people hanging out and playing sports and what not. The library is huge and well stocked with anything needed. If they do not have it, they will have it shipped to them for you. Events are frequent and very fun. Concerts frequently happen, large tournaments of sports, movies outside, barbeques, and everything in between.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I am in a tough situation where I need scholarships but my parents make just enough to not qualify, so it is a little difficult. I am sure others have it easier and some have it worse.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: As a guy, there is no shortage of girls on campus. Generally, they are religious and country, as we are in the deep south. Most are very nice and easy to get along with but, as with anywhere else, there are some that are not so friendly. Social lives revolve around either religion, schooling, parties, or sports. Guys are generally country, as well, and quite frequently a little odd.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safety is really good on campus. I have not heard of any dangerous crimes being committed on campus. The area surrounding campus is a little shady but other than that, its safe.
