5 College Sophomore

Academics: Mississippi State has the best academics of any university in Mississippi or the SEC. Their curriculum is strict, but the success rate is quite impressive. The workload is crazy. Professors give a ton of homework. Registration is short and simple, but register fast. Classes fill quickly. The fifth floor of the library is a solitary study room.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I love the EE program at MSU. The advisor is always willing and ready to help. The workload is sufficient, but not overbearing and there is plenty of held offered at all times. The classrooms and labs are always clean and available for use.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I feel like I am getting the best education I can.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The workload for any major is difficult. What many people learned really quickly is that there is no "easy" major. They all have their easy and hard classes, as does mine. My favorite part about my major is that it requires me to study abroad and intern. While it sometimes gets frustrating having those things hanging over your head, it makes you sit down and really focus on those things when you might otherwise put them off.

Academics: There are lots of majors available. The professors I had were most friendly and competent. My favorite place to study on campus was the library.
