4 College Sophomore

Academics: Like I've said, love my classes, love my professors, love my program. And I'm a good student so that helps.

4 College Junior

Academics: So far I like MSU. Thank you

4 College Sophomore

Academics: It just needs a more diverse music program. I hate to use the word but a "cooler" music scene. That would make it A LOT more fun and I wouldn't have to leave campus to do any of that stuff.

4 College Junior

Academics: Everything seems to flow well.

3 College Junior

Academics: The professors are knowledgeable and challenging but could be a little more engaging overall. Many don't really inspire passion, just stressful cramming. Workload is very heavy for History majors with lots of reading and papers. The facilities are a little crammed and sometimes rundown. I'm not really familiar with internship and job opportunities.
