3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Most of the apartments except for Cedar Village seem to be unreasonably far so that's why I chose to live on campus. It seems like a waste to live off campus

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There's anything from traditional American food like Leo's Coney Island to Rice Kitchen or sushi. There is always something new to try and they are all decently close to campus

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Many of the policies are not strictly enforced but still in effect if there is a problem. The police seem very helpful but the parking services really destroy visiting friends that may live at other dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I haven't received merit based scholarships from my school which is disappointing because I have done well thus far

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Most of the parties I hear about are frat parties where basically all you do is dance to loud music and hook up with people. Thats not really my type of scene

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Some days there are good food and other days I just have salad. Brody is by far the best caf but is so far from everything

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't like living with a roommate so I have a single dorm in the graduate dorm. I live in the center of campus so it's easy to get to my classes

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have multiple gyms, indoor and outdoor pools, beautiful paths to run, skate, or bike (with dedicated lanes) and clean top notch facilities. I have no complaints.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: If you stay low key, and don't do anything outrageous, then you will basically never have to deal with administration. Just be smart and be careful. It's not like you have to constantly look over your shoulder or anything, but you can get in trouble if you aren't careful.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid is great, without it I definitely couldn't be here without it. The only thing is they always offer me a parent Plus loan, which my Parents can't and won't take any loans for me so that's essentially useless. Overall, the aid is good, I got enough to fund a study abroad program in London England. So thumbs up!

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I absolutely love the food here! Other students say they get tired of it sometimes, well I don't know what they're talking about. The food is fresh and tastes great. With 10 or more places to eat ON campus it's really convenient. One of the main reasons I decided to get a meal plan for my third year.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The pricing is very expensive and the application process kind of sucks

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We have a very large variety, but I wish we had healthier options, late night options, and more discounts.

1 College Sophomore

Administration: The cops are really strict even if the problem is small

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It is always pretty easy

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There is always something fun to do!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Although there are a lot of food options, and a lot of good ones like brody and late night union, they have a lot of bad options like East Neighborhood.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are awesome and the environment is awesome, but the data bus is always packed and not always a reliable source or transportations.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off-campus, but know of some apartments. I haven't been to enough to give a fair review

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of restaurants close to campus. I try to avoid eating out because I have an unlimited meal plan and don't want to spend more money.

Administration: If you play by the rules, you won't get in trouble... Simple.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I didn't apply for financial aid because I know I don't qualify

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties are generally good. If you go to a frat, make sure to be with friends you trust, because there can be shady people there sometimes.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: SnyPhi is great. Brody is great, too, but there isn't much of a menu change. There are also a lot of families who come and visit there, so it can be hard to find seating... Which sucks if you're rushed and are trying to get in and out fast.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus with community bathrooms is definitely better than living suite-style. It's so nice to not be responsible for cleaning bathrooms, and it's more private since you live with one other person, not three. The cafeterias are great and are close to dorms if not in each individual dorm.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
