At Michigan State, we have one of the largest on site/ collective housing communities in the United States. There are multiple neighborhoods, with a nice variety in building type, and student life. There are also housing options for all girls, Honors college, and other academic communities in each neighborhood. Also there are engagement centers in each neighborhood, with tutoring, a nurse, exercise equipment, study areas, game rooms, televisions and lounge areas. There are multiple elevators to take you up to the higher floors, disabled building access, and dining halls in the building where you live!

MSU has so many different cultures and ethnicities on campus! So many students are international, or have studied abroad and all the diversity that results from that really adds to the whole college experience. There are hundreds of clubs for all different cultures, religions, political beliefs, and so many more. You can go to the event "Sparticipation" at the beginning of the year to check out all the clubs at MSU! For example, there is a German Club, PRISM (People Respecting the Individuality of Students at MSU - an LGBT caucus on campus), and so many other groups! Also, each residence hall has a group called MRULE (Multi-Racial Unity Living Experience) that allows residents to come together and discuss social events that are happening around the globe. Basically, MSU not only has diversity within their student population, but there are so many opportunities to become involved with others who have different backgrounds, and with those that have similar backgrounds as you.

I really like the program I'm in, it makes the big campus smaller and gives me a close-knit group that makes me feel safer and less stressed. The classes I take are as diverse and interesting as they can be while still teaching us what we need to know to succeed in our profession. Most teachers are really good and listen to students as far as what they need in class. There are some teachers that are difficult to learn from since they don't listen to the feedback from students, but not many. I really enjoy my program and in my opinion MSU is the best for veterinary technology!
