I absolutely love the community that I've found on campus through my spartan christian fellowship group. I've made lifelong friends and been able to be a part of these people's lives that I never would have met anywhere else. I'm going to be a bridesmaid for one friend, and I've found my future husband. I wish that the school didn't have such a big party scene and that could change with taking away some of the focus from greek life and putting that more towards academics. Otherwise, I've had a life changing experience at MSU so far and I can't wait to finish up these last couple years and then spend another 4 years here in vet school.

Michigan State University is a beautiful place to attend. The scenery is awesome, waking up to that every day is the best. The professors are so caring as long as you put in the effort. It is such a diverse community with people from everywhere around the world, you can learn so much and meet so many new people. The community itself is just great all the people are so nice.

My favorite part of MSU is how beautiful the campus is. There's so many trees and the Red Cedar River is always a beautiful sight. There's also a feeling of unity and pride on campus as almost everyone is wearing something MSU related.
