4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: School has been really great so far. I am enjoying the campus a lot and it is a learning process as well while I am experiencing college. Learning how to be independent and managing my own time has also made my experience at Michigan State University worthwhile because I felt that my surroundings and impacts were all positive and inspirational. The classes are wonderful and full of information. I will definitely use the information I have learned in my classes for certain areas in my future and I couldn't be more proud to call myself a Spartan.

Overall Experience: I love everything about my school. The professors, the campus, the school spirit even my peers. I can go to class everyday and see something I had not seen before. Its such a beautiful campus with an even greater atmosphere. Theres nothing like fall on Michigan State's campus. From tailgates to the changing of the leaves on the trees it is all so beautiful. Alumni and fans alike gather on campus to root for the best school in the state. That kind of atmosphere you cannot duplicate. I don't think I have ever attended a college campus and seen the same amount of love and support for that school that is given at MSU. By far my favorite experiences have happened during fall semester here at MSU. I wouldn't change those experiences for the world.

Overall Experience: My school is amazing. The College of Music is small enough that I get a lot of individual attention, but the university is rather large, so it's always fun on campus. I have made a lot of friends in one year and I love my professors. It's the perfect school for me and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Overall Experience: I don't really know what to say about this school. I guess it is not quite my scene considering it is known to be a party school. I am really into my academics and they come first no matter what but some of the professors are outright ridiculous.

Overall Experience: I absolutely love Michigan State University. When I first arrived, I really wasn't sure it was for me, but now I can't imagine myself anywhere else.

Overall Experience: I honestly love my school to death! It was not my initial choice, but i'm so blessed to be involved in this atmosphere. What makes me love my school the most is that I am part of the official dance team here. Without this opportunity I may have a different experience. I think it is important that wherever someone chooses to go, they stay involved with who they are by doing what they love to do. And for me, that was staying involved in dancing. I love performing at football and basketball games while supporting the team I love at the same time!

Overall Experience: The campus is beautiful. This college looks amazing and allows individuals to become the top in their respective fields. You can easily tell that this university has tradition that many other colleges strive to attain. It is an incredibly friendly place and you can tell that the people who come there enjoy themselves. I can't say enough good things about this university.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would absolutely choose Michigan State University if I had to do it all over again. I have felt so welcomed and at home here. My major is small enough where I have become close to all those pursuing the same career. I feel cared about by both my peers and my professors.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really enjoy being on campus because there is so much to do. There are plenty of places to eat and hang out, and there are so many extracurricular activities. One of my favorite places on campus is the library. It's not always quiet, but there is a little cafe, and it's a great place to study. For the most part, all the professors I have had are great, although sometimes the TA's aren't the best.

I think the biggest downside to campus is parking. It is extremely overpriced, and I am constantly stressed over how much money it will be just to pay for parking. Tuition for classes is already high enough and I think overcharging college students for parking is unfair. Sure the CATA bus system is excellent, but it is usually not on time so it's not a reliable source for getting to classes, and who wants to wait for the bus in the winter when it's freezing cold?

Overall Experience: I have had a lot of classes, but my TE classes are probably the best. They are always full of students who are willing to learn and willing to help each other. Most of the time, students do not talk or engage with one another, but these classes engage you so much that you are happy to get to know your fellow students and even make events together. The teaching college is wonderful at making teachers and long-lasting friendships.

Overall Experience: So far, MSU has been nothing but wonderful. The people are welcoming, the campus is beautiful, and the academic programs are awesome.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I do truly love this school however recently I was going to transfer but I decided against it because the opportunities available at State are truly unmatched.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The campus is great. Surrounded by great faculty- especially in the Lyman Briggs College. Always being challenged to do more and given opportunities not provided by other schools.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It has a good physics program and lots of scholarship opportunities. The food is great and I enjoy being in a big campus. The biggest downside is that I sometimes feel like a number or statistic more than a student in that some of he responses I get from the college's administration are generic or otherwise not helpful, or that some of the classes i was required to take seemed pointless for what I wanted to pursue career-wise. Additionally, I think some departments use teaching assistants (TAs) to liberally as I have had classes where the majority of the class was taught by TAs. Sometimes this has gone well because of good TAs and other times I would have preferred learning from an actual teacher.

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.
