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.

I went to a high school of about 500 people, while MSU has about 50,000 students. It's safe to say that I was very nervous when I came to MSU, nervous that I wouldn't fit and that I was in over my head, but having been here for about a year and a half, I can confidently say that these worries are far behind me. MSU is so diverse, which I love. I have met so many people of different ethnicities, religions, and walks of life. But in the midst of this diversity, I have found a home for myself. I'm involved in a Christian group called Cru, and through this group, I have made so many friends that I know will last a lifetime no matter where we are or what we do. And honestly, I do not have anything that I would really change about MSU, because it truly is great just the way it is. It can be beautiful, busy, and crazy, and I would not have it any other way.
