5 College Freshman

Athletics: The school spirit is the best and the athletic teams are great.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school spirit at Michigan State is what sets it apart from other schools. Also, football and basketball games are fun to go to.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Depends on your major. Personally, not much was done for education during undergrad.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: West Circle was the best place to live in my opinion! Super close to classes and off-campus things.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: It's what you choose to make it. If you want to be part of Greek Life, go for it! If not, then that's fine!

3 College Senior

Athletics: Could use some updating but not at all bad. It would be better if they were free, as it would mean working out and exercising as something everyone could do, just not if you can afford the hefty gym membership fee.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I think that each college has its ups and downs but your experience is what you make it! MSU is full of opportunities for this, and you can push yourself to be whoever you want to be!

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Its alright but we had a lot of break ins this year

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Was challenging but a little too difficult

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It was fun but I am happy to no longer be in a dorm

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I was homesick at first but its good now

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are so many different activities and social scenes running through MSU, that not every student needs to participate in Greek life. Greek life is only suited for certain students, and many students might not feel that it is for them. A lot of non- Greek students might judge Greek students as being a conceded, but in reality they are just like them and just decided to join a club that suites them. No matter what Greek chapter you join, you are able to live in that chapters house at least one year you attend MSU.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: One reason I chose to attend Michigan State was because it was a top ten school for athletics. My whole life I wanted to be able to say I attended a big ten school. One of the most fun things about my freshmen year was hanging out with my friends before football and basketball games, and then being able to go support my team at the games and usually watch them win. Not only is it fun to go, but one of the most fun parts about attending sporting events is dressing up in my school colors, green and white. Another great thing about MSU is it allows all students to participate in a sport they love even if they are not on a varsity team. MSU offers so many different sport clubs that students are able to participate in.

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.
