Overall Experience: I would choose this school (Michigan State University) all over again if I could. Everyone here is so incredibly friendly and open to just about anything. Students and staff are willing to accept one another for who they are in order to overcome obstacles together for the greater good. Professors truly seem to care about the success of the students and are most often very willing to help meet with the students to help them do whatever they need to do to succeed. The university continues to try to improve the experience for both students and staff and is always trying to better the academic process for all.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Based off of many visits and orientations and welcoming sessions at Michigan State University, I have had the best experience already. MSU is very diverse campus but there is something about the huge campus that makes it feel like a home to me. I enjoy the large amount of students because I love meeting new people. Oh, and the food is excellent!

Party Scene: I mean its Michigan State University, some kids just come hear to party and leave when they are kicked out.. but at the end of the day if you don't like to party there are plenty of good people who have other things to do with their time then play beer-pong.

Campus Food: The food is great it offers food from all cultures which is great. They also have options for vegans, vegetarians and you average american whole loves them some fries.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: In general the financial aid process was not the best, I have a single mom of 3, and although she is a nurse making $50,000 a year, after taxes, house payments, car payments, and keeping her kids clothed, college is just not in the budget. So when I saw I only got $3,000 while I was thankful, I worried me...how will I be able to pay for my dream college? will I even be able to go?

Campus Housing: There are many different options on where to live, however many dorms are subpar in comparison. The overall cost of living on campus is way too high in comparison to everything.

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.
