Health & Safety: I have always felt safe on campus it's when I go off campus that I feel it is less safe.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is very expensive ($1000+ a month) the room I was assigned was an ok size for a single but would not work as a double. The room was very hot and there was no AC. It also leaked in the winter. the best part of living on campus was the proximity to class and having somewhere to go in between class.

4 College Senior

Athletics: The football, basketball, hockey, baseball, and soccer facilities are phenomenal. I am not a big fan of any of these sports so I feel like the money put into these programs detracts from the money put into academics.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I feel the quality of education is great. However it is very expensive and I haven't felt a sense of community.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: MSU has a variety of activities and clubs. It also provides many courses and extracurricular activities including study abroad with any major.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: MSU has an entire department to help students network within the employment community for any major.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: MSU informs you by e-mail, text, and call in the event of any form of assault.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: All activities are very important in campus life.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The spartan family are very helpful, welcoming, and friendly.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a great experience all around

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The courses and professors are amazing. There are a variety of courses to choose from, it can be a little stressful because I want to take so many of them but I can't. The courses so far have been very informative and I finished the year learning and knowing a lot more than I thought I would. The professors are also very helpful, they offer office hours and if you take advantage of them they can really help you succeed. The classes are pretty big, seeing as there are so many students, but they are not as bad as people think. There are classes that have recitations where you meet with a small group on a different day of the week, which is extremely helpful. But overall it has been a wonderful experience.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: MSU offers many opportunities to explore careers and they offer a lot of help assisting students in finding jobs or internships after graduation. There is also a lot of opportunity to find a job during the academic school year or even over the summer for current students.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Overall I feel pretty safe on campus, I am not afraid to walk alone around campus. The MSU police respond quickly in an event of an emergency so that is very comforting to know.

1 College Junior

Campus Housing: I didn't have the best experience in the dorms. My hall was not as social as I hoped it would be. I also did not get to choose my roommate so that was the worst experience I have ever had to deal with. I was stuck with a roommate who had qualities I was praying my roommate would not have and it was extremely difficult to deal with. I was unable to switch roommates but my roommate ended up moving out so it kind of worked out, but it was super stressful. But I did make some friends in my hall and have been close with them for the school year.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am personally not apart of Greek life. I hear a lot of good things about it and it looks like fun but I don't think I would join a sorority. I would rather make friends and get to know other people around campus on my own time and in my own way. I love the community work that they do and I always try to find things I can do to help out the community in a way that I can do it myself.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school is amazing!! I love the atmosphere, everywhere I go I can see how much everyone enjoys being there and everyone I meet loves our school as much as I do. There is so much school spirit, more than half of the people I see when I walk around campus are rocking MSU gear and its just such a nice feeling to see that. Being a Spartan and feeling the closeness is probably the best part, just feeling like you belong is so comforting. I would never change my decision, I can't imagine myself at any other school.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus has many emergency hubs along walking paths in case someone may feel in danger. These make me feel safer when walking around campus around night time. I feel extremely safe at Michigan State!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are fairly small. Community style bathrooms are clean but a bit of a pain at times. Great way to meet new friends! Housing process was fairly easy. Classes are all over campus..

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life at Michigan State is very popular. Most non- Greeks view it as a way to get into all of the great parties. Personally, I like how much fundraising and community service work they accomplish. Your either greek or not, it doesn't really affect your status at Michigan State. It's just not for everyone. It is a great way to make new friends and meet all different kinds of people!

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I love the athletic atmosphere at Michigan State! All of the fans are so passionate about all of our teams. Our school spirit is incredible and such a great environment to be around. Football is SO huge at Michigan State.

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.
