My overall experience at Mississippi State has been great. Coming here has allowed me to grow, meet different people from all over the world, and experience great opportunities with their wonderful organizations. I feel my school is unique because no other college can throw a football game like Mississippi State, no other college could help my growth experience as Mississippi State has, and no other college could provide some of the most carrying faculty as Mississippi State. I would choose Mississippi State University again because being here makes me feel at home!

I love school. I have always loved school and been an honor student since kindergarten. My favorite experiences were Wings competitions, Beta Club community pride activities and Band competitions. My school is unique because there are clubs that don't demand you to be an A student. Assembly programs are sometimes planned by students. Even though we are a small school, we have a wonderful choice od dual credit classes and AP classes. I would gladly recommend my school to any student of any school. I love my school. I have " Bearcat" school pride!

I love Mississippi State University! The campus is so beautiful and easy to get around. Most of the staff is really friendly and helpful. The Career Center and Writing Center are great for getting advice and critiques. The premium dorms are very nice (definitely better than Ole Miss!) and the Colvard Student Union and Perry Cafeteria serve pretty good food. I would definitely choose to go here again; the atmosphere is so awesome, the people are mostly so down-to-earth, I have made so many friends! I love walking around this campus when the leaves are changing colors. The dorms and student organizations always have fun events planned. And you won't find more school spirit than in Davis Wade Stadium, ringing our cowbells!
