3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is expensive, and every student housing complex gives ridiculous overage fees. But it's better than living on campus for sure.

Off-Campus Dining: There's no restaurant off campus that sparks excitement within me, I usually go to hang out with friends, not for the food/drinks.

Administration: I've been treated fairly by administration with the exception of parking violations.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: You have to be completely drunk to have a good time.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I wish there were more scholarships available, but the actual financial aid application process isn't that bad.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: It's never anything to get excited about. I usually eat on campus if only if I'm dying of hunger.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I had a great on-campus living experience. My dorm was always clean, any issues I had were resolved quickly and professionally, and I made life-long friendships. All the residents were like family.

4 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus life is great! Especially the BSU and intramural programs.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. Starkville is a safe community as a whole. As a female undergraduate, I even run at night occasionally and feel perfectly secure.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I love greek life at MSU. As a greek, I believe being apart of a sorority has been crucial to my happiness at MSU. However, my favorite part of greek life at MSU is that it is not entirely exclusive. It doesn't dominate social life like it does at many neighboring SEC institutions.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: We had a fantastic football season and MSU athletics as a whole are on a upswing. Our baseball games are the best college baseball experience in the country. Intramural's are fairly popular and are easy to become involved in. They have many fun sports and activities including intertube water polo and battleships, a canoe game played in the Sanderson's pool.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: From what I understand, off-campus housing in Starkville is great. It is extremely affordable and the apartments are all very spacious.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: STARKVILLE HAS THE BEST FOOD. We have many good, local restaurants to choose from. Unfortunately, if you don't want southern style food or a soup/salad place it is a bit lacking. We desperately need a decent mexican restaurant and ethnic restaurants in general. Also, check out The Biscuit Shop on Jackson Street! Literally the most unique place to grab a biscuit in all kinds of varieties. (also check out their instagram)

4 College Freshman

Administration: We have the kindest faculty at MSU. They will bend over backwards to help their students. It isn't hard to not get caught doing things, however if you are caught violating rules there will be punishment. I found that the visitation policies were silly, however you most likely won't get caught.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Mississippi State offers a ludicrous amount of scholarship money to students. If you are from out-of-state and have a decent ACT score you can easily receive full-tuition. Even if you don't have the best academics, the university is still a very affordable option.

Party Scene: I love Mississippi State. Unfortunately, the party scene is not the best. Most weekends if there is not a football game or something else of significance the student population goes home. This leaves very few people to live it up in Starkville. However, like any college town, you can normally find a party if you seek it out. There are a lot of apartment parties as well. If you are wanting a hardcore party school in Mississippi, you should probably go to Ole Miss.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The first thing you need to do is downgrade your meal plan. Freshman are required to have a meal plan, and are automatically signed up for the completely unlimited option. This is entirely too much food and too expensive. The best place to eat on campus is Einstein's Bagels or State Fountain Bakery. Also, next year we will be getting a Moe's Southwest Grill.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus at Mississippi State is great. Our dorms are very luxurious and have lots of common spaces for studying and socializing. I live in Griffis, the honors dorm, and love it. Compared to the other dorms, we have a greater sense of community. All of the "new" dorms are approximately the same distance to the Drill Field, where most of your classes will be. Hull Hall has the best location on campus, right next to the Union and football stadium, but also has community bathrooms. However, all of my friends who live in Hull love it.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid applications are a pain and the people that have to be dealt with at the admissions office are not very helpful

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Not nicknamed starkvegas for no reason. There is always someone who wants to have a good time.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The cafeteria food is cooked well and generally tastes fairly good but there arent many healthy options to choose from. There is a salad bar but it stays the same with not a lot of variety and most of the other options are fried foods, pizza or burgers.
