I have so much love for MSU. Immediately when you walk on campus you fall in love and instantly feel at home. It's a feeling that every student at MSU knows but no one can really describe. I'm truly so thankful that I made the decision to go to MSU and call it home. The people are so great and so so helpful. They make your experience A+. The academics are truly something you won't find anywhere else, the professors want to see you succeed and have great office hours. The athletics are by far the best in the SEC everyone loves their school and the atmosphere is something so special. The student section is absolutely incredible, in both Davis Wade, The hump, and Dudy Noble. MSU is the best school, I can't imagine myself anywhere else.
