4 College Junior

Academics: I love it. I know almost everyone in all my classes.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I have just begun my major so I'm not sure about much that has to do with it. For the most part anyone who I have talked to has said that the professors are wonderful and very easy to get along with if you work hard and stay motivated.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: There is a large variety of professors, curriculum and many other things at MSU. That being said it would be very hard for me to explain the academics that are offered. All I would really have to say about that is that there is MUCH MORE at MSU.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The advisors are always willing to help out and offer any advice.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There are a few areas that still need some dings worked out, but otherwise all programs seem wonderful.
