Mississippi State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (14)
Mississippi State University is a top choice! The campus is beautiful and the school hosts an incredibly friendly and diverse community. There is something there for everyone, from sport and clubs to music events. Sporting events are always fun with tailgating at the Junction and hanging out in Left Field Lounge. Academic clubs, club sports and general interest clubs give everyone such an opportunity to make friends and get involved. The music events at MSU are unparalleled. Bulldog bash is the main, free event with music and fun for everyone and the highlight of Spring Semester! The history program is outstanding! Classes are available to cover so many areas of history that you can easily study what you are interested in. Classes are a great size and the professors take great interest in their students work. Methods and practices of history are taught that prepare one for a future in history or in preparation for other focuses, like Law School. The History department at MSU cannot be given enough praise. The teachers, the classes, the guest lectures and the general opportunities provided are incredible! Mississippi State University is the best!
The Social Work Program offers students the opportunity to interact with a diverse group of students who are on the same path and goal. The program allows for knowledge and skill building opportunities within the school and community. Students in the program are able to explore different potential paths to find the area of specialization that will suit them.
The education program at Mississippi State is by far the best in the state. I felt that I knew all that I could possibly know about education that could be learned outside of the classroom. I felt confident going into my career because the care and knowledge that was shared to me by my professors was very encouraging.
Mississippi State is a great school, full of spirit and tradition. The staff and faculty are fantastic.
I thought it was a great school. The classes are small enough that the professors take the time to know each student and always have time for conferences.
I could not begin to recommend a better school than Mississippi State. From the vast array of educational programs, to the many extra-curricular activities, to the great friendships you will gain here, you will never be disappointed by attending Mississippi State! Hail State!
Living in the dorm my freshman year was a great decision; I met some of my best friends in those hallways and pretty much the only friends I am still in touch with over 10 years later. It's okay not to know exactly what you want to major in when you first begin. Focus on taking the core classes your first year and learn as much as you can about the other programs and career possibilities. Have fun (I sure did) but college is about learning and more importantly learning how to learn. Working part-time, volunteering, extra curricular activities, etc. are all as important to your resume as your degree and grade point average so do some if not all of those.
Around 99% of my experience was distance learning. Not sure about campus life, however, this University is essentially in the middle of nowhere with little to do in the region.
I enjoyed my time there immensely. The people are great. The professors cared. The classrooms and technology were continually being upgraded in my time there.
I started my graduate degree program in the Spring if 2013 under my advisor Dr. S. My focus was in Human Factors and Ergonomics research. This was a different type of work from my training in my undergraduate degree of biomedical engineering. However, once I met with Dr. S. for the first time and learned more about this field, I was sold. The Industrial Systems and Engineering program at Mississippi State, both on a graduate and undergraduate level, is very well organized, friendly, and knowledgeable environment. From the great administrators who work in the main office (Mrs. Bonnie and Mrs. Peggy are the best!) to the professors whose doors are always open for homework help or life advice, this department as a whole has given me so much. The professors have a wide range of expertise and research projects. They are very open to allowing students to gain research and real world experience. The department has a lot of clubs/societies related to the field which are a great way to meet people who share your interests. As a graduate student, I got to know my advisor Dr. S. very well. She is an amazing researcher and teacher. She was a positive force during my time here and even helped me obtain my job after graduating. I highly recommend this department to anyone considering an Industrial Engineering degree. Mississippi State as a whole is also a great campus to grow up and learn in. The environment and the people are incredibly welcoming and there's never a dull moment. There is ample opportunity for social events and tailgating in the junction is a special experience. You'll be chanting "Hail State!" and clanging a big maroon cowbell in no time! There is definitely no shortage of Southern hospitality. The availability of financial aid, scholarships, and tuition cost are very reasonable. The dorm options offer a wide variety as well. I recommend this university in general, to anyone seeking a good college education and experience.
