MSU is a terrific institution with a spirited student body and boundless resources. In my study of History, I encountered some of the most dedicated teaching faculty in my higher education career. They were certainly dedicated to their research, but also to the success and progress of their students. While the university is quite large, I found a home in my college and my degree program. It made my community feel smaller and allowed me to build personal and professional connections more easily. MSU's student services are above average, and readily available for those students who are proactive and seeking help. The students are friendly, and the local community is supportive.
My years at MSU we're some of my favorite to date. I was blessed with smaller classes due to the size of my program and my teachers were knowledgeable and patient. I was able to participate in a study abroad program to China that changed the course of my future.
Your program produces "techs" of limited community college "degrees" . You send your "interns" to larger clinics, soon to be corporate. Of course, they are wooed by these clinics, promising all kinds of experience. In reality, those of us who have introduced young people to the honored profession on the promise that they will work after graduation are the losers in this game. We spent two years arranging staff scheduling around your unorganized, hectic, never out on time scheduling. Students arrived tearful almost daily. Despite that, they are "flattered" by offers. We pay four dollars per hour for PART TIME techs than the last student you graduated was offered at a full time clinic. We understand your job; sell this community college paper to make your own living. Shame on you.
Overall, I enjoyed my time at Michigan State University. From the freshman orientation to graduation, it was an experience that can never be taken away or imitiated. The experiences with all the on campus events especially during home football games were wonderful. Spartan for life. Class of 2006.
I went to Michigan State University and graduated with a Kinesiology major and a minor in Health Promotion. This major allowed to refine my lecture size and provide more one on one time with my professors, while attending one of the largest universities. After choosing a Kinesiology major, it is even a requirement to decide on a minor, which helps promote a more rounded education, increasing my chances of success post graduation. As I have gone on to further my education with a Master's in Orthotics and Prosthetics, the broad spectrum of health related classes has given students a wide spectrum of professions to plan to prepare for. It provided the large campus, yet intimate class size that I desired for my college experience.
The engineering college at Michigan State University is a very open and fun college to be involved in. The instructors are more than happy to help with any questions, they also help to find internship and job opportunities. The teaching assistants and learning assistants are very smart and educated individuals who genuinely care about the students.
Michigan State University provided a great place to flourish as an individual in an academic setting. Every professor I was able to interact with during my four years in undergrad had an immense amount of knowledge and experience that they were able to share with students. In addition to the rich classroom setting and staff experiences, student groups and campus organization are bountiful and offer opportunities to get involved with individual interests outside of the classroom and explore various experiences that help students grow and navigate their academic and professional lives.
Attending Michigan State was one of the best choices I've ever made. I love this university to a far greater degree than I could have ever imagined. Attending MSU is more than just attending a university. You grow to love the unviersity, you grow to love the community, you become apart of something that will last with you even after you graduate. The pride I have in my alma mater is extreme.
Michigan State University provides students with a well-balanced environment that encourages exploration and cross-collaboration. I often found myself in classrooms surrounded by students representing various undergraduate degrees. Among the benefits of being an MSU student is the accessibility to explore and undertake a multitude of majors/minors across the varying residential colleges, which in turn enables for the opportunity for students to create a more comprehensive and unique degree. To this end, MSU residential colleges (James Madison, Lyman Briggs, Eli Broad, ect.) are also well structured to bring about a more personal advising approach, both academic and career, that complements well the obvious resources associated with a larger university. A suggestion worth noting would be to ensure that you take advantage of the resources of these residential colleges to aid in your progression through MSU, they can be unbelievably impactful when the effort is put forth to use them.
Michigan State has a great studio art program. It is in a great location if like me you aren't a fan of congested cities. And the guest lecture series that is provided for students, staff, and anyone in the area really is fantastic. I am really happy that MSU was where I attended for my undergraduate degree.
