Degree: Kinesiology and Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2016

Michigan State University (MSU) could not have provided me with a better undergraduate experience. MSU has a sense of unity unlike any other. Between the difficult academics, endless networking opportunities and powerful school spirit, MSU taught me how to be both a prosperous and intelligent woman in our modern world. The key component to providing a challenging academic program are the professors. Specifically, the kinesiology and human biology professors at MSU. Not only did they provide me with information from my specific field, but they also provided guidance on how to use this information and apply it to our careers. For example, my exercise physiology professor taught us how to apply our knowledge of the musculoskeletal system to creating new exercise programs for unique individuals. Instead of using a lecture-based classroom, he used a hands-on method to inspire our creative selves. MSU professors also inspired group discussion and group projects. Although some may dread working with others, it is essential to learn how to work as a team for any future career. Learning how to understand and appreciate others opinions is what facilitates new ideas and future developments. Not only did MSU offer rewarding academics, but also opportunities to network and meet new people in the area. MSUs location was in the heart of East Lansing and less than five miles away from Lansing, Michigans capital city. The location of the campus itself provided opportunities to experience the real world outside of college. MSU also offered opportunities to network, including academic and career-affiliated clubs, career fairs, and career counseling. I took advantage of all three of these opportunities which aided me in my quest for a starting job after graduation. Without joining the pre-physician assistant club, I would not have found my current job as a medical assistant to gain the healthcare experience I need. When choosing a university, a student wants to feel at home. In other words, the school culture needs to be a good fit for the individual. Between the endless sports chants to the friendliness of streetwalkers, there is no such thing as not fitting in at MSU. I am proud to be a graduate from Michigan State University and I would highly recommend any individual to choose this school to pursue their dreams.

Degree: Zoology/Animal Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

I got a great education from Michigan State. MSU has an plethora of resources to choose from in any state of your undergraduate career, they are there to help you through it all whether you need basic core class tutoring or you need help with a personal statement/career advising for applications to graduate school, they are there to help you. My best advice is take advantage of all the resources available to you.

Degree: Physiology, General
Graduation Year: 2015

Michigan State University was a great school to attend. I was in Lyman Briggs residential college and graduated with a Physiology degree. I feel like both of these two things prepared me for a future as an NP. I have fond memories of MSU and greatly appreciate my education.

Degree: Advertising Design
Graduation Year: 2016

I love my school life, it was great and I made many friends. Some of the classes weren't as enjoyable. I had my moments when I cried and wanted to run away, but if I learned anything it is that giving up is not the spartan way and backing down shouldn't be on the list of options.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2011

Michigan State University is one of the best colleges in the country to attend if you would like to pursue a career in Education. There is an ample amount of material, and the what makes MSU great is they have a one year internship. The only downfall is that it is unpaid. However, I don't think I would have gotten as good of an education as MSU. Besides the program, MSU overall is an amazing place. The campus is beautiful, there are plenty of activities and events to attend, and I was able to balance work, school and fun. MSU was the best 4 years of my life. I wouldn't have traded to go anywhere else.

Degree: Human Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

Michigan State was the best decision I have ever made! I received a top of the line education, as well as a top of the line Spartan family. My education prepared me for my career as a Physician Assistant, as I have been accepted Wayne State University's PA program and will be starting this May. I received several offers from other schools because they have been so impressed with Michigan State students in the past. MSU is an outstanding school and I could not be more happy that I earned my B.S from there!

Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2014

MSU will forever feel like home. In my four years there I studied Philosophy. Most look at this degree as a laughing stock but my first two years in working the nonprofit it has served me well. The program taught me to problem solve and think outside the box along with great writing skills and argumentation. I would recommend Michigan State to anyone seeking a big university experience.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2007

I grew up in Athens, GA, where UGA is located, and am a 3rd generation graduate of the university. I always knew I wanted to continue that tradition and graduate from such a wonderful school. My professors were wonderful, helped me figure out how to get my first job out college, and really worked with me to help make sure I stayed on top of my studies to graduate. I was able to really apply my studies to my our of school life, and it has helped me continue my career to this day. I'm now in graduate school online at Michigan State University, studying Leadership, Strategy, and Management. UGA has such a diverse campus that I felt really taken care of, and was always treated fairly. GO DAWGS!

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 1994

Michigan St. University was a great institution to attend because of it's diversity. Michigan St is one of the top colleges for having international students.I was able to have a study partner from Senegal, who came to Michigan St. so that he could learn more about agriculture and take this information back to his country so that he could make a difference. I loved attending Michigan St. because I was bale to participate in many things such as: athletics,student government, performing community service,talent shows, and many other opportunities. I would highly recommend Michigan St. to any student that wants a great education and to meet people from all over the world.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I really loved attending MSU! I really feel like I gained opportunities to travel the world, volunteer, and meet many different types of people. My professors were great and are a great resource and a big help when it comes to applying to jobs and other opportunities. One thing that I was disappointed in was that I think a lot of students do not have practical experiences built into their degree programs, so they may not have necessary experience when they leave to get a good job.
