Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2013
"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."

"This university has a great engineering department. My advisers, and other programs helped set me up with 2 internships during my time at MSU. The atmosphere here is great as well; the campus is very active and alive, especially when it is warm out. I came into this university indifferent; it was either here or U of M. I chose MSU because I was treated much better on my high school campus tour, and the surroundings here are so nice. The skills and network that I was able to build during my time at MSU set me up for a successful career. I would recommend any prospective engineering student to attend MSU."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016
"Michigan State is an eclectic college town. East Lansing has its good and bad spots like most campuses. There is a heavy focus on athletics, so if you're not into sports make sure you're comfortable being uncomfortable when people try to talk about them to you. Much like other Colleges, classes depend on your Major and the Professor. Use office hours!"

"Michigan State University is an exceptional university. First and foremost, the campus itself is absolutely beautiful. From the Red Cedar River, to the river-trail, to the farm land, MSU covers a lot of ground. MSU also provides students will an exceeding level of diversity in its students, programs, and faculty. You will have the chance to work beside world-renowned professors and researchers all while experiencing the essence of East Lansing, MI."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."
