Kristine - 2/8/2017
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."

"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."

"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."

Degree: Military Science
Graduation Year: 2015
"My degree program at MSU was extremely rewarding. Because MSU is so large, it is imperative that you take the time to understand who you are and what you want. Attending a Big Ten School was one of the best decisions I ever made and I would do it again in a heart beat. There's just something about being on such a welcoming and friendly campus that makes you feel at home. It does require you to have a sense of responsibility; moreover, I will admit that it took me a minute to adjust to campus and learn how to properly manage my time. Though that transition period did cause me some stress at the time, I came out stronger. I came out a Spartan. I don't regret any of the mistakes I made on my educational journey because they helped to craft me into the person I am today. Today I am an achiever, I am a graduate school student, and I am a future educator. I will always be a Spartan."

"Attending Michigan State University has proven to be the single-most beneficial decision I have made up to this point in my life. The supporting reasons for that statement are both educational and social in nature. Every professor I had truly cared about preparing his or her students for a professional career after college. There were more career tools made available to me than I ever could have dreamed of. Socially, I was able to meet new people and create life-long friendships with a variety of other students. As a result, it gives me no pause to highly recommend the valuable and well-balanced experience that Michigan State University has to offer."

Sitting upon a sprawling campus that amplifies the beauty of Michigan's four seasons, MSU is a great place for building lifelong relationships, cheering on the team in a multitude of sports and activities, and working toward a degree that will impact positive change in our future."

"Overall, MSU was a good school to attend. I do really feel that most students should attend a community college firs to understand what they want to do at university. I felt I had some really great professors, but I also had some bad ones that made it hard to focus on school."
