Best decision to go to MSU. James Madison College was a great learning environment and had challenging courses by encouraging professors. The overall environment at MSU was something that I could not have experienced anywhere else. MSU's study abroad program is expansive and was the first time I had ever traveled abroad. MSU is where I developed personal, career and life goals which have carried me through Peace Corps service, Master's in Public Health, and my current job in clinical research.
I absolutely love MSU. I can't imagine having a better college experience in a better place. I've always been a State fan but after actually attending MSU I can truly say that I love the place. I hope to return there someday for my PhD.
Great school! Lots of opportunities other schools don't offer. Some classes are very large
MSU is a great place to go to school. Beautiful campus, good resources, great faculty, and East Lansing is a fun city to live in. I am very glad that's where I chose to attend college.
A nice place to be. Lots of international presence and great support for intentional learning.
Fantastic atmosphere for learning; I felt supported during my time here and was able to not only establish myself as a researcher in my area of interest, but also gain many personal connections as well.
I had a wonderful experience with supportive, inventive faculty and close collegiate relationships. I had also attended MSU for my dual undergrad degrees several years prior.
I love every thing about Michigan State. Of course with a few flaws here and there (and almost all of those flaws fall within the financial aid services), I could not see myself attending any other university for my undergraduate degree. Once I finally came to the realization that I wanted to become a social worker and begin the process of getting my BASW (Bachelor of Arts in Social Work) everything seemed to fall in place for me. I chose to attend Michigan State because it truly felt like I was at home. I did not have to do too much adjusting and I did not feel the need to run home at every chance I could get. The resources that they have available from tutoring in just about every class offered on campus, to special events and of course the college games all added to my positive experience at Michigan State.
I loved the atmosphere of the school. One big campus similar to a small city. However, the price to go here is enormous. I only stayed in the dorms my first year, which is required. I was a transfer student and came in my Junior year. I only re-took Chemistry. But, I ended up having $70,000 in debt. My chemistry class had a 27% pass percentage. The smaller classes were great because you felt important and had one-on-one time. But, the largerror classes had over 900 students and you didn't see the teacher but in lecture. Wish I would've picked a different degree but at the time all my professors were telling us it would be a breeze to get a job in the field because there is a boom of positions available. I started applying for job 6 months before I graduated and all they wanted was professionals with 10+ years of experience or a master's/doctorate. It's been 3 years and the only jobs I can find pay $7-9/hr.
This was a great school in a fun community.
I would because it led me to where I am now.
Be flexible and get to know the people around you.
