Mississippi State University Reviews
Mississippi State University Meridian campus was a great place to transfer after completing my basics at Meridian Community College. The professors for the most part were fair and willing to help students. Most advisors worked to make sure all classes that needed to be taken were done so on time.
State offers a great variety of programs that really cater to each student. The college is very affordable and offers great scholarships to students. The biology department offers special topics classes so students can take classes they want, and staff that is always there pushing us to do our best. The amount of clubs and organizations on campus is extensive and will allow anyone to find there home. State feels like home and strives every day to be inclusive to everyone.
Mississippi State is what you make of it. You have to get involved and you have to choose the department that is right for you. It is as simple as that. The school is, however, mainly engineering based. So, pick your major wisely. The teachers are great though. They give advice but only if you make it your business to know them.
Mississippi State's communication program was incredibly well-structured, up to date and diverse in its approach. Within the ever changing landscape of media, MSU was able to keep up by staying on the pulse of the average American's desire for quick, digestible news content. During my time there, I was afforded a number of opportunities for work study, undergraduate research and social interaction with like minded individuals. Taking advantage of these opportunities within in my program, and opportunities offered by the university at large, greatly contributed to the person I am today.
Mississippi State is a great institution. However, I found that minorities tend to not get the same attention as their Caucasian peers. I saw a lot of minority students get caught up in the system. Some were suspended and others were told that they could no longer attend due to academic probation. My experience was not as such, but my downfall came in the form of an adviser who had no regard for my future. Please be attentive and take charge of your destiny. Fact check and don't assume that everything you are being told is true. You hold the power.
Mississippi State University has provided me with ample amounts of opportunities. The university guided me in a way that most schools will not. They are always there to make sure your education is their first priority. For me, money was a problem. The student financial aid office has bent over backwards to make sure I can continue my education. Student Financial Aid office has made it possible for me to graduate and has made me want to continue my education by applying for graduate school fall 2017.
Mississippi State University is a top choice! The campus is beautiful and the school hosts an incredibly friendly and diverse community. There is something there for everyone, from sport and clubs to music events. Sporting events are always fun with tailgating at the Junction and hanging out in Left Field Lounge. Academic clubs, club sports and general interest clubs give everyone such an opportunity to make friends and get involved. The music events at MSU are unparalleled. Bulldog bash is the main, free event with music and fun for everyone and the highlight of Spring Semester! The history program is outstanding! Classes are available to cover so many areas of history that you can easily study what you are interested in. Classes are a great size and the professors take great interest in their students work. Methods and practices of history are taught that prepare one for a future in history or in preparation for other focuses, like Law School. The History department at MSU cannot be given enough praise. The teachers, the classes, the guest lectures and the general opportunities provided are incredible! Mississippi State University is the best!
The Social Work Program offers students the opportunity to interact with a diverse group of students who are on the same path and goal. The program allows for knowledge and skill building opportunities within the school and community. Students in the program are able to explore different potential paths to find the area of specialization that will suit them.
The education program at Mississippi State is by far the best in the state. I felt that I knew all that I could possibly know about education that could be learned outside of the classroom. I felt confident going into my career because the care and knowledge that was shared to me by my professors was very encouraging.
Mississippi State is a great school, full of spirit and tradition. The staff and faculty are fantastic.
