Megan Ashley - 12/27/2019
Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2018
"As much as I love this University as a whole, I feel as if the Kinesiology department cheated me. When going into this program, I heard so much about this program being not only the most popular at the University, but also one of the best. However, the further into the program I got, the less I was learning. I feel as if I learned a lot from my gen-ed classes and first two years. After that, all of the upper-level kinesiology courses seemed to be the same. They all had very similar coursework and were taught the same way. The professors stand in the front and lecture, then tested us on canvas over a very minimal amount of material. Very few professors in this program know how to teach or care about your future."

Degree: Veterinary Technician
Graduation Year: 2019
"Poultry science classes have some of the most hands-on labs available. If did not grow up in the poultry industry and want to learn, I highly recommend. Professors and faculty are knowledgeable in their field and are eager to help students learn. The classes are small which I feel increase the learning experience. As for MSU, the campus is large and has lots of diversity. It is well maintained and locals are friendly."

Kiley Martens - 7/31/2019
Degree: Criminology
Graduation Year: 2019
"The four years that I spent at Mississippi State University were four of the most fun years I have ever had. The campus was the first thing that I loved about the school. All of the class buildings are in a rectangle shape around what is called the Drill Field, which takes two minutes to get across in all directions. I had visited other campuses before and did not like the fact that their class buildings were spread out so far from each other. The campus is also filled with beautiful trees that made it pretty to walk around campus during any season of the year. The second thing that I loved about this school was how family centered it was and how friendly everyone was. Anyone you would meet became a friend! I also played sports while I was there and the school treats their athletes very well! From academics to athletics, we always had an abundance of resources at our fingertips. Lastly, the town was a typical college town, so sports games were the one fun thing that we always did during the week or on weekends. If I had the chance to redo these last four years, I would still choose to go to school at Mississippi State University."

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 1993
"Mississippi State University has an awesome industrial program that falls under the school of education. Instructional Technology gives you a multitude of options to enroll in, to meet your career needs. You leave with skills in knowledge in the areas of becoming a teacher, computer systems, workforce development, office systems and the list goes on and on. The advisers are very helpful and provides you support where and when needed."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019
"My undergraduate career was a learning experience. My university had it's fair share of problems but the department that my degree fell under was fairly small and closely knit, so I was able to develop fairly close relationships with my professors and fellow students involved in that department."

Graduation Year: 2003
"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."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2019
"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."

Denise Hill - 3/29/2018
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2017
"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."

M.B. Humphrey - 6/29/2017
Degree: Communications (Journalism & Media)
Graduation Year: 2012
"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."

Alicia - 6/26/2017
Degree: Physical Education
Graduation Year: 2003
"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."
