Michigan State University Reviews
Heyyyyy, so let me tell you about MSU! Michigan State overall is a great school. The campus is very beautiful and spacious. The professors are nice and “most”of them genuinely care about you and how you perform in the classes. The food is okay nothing special, it gets very repetitive. The buses are pretty good, sometimes late but usually on time. Everyone on campus is overall pretty. Although their are sometimes some racial problems, that’s with every school. Overall MSU is a great school and should be one of your top choices!
Michigan State's campus is very nice, with some older buildings scattered around and the Red Cedar River that flows through the middle of campus. There are a lot of places to study around campus, whether its by the river, in the library, or in one of many grass filled lots behind some of the buildings. The professors that i had for my freshman year were all pretty good. The classes at Michigan State do challenge you and require you to do a lot of homework and studying. I'd say one of my favorite parts of Michigan State are the people. Michigan State has a very diverse campus. The night life and weekends are also fun, Grand River is usually very active on the weekends and so are the houses behind it!
My senior year of high school I was very stressed out about committing to a school. I was so unsure of if I would end up regretting my decision and wasting thousands of dollars. I picked MSU because they have a highly acclaimed program in my major. I am currently in my sophomore year here and I couldn't be happier with my choice. My classes are interesting yet challenging and my passion for my major has only grown through opportunities to get experience in my major during my freshman and sophomore years! I've chosen to live on campus the first two years and while the dorms are meh, the RAs have always been very helpful and I've made so many friends who live on my floor. Getting a job was very important to me and I got hired before I even started. I am always shocked with the number of clubs on campus - this is totally cliche but there really is something for everyone here! I would honestly recommend Michigan State University to anyone looking for a bigger (but not too big) school!
