Michigan State University Reviews
Michigan State University is one of the best state schools you can choose to attend. The campus is fantastic and allows for a very college focused experience. There are no big cities near you to remind you that the world is much larger. Michigan State University is a happy four year bubble that will teach you a lot about yourself. There are many different types of people and many activities on campus. Sports are phenomenal and campus pride is present. Most students are laid back however like any public school you will find drop outs and geniuses. There is a return on investment from this school and I believe no matter what degree you choose you can’t go wrong. Be smart, work hard, play hard, and GO GREEN!
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!
