Michigan State University Graduate Reviews

22 reviews
It’s a great university. The teaching style of professors is great. They have nice food bank which helps international students with food.
The activities and clubs are endless, facilities are great. East Lansing itself doesn’t have much to see though but not like we have so much time!

Overall fantastic graduate school. Funding for research/academic travel is readily available (if not abundant), as are teaching fellowships are. Campus focuses much too heavily on athletics, to the point of being cultish, but it can be mostly avoided.

If you don't like college bars/fast food, you pretty much need to get into Lansing proper or Okemos for dining. Almost no cultural activity off-campus.
Beautiful campus, great faculty. I feel at home on this campus and have had a great experience here so far!
