    I absolutely love Michigan State! I can't imagine being anywhere else but here! After a week of my winter break, I'm ready to go back. There is always something to do, the students are always friendly, and there is a place for everyone, whether that be in greek life, clubs, or sports. It has been the best days of my life at Michigan State and I will always be Spartan proud.

    MSU's campus can be overwhelming at first, but once I became used to living at school I absolutely loved it! I have made a bunch of new friends and gotten closer with ones from high school. Downtown East Lansing and the surrounding areas offer many opportunities for a break from campus, especially for shopping!

  • I am a current student here

    Being a freshman, I've never ran across another student who did not want to give me tips and/or advice on how to make it through my first semester or directions to a building. Upon my arrival, people were super eager and friendly to get me on beat with college life. There were so many student-ran events that I really liked because at my high school nothing was really student ran with no help from teachers. After being on campus for a couple months, it hit me that I am a real college student and the movies I've seen about college is TRUE. It's always something to do at Michigan State; whether its going to class, a sport, club, planning an event or volunteering. You can't ever say you're bored. The university even emails you with opportunities to get involved in. It's so cool to me being around other people with the same ambition and whose working towards the goal of graduating as me.

    I am enjoying being at Michigan State University because I have met new people and the teachers really care about the students. I have also had the best of luck because I also love my 3 rooms; they're really cool.
