    For all that the university offers the price is well worth it. For a four year college it is extremely affordable. The dorm rooms are nice, the professors are great, and so is the food. There is also lots of free stuff given out that is possible through student fees.

    I never got the feeling that I was at a smaller or cheaper school here. Sure, when I traveled to schools like MU or KU I noticed that Greek life was bigger, but you don't need to be a part of Greek life at MSU to make friends. My education was about average, but the more you put into it, the better it will be.

    It is a good school for an extremely reasonable price. There are many scholarships offered by the university, so that also helps pay part of the tuition.
