Overall Rating

Michigan State University is an amazing school and has so much to offer for each and every students. The campus is beautiful and everyone is very friendly. I can't imagine going to any other school! My tip for prospective students is to just be yourself and find a fun organization or club to get involved with. I'm part of Camp Kesem, which is a free summer camp for kids whose parents have/have had cancer. It's an amazing experience!!


Alumnus - Grad Year 1996

Overall Rating

I enjoyed my graduate study in Michigan State University. The academic programs are diversified and catered to students needs. Professors are amicable and happy to provide any academic and career planning guidance. Grand River runs through the campus, it was wonderful to sit on the river bank in front of the Admin Building, feed ducks and sparrows. Spring is short but beautiful in East Lansing, there are so many sponsored and non-sponsored activities in the spring break. Living is inexpensive: housing is very affordable with options to live on or off campus. MSU has a very dynamic culture, with students coming from all parts of the world.
