Student life is a blast. There are clubs and organizations for every interest and hobby you can imagine. Athletics are amazing and are sure to be a good time. There is always something fun to do on weekends. The campus is very safe and there are emergency telephones placed throughout campus.


Alumnus - Grad Year 1996

College Life Rating

MSU students take tremendous pride in Spartans! I used to save my lunch money to buy basketball tickets, and they worth every penny I spent! I still keep my picture with Izod, it refreshes the sweet memories every time I look at it. Weekends are usually busy with activities and arrangements: social gathering, watching movies on campus, outing, tailgate parties...there is never a time I cant fill up my weekend calendar.
