Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Academics Rating

The classes are great! Most of them are just perfect size. My biggest class right now (while taking some more general education required classes) is about 55 students. The workload is a lot, and it is very rigorous! But, that's okay, its college and it is teaching me stuff... such as responsibility and time management. The professors are friendly and great to work with. Some of them might push some of their personal views and beliefs down you, but you just have to learn to ignore it.


Alumnus - Grad Year 1999

Academics Rating

I got a degree in Computer Information Systems and 10 years later I'm still using the things I learned in the classrooms. I'm also still in touch with my favorite professor, even though he's retired. I think the CIS program at MSU is one of the best based on meeting others that got similar degrees. The workload was intense during my last semester but other than that, it was fine. Also, the class size in my degree was small and I got a lot of personalized attention.
