WHAT I LIKED

I loved the professors. They know you by name and you never feel like you are being forgotten in the crowd.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The buildings on the main campus definitely need an upgrade and events happening on campus need to be more advertised.

4.0

WHAT I LIKED

MSU provides excellent education, a beautiful campus, and an incredible atmosphere at a lower cost than many other universities. Its staff is more than willing to help students move up in the world as well, with many undergraduate research programs and/or potential internships being available if you show interest.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

While there are many dining options on campus, the actual student dining hall leaves much to be desired.
