MSU is an amazing Big Ten University. The students and staff really take pride in their University. The enthusiasm is felt everywhere you go.

This is a full service university set out on more acres of beauty than can be imagined. The campus is extremely large and building range from "turn of the century elegance to modern. It is easy to get around.

Michigan State University is a first rate university well known for its nationally ranked education programs but also noted in many other disciplines. It offers and beautiful campus with excellent sports and good midwestern morals. It's a beautifull, friendly, educational choice for those interested in continuing their education. The Eli Broad Art Museum is a gift to mid Michigan and... More

Beautiful campus, whether you are a student, parent, or just a visitor. There is lots to do and you can even pick up a free "concert" while students are rehearsing for a concert or just warming up for marching band. Art museum is new and innovative. Food on campus is especially unique, including the Dairy Barn which has tremendous ice... More

There is a little known (even by students) Museum of Natural History on campus which is really nice. Not big, but enjoyable. Check it out if you are alone or with the kids.

Love the Campus!! Everyone we dealt with was very pleasant and helpful. Enjoyed the cookies that were left in our room at Kellog by the Baking staff at the University. If I were much younger, I'd consider attending school here.

Plenty to do here! Favorite thing is just walking campus in the fall. Tailgating is fun but too many rules, football games and it's parking are expensive. Gardens are lovely, dairy store is great and check out the surplus store!

OK, so we're biased. My siblings went there. I went there. Two of our three kids went there. My wife grew up in the shadow of campus. My daughter had her wedding outdoors at Beaumont Tower. She and her husband for a company owned by the University Foundation. But putting all that aside, this is one of the great universities... More

People get lost in the system and are just numbers. Most incoming students are from overseas and the local students are not that bright. Not the best school I have been to. Poor parking and campus is too spread out. Signage is not good!
