We were on a tour of the campus with our grand daughter in July 2013. We were treated well at the hotel which was a great start to our campus visit. We met with several people from various schools within the university. It was a pleasant experience which resulted in her selecting MSU as her educational experience.

Beautiful campus. Took a walking tour through the western campus. Beal gardens are wonderful. Walk along the Red Cedar very peaceful. Enjoyed the shops and eateries in the Student Union.

We rode our bikes around campus on the weekend and enjoyed all of the beautiful gardens. So peaceful with no weekend traffic.

One of the most beautiful college campuses in the country. There is always an abundance of things to do and see including the horticulture gardens, Wharton center for the performing arts and the sports venues. Simply taking a long walk and feeding the ducks near the library will make for a memorable day.

There is much going on: a new fine art museum designed by a significant architect, de-centralizing of support services for housing "neighborhoods" makes sense. Free buses every 15 min. Lots of greenery.

I really like MSU. I am Spartan. Good education quality , nice people . The hot girls are always around campus. I often take summer class. There are no many people on campus in summer . That sucks . Go green

We recently spent a couple of hours driving and walking around the huge campus of MSU. We enjoyed all the beautiful old architecture and were not real happy when we saw the modern, LOL, but we have to roll with the punches! The campus is a botanical treasure of trees, shrubs, etc. of course it was and is an agricultural... More

One of the largest campuses in America and is most gorgeous during the fall when the leaves are changing colors. I was a student at MSU and loved it when I would walk to class along the river.

I entered MSU in 1965 and graduated in 1969. During that time, I got a fine education and participated in Air Force ROTC, Captained the Rowing Team and was an RA in East Shaw Hall. MSU has so much to offer its undergrads beyond its obvious beauty. MSU's production of Rhodes Scholars speaks for itself. As a bonus, I met... More
