    Make sure they have a program for your major, size of campus does not ensure they have all majors possible. Also, tour campus. The colossal size may be intimidating and not properly suited for all.

    Walk around campus as much as possible, MSU is huge, but once you start to get familiar with it you can easily make this big campus a lot smaller and it will feel like home. Also buy a bus pass, it the winter you will not regret this and please don't try to ride your bike all winter long.

    As a transfer student, I would recommend taking the community college route to get your university/college requirements taken care of in a more affordable manner. I understand, however, that total immersion in the campus lifestyle is important for many people, and I sometimes wish I had the ability to experience it myself. Ask questions! There are so many teachers, students and staff who will drop everything to help you succeed, and there are a lot hoops to jump through just to get started.

Along with your education you must have connections.
