    It is a very nice school with lots of things to get involved with. It is also a very BIG school, which can be overwhelming at times. The town of Starkville has everything you would need, but there isn't much to do off campus.

    It's a small town, but campus is usually active, and you get used to the slower pace. It's a more local atmosphere, and the town is basically centered around the school. It's easy to connect with people. Whatever your interests are, you can usually find some way to involve them. Football is a huge thing here on campus, and even if you're not into sports the atmosphere is enjoyable.

    Like I said above, it's amazing being here. It definitely is worth going here because I am a pre-med student wanting to go to UMMC (University of Mississippi Medical Center) and I think I have a good chance of getting there because of MSU. I LOVE it here: 1) because most of my friends go here from high school, 2) because I have a bunch of friends ALL over the country including people from Washington, Pennsylvania, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Texas, Arizona, California, Wisconsin and EVEN people from all over the world like Japan, Korea, India, Iran, Australia, etc. So if you don't think you will fit in, well think again.....I promise there's a place for everyone here on campus
