    I think MSU offers a great, well rounded experience for the some of the lowest tuition prices in the nation. I feel like I have been able to participate in almost anything I can think of either free of charge or for very little expense to me. The academic reputation of the University is valuable to have on a resume and the career fair and student career center will help you prepare for a great career.
