    Michigan State is a world-renown university. It has some of the most prestigious programs, colleges and professors in the world. For example, The Eli Broad College of Business is consistently ranked in the top 100 business schools in the nation. In addition to that, the Supply-Chain Management degree is ranked as the BEST program, of it's kind, in the country!! Harvard ranks second! Although Michigan State is constantly compared to its old-time rival University of Michigan, MSU holds the same academic profile! There is no difference amongst the two universities except that our basketball team is absolutely amazing! read full review

    - Live on campus at least your first year (it’s a requirement, unless you live within 50 miles of MSU; however, even these students should live on campus, not commute). Since MSU is so large, this is the best way to “connect” with the campus. If you don’t, it may be difficult to “find your place.” - Bring a bike. - Visit campus before you choose to come here. Visit it several times. Talk to friends who go here, ask them questions, and ask them to show you around. - Try not to live in Brody Complex. It’s where most of the freshmen end up, and it is so far removed from campus. In the winter, you’ll probably end up taking the bus rather than walking because it will be so cold. Be mindful that the other complexes, like South Complex (with Holden, etc.) and Hubbard/East Complex, may also be a bit removed from the other complexes, your classes, or all the “action” (shopping, eating, and, yes, partying) on Grand River (though Brody is the most removed). I would recommend living in the West Circle Complex or Red Cedar Complex (with Snyder-Phillips, Mason-Abbot, and, across the river and in the most centralized location on campus, Shaw). (I am personally partial to the Red Cedar Complex; I live in Abbot.) These are along Grand River, are close to many of your classes, and Snyder-Phillips currently houses the best cafeteria on campus, and many students from the other complexes will walk all the way across campus just to eat there. - Buy your books online. The 4 textbook stores (3 are privately owned, and the 4th is MSU’s Spartan Bookstore) vary only slightly (a few cents) in prices. There is no competition, and their prices are all very high. Last semester, I spent $225 on books for my 5 classes (4 classes’ worth of books were bought online; for the 5th class, I had no choice but to buy the book new at one of the bookstores for $101). Had I bought 100% of my books from the bookstores, I would have spent $375. So I saved $150. - Don’t worry about community bathrooms, they’re no big deal. Some of the halls have community bathrooms, others are suites where two rooms share a bathroom. The community bathrooms in the Red Cedar Complex are all very nice. - When you get on campus, before classes start, go exploring with a friend. Or meet an older student and have them show you around and take you to the cool places on campus. - When you first get on campus, wander around. Visit where your classes will be, and take “the long way back” to learn your way around campus. MSU isn’t honestly that big, and it doesn’t take long to get to know most of it. - Keep a campus map (I laminated mine) on you at all times when you go out. I keep one in my purse. It’s very helpful, and I use it all the time. It’s helpful when trying to describe to someone where something is, and even the older students get confused sometimes when you’re having a conversation about some building. read full review
