  • I am a current student here

    I am a sophomore at Michigan State University. I commuted both freshman year and sophomore year. I recommend commuting if it is possible for you because of how much money you will save. I also recommend continuously looking for scholarships throughout you college career. There are so many out there not being used. Michigan State University and an excellent school to go to for every opportunity it offers.
