    Got a scholarship, so cost is reduced. For me it is a great value. For OOS, without aid it is pretty costly.

    There are always public figures that are willing to support our campus and even swing by! Within this year we have had guest appearances from pop idol Cher, political figure and activist Bernie Sanders, and if you're lucky, you might catch out mascot Sparty hanging around.

    MSU is a top rated school and comes with a top rated tuition cost, but I can promise you that you won't regret it. The campus is beautiful and well maintained from the landscaping to the sidewalks to the actual roads. The lecture halls are constantly being updated and improved,and although there will always be professors that you don't get along with, MSU has some amazing teachers on staff. The meal plan and dorm room expenses are ridiculous, but the food is decent and the buildings are sound.

    Tuition is expensive as it is at most universities but it is well worth it. At MSU you will receive a fantastic education and also have access to many different resources. There are many programs, activities and opportunities available to you that make it a great bang for the buck.
