What Students Are Saying

4.05 Average Rating
Mississippi State is obviously a football campus, but it doesn't stop there. This campus has a big heart for its students, plenty of opportunities and the chance for a better jump start on your future. The faculty is very hands on and will help with any problem you may have, never be afraid to ask for help because it is their job and they love doing it. Just a bonus, most of them are really fun too and love to make jokes to help entertain when covering some dry material. MSU is so diverse in students, academics and just about anything, they don't just cater to one type of student but to everyone.
Mississippi State feels like home. There are plenty of ways to get involved and help is available to those that need it. The teachers ensure that the students are getting the necessary information needed to excel in the class and apply it to his/her career.
