    I never got the feeling that I was at a smaller or cheaper school here. Sure, when I traveled to schools like MU or KU I noticed that Greek life was bigger, but you don't need to be a part of Greek life at MSU to make friends. My education was about average, but the more you put into it, the better it will be.

    It is a good school for an extremely reasonable price. There are many scholarships offered by the university, so that also helps pay part of the tuition.
