Absolutely fantastic online student support system.
Lots of options for online degrees.
Very affordable.
Tips for prospective students
Keep in touch with your student adviser - they really try to go above and beyond to help!
Take advantage of student resources!
Academic Rigor
The classes were of the proper academic difficulty. For the online classes, be prepared to do every bit as much work as you would in a typical classroom.
Dorm Life
Honestly I have no clue if they have a dorm as I was an online student, but I believe that if the put the work into dorm life that they do into other student services it's probably an A+ arrangement.
Food and Dining
Again, no real clue because I was online only. But they do have culinary arts at their campuses and I'm guessing that like most others they take advantage of the opportunity to teach these students the fine arts of food prep, presentation, and service.
Bang for the buck
The price for online classes is a great value. You get a solid education, many opportunities for growth and development, and the staff are (mostly) 100% dedicated to making sure you get what you need when you need it.
Great for these types of students
Online - I would recommend MSCTC for anyone in the States looking to get a solid online education with a valid degree or diploma.

Academic Rigor
Teachers are drawn to this college to teach. Small class allows teachers to get to know students and their academic track record, which allows teachers to motivate students the way students best adhere to.

Bang for the buck
MState is an affordable option for all! With 2011-2012 tuition rates being $160 per credit and online courses at $199. There are so many opportunities that larger schools cannot offer. A student at MState gets a high quality education for a reasonable price.
