4.05 Average Rating
There are always people in every academic college here at State that will help you with what you need. The library offers a variety of things to help you with your academic journey and a helpful thing to do would be to get involved in a study group!
Meredith from Old Hickory, TN
The teachers love to break down the material into a way you will comprehend and relate to. They always answer your questions in the best way they can and will help in any way they can. They love to get to know their students and care about you, over the next few months you are going to want to be their best friend!

The engineering department is very challenging, yet rewarding. You must study and stay focused.

The academic challenges I endure at Mississippi State Universisty ensure that my education is always growing. In no class have I ever felt that I was not being challenged or recieving an adequate education.
Kelsey from Grenada, MS
Mississippi State has a LOT to offer: I know a lot of colleges do too, but what makes MSU different from the rest is the great environment of friendly people and staff. They are sooo awesome, especially the folks here because they'll make you feel like you're at home.
I'm not even kidding, it's amazing here because I have a bunch of friends who have gone to other universities for college visits and said that people over there aren't as friendly which is why they picked MSU.
I'm a sophmore at MSU but I'm learning so much about the campus activities, involvement on my campus and even in my community - man it's great.

Totally recommend this for anyone
