Why MSU?

<p>Why did you pick MSU as your school?</p>

<p>Prospective students, what attracts you to MSU?
Everyone else, what do the incoming students have to look forward to at MSU?</p>

<p>The amazing animal science program. Honors College. College of Veterinary Medicine.</p>

<p>We all have our own personal reasons.</p>

<p>I chose it because of its Residential College in the Arts and the Humanities. It was a large enough university that I would have amazing opportunities, but the college was small enough that I wouldn't get turned into a number. </p>

<p>I also greatly enjoyed the study abroad programs (I personally am studying twice abroad). </p>

<p>I loved the campus- it's simply one of the most gorgeous campuses in America IMO. </p>

<p>I loved the teachers and how many classes were taught my profs rather than by TAs. </p>

<p>They also offered me a lot in FA that wasn't offered at the other colleges in Michigan. I couldn't afford to go OOS. Ultimately, it came down between U of M and MSU and for me it was no contest.</p>

<p>I am a senior in high school looking at colleges and was very interested in the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities. It sounds exactly like what I want to study. I'm new at all of this and the website at times is hard to understand. Would you mind telling me what made you interested in this study and the different things you have done and classes you have taken within it?
Also, what is your major and are you able to minor in anything in another department?
Thanks.</p>

<p>msred- I'm going to send you a PM. You will get a popup letting you view the email. :)</p>

<p>Why MSU?</p>

<p>-they kept on sending me emails/prospective student info, making me look into a school i would never have initially considered
-I found out about James Madison College (residential college for public/international affairs) which fit perfectly with what I wanted to get out of an academic program
-Honors college/scholarships/research opportunities: they gave me enough money to make going to MSU a plausible option
-When I visited for ADS weekend I loved it. Big school, tons of cool buildings, and most importantly tons of interesting, fun people</p>

<p>Other (more minor reasons)
-our awesome basketball program (and just the Div. I sports scene in general). I love following sports so this was really important to me
-the school spirit (rahhh rahhh MSU!)- lots of school pride
-Some of the best study abroad options/programs in the country
-MSU is relatively close to Chicago, where the bulk of my relatives live (so even going 3000 miles away from home, I still had family close-by to visit for Thanksgiving etc.)</p>

<p>I couldn't get into UM lol. Seriously though, it's a good school although in retrospect I should have gone to the tiny college my dad wanted me to go to. When you're out the only thing the business world knows is what degree you have and the initials after your name. It doesn't matter as much as you think it does in high school, especially because most of you graduating are going to become administrative assistants earning next to nothing, if you can find something THAT good. These days you need a BA for running copy machines. In Michigan most students want to either go to UM or MSU, and MSU does have awesome internship/overseas studies. It's weird because even though UM has a better rep than MSU inside Michigan, outside of Michigan MSU is very well-respected as well.</p>
