MSU is a very unique school to attend especially if you want to experience Diversity !
Tips: The transition has been pretty smooth since I've had this experience previously during my UG. There wasn't really a great cultural shift. I was offered a graduate scholarship of $1999/semester based on my UG GPA. I am fully satisfied with my course and the University.
Likes (Permanent Immigration): The Campus Recreation Center is something that really encourages me to go to the college other than classes, which is almost open every day. Playing cricket in the Lacrosse fields was an unforgettable experience. And there are a lot of student clubs that support and celebrate the heritage of various communities.
Dislikes (Public transportation): Faculty is very friendly and supportive. They are always available whenever we have any doubts regarding classes and helped us every time. We've had a diverse faculty that includes professors of South-Asian, Middle-Eastern and North-American descent.

Good place to grow in your career
Tips: Before joining here, one should research a bit to have a basic idea of the course and college. Try to connect with some of the seniors in your batch and know a little about the lecturers. There might be a few certification course you'll need to do before joining the course that will help, so it's better to prepare for all this in advance.
Likes (Safety): Safety is all about how we follow the rules. We need to be conscious of our surroundings all the time and try not to do any suspicious things. The main reason I rated high on safety is because every where I go, I never felt anything wrong till date. Also, I go out only if it is necessary.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): One should do hard work before completing their education to be in a good position after completing their education. Only a university can show us a path to quality education. As a student we should be aware of the current market to succeed.

A lot of Indian students at MSU
Tips: University is perfect but you can see a lot of Indian students. There is a huge crowd coming from India in the last two seasons. Except for this everything is good with the university. You have to do your work on your own in the assignment. They will take serious action if they found plagiarism.

University with good opportunities.
Tips: Students should be aware of all prerequisites before joining the university. Be aware of all the rules one needs to follow. Try to have knowledge of what you are going to study. Interact with faculty if possible to know about the curriculum well. Be a socialized person (if you are not already) to have a successful career.
