Professors in my major gave me very good advising and schooling on preparing to apply to jobs and grad school including taking me step by step through every part of those processes. This included resume and cover letter reviews. There were also reviews of our GPAs, interests, and research to help us figure out what grad schools we should apply to. The school and my major allowed me to have opportunities to network almost every week both in and outside of my major and allowed even undergraduates to meet with established professionals in their fields. There were also plenty of opportunities to work alongside these professionals so I could get good experience and references.

Everything is constantly upgraded. There are tons of computer labs with plenty of computers for students, so it's easy to find internet. The dorms are hit or miss. The dining halls are all much better than at other schools I've been to, but some (East Neighborhood) can have their bad moments or be overly crowded (Brody). Similarly, some of the dorms are nicer than others, but the nice ones are top notch. The staff that run and maintenance everything is also very good. They work hard to make everyone feel at home, and are great resources and friends. The communal furniture can be disgusting. The classrooms are somewhat dirty, but not moreso than those at any school I've been to.

There is lots of diversity. I was able to befriend some of the Chinese students to practice my language skills in my dorm and classes while I was able to go out to parties and restaurants with my friends from the skating team. Even though outside of MSU I often felt excluded or bullied, whenever I'm on campus or even thousands of miles away, I always feel welcomed and accepted by members of the MSU community. No matter differences of opinion on politics, your hobbies, or your favorite media it is hard to find someone from the MSU community that will not stop to have an intelligent conversation with you. Despite my tendency to stay in and not drink, I was never ridiculed or judged for it, and in fact I got quite a bit of respect from my friends who did party for it. People also never forced me to do anything I didn't want to do, but instead encouraged me to take healthy risks I otherwise wouldn't have taken. I felt safe to try new things, like spending a month in a rural Central American jungle digging and leading a sewing workshop.
