  • I grew up going to State Football and Baseball games as a kid even when I go back as an adult it brings back memories. 
  • We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent at MSU. Although we were supporting the visiting football team, we were treated with respect and welcomed by he home team fans a guests. The campus is very nice...  read more »
  • I might be slightly biased, but I love my college. Most of my professors are super helpful, and will do as much as possible to make sure I succeed. The biggest misconception is that they will just give answers, when in reality, the teachers want to see your effort and willingness to be guided in the right direction. The culture here is diverse. Sometimes there are groups on the drill field (usually radical religious groups) that say some hurtful things, but it isn't difficult to avoid them. Overall, a wonderful university, in my opinion.
  • Honest rating. But after almost 6 years, there's a lot of things you notice that can be fixed. For one, dining on campus is way too high for the mediocre taste and service. Parking costs way too much for the limited parking. A ticket for parking on campus without a decal costs the SAME price as buying a decal. Let's not talk about the departments. There are some departments here that will give you the run-around as if they have no respect here. And some of their teachers, are the absolute worst. AND not to mention, MSU praises athletics more than they do their own academic students. They will go all-out for a cash cow, but not those trying to gather an education and do something with their lives (but that's every school with a football team)
  • Applied and had everything sent to Mississippi State, never received a decision. I applied early enough to give them plenty of time. I was an out-of-state student looking to go into their engineering program ,and never received a decision. Some of the admissions office people are nice others are very rude. I couldn't even get a refund for my application fee , I paid that Fee to get a DECISION. I pretty much got scammed from MSU. If you're an out-of-state student I do NOT recommend MSU. The communication from them is horrible.
  • 2 children both attending State and both absolutely love it. Both are in mechanical engineering and are receiving excellant educations. From our initial campus visit we've always been treated like family. If you're looking for an excellant education at resonable tution, I recommend that you take a campus tour. The campus is clean, demonstrating that not only the staff, but the students actually care. Go Dawgs! One proud parent!
  • Great school! Awesome friends for a lifetime! You'll forever be in a Mississippi #STATEofMind
