  • Still a beautiful campus with open spaces for walking, picnicking or just having a quiet chat. Beautifully kept. A star for the landscape architecture department. Love the friendly ambience. Still one...  more »
  • My wife and I spent the night in Starkville in order to watch the Lady Bulldogs' nationally ranked basketballers play an SEC game. Really pretty walk around campus with visits to the U.S. Grant Presid...  more »
  • Very beautiful campus. The campus is very clean and there is a lot of history. Family member attends college there and would not want her to attend any other school. Hail State!!! 
  • I was a Cochran fellow from July 30 to August 12, 2016. I've got a rich expĂ©rience on climate changes and smart agriculture. I thank all the administrators and professors, particulary Dr Prem Parajuli
  • Graduated from MSU with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. I was in the military for 12 years active duty and went to about 6 different colleges while enlisted and by far MSU was the best one that I attended. It is one of the most military friendly which is what appealed to me in the first place. The facilities are top notch and the Research and Development is among the best in the country (CAVS).
  • 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.
