What do you enjoy most about being at MSU?
I love the people! MSU has a great community of students, faculty, and friends. No matter what you are doing or where you are on campus, you can always find someone who is willing to help you out. I have found some of my closest friends here at State, and I wouldn't pass it up for the world!

What is the most important advice that you would give students?
Get involved! You don't have to do a whole lot or be a part of everything offered, but be involved in at least one or two organizations on campus that you are interested in. It is a great way to find friends, grow, and enjoy your time at college.
