Much more personal
At MSU, you are more than just a number. We’re friendly and down-to-earth. Faculty and staff know students by name. With a 16-1 student/faculty ratio, you’ll get more personal attention and have more access to your professors. Don’t want to be just another face in a huge lecture hall? More than 75 percent of our classes have fewer than 20 students.
Much more engaged
MSU is recognized by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching as an Institution of Community Engagement, an honor given to fewer than 100 schools nationally. There are more opportunities for students to be engaged both in and out of the classroom. Our undergraduate fellowship program offers students the chance to work with faculty members on research projects as early as their freshman year! You won’t find that opportunity at many universities. Interested in community service? Our Center for Regional Engagement connects students with volunteer and service learning opportunities.
Much more to do
With more than 100 clubs and organizations, MSU offers much more for you to get involved in as a student. Nearly 15 percent of the student body participates in Greek life, and we have a very active Student Government Association, Student Programming Board, Student Alumni Ambassador, visual and performing arts and intramural programs. Campus features
include Eagle Lake, a 30-acre body of water with hiking trails, and in Spring 2011, we will open our Student Recreation & Wellness Center with a climbing wall, fitness areas, swimming pool, sun deck, and more! Nearby, you will find Cave Run Lake where you can fish, boat, swim, or just enjoy the beauty of the surrounding Daniel Boone National Forest.
