Get into the Intra-mural sports, join a fraternity (they have all of them), join clubs in your major.

Talk to people in your dorm and make friends. Every dorm has a different personality. They have QUiet dorms, female only dorms, "party" dorms, Co-ed dorms. If you don't like the dorm you are put in? Move! They have any kind of dorm you could want with your type of people. I lived in a quiet dorm where people were very friendly and studied alot. Then I joined a frat and moved out. BE proactive!

There admissions process is very poorJan 13 2010Mechanical Engineering
There admissions process is very poor. I almost didn't get in and now I'm the ideal student. I would say if you think that this is the school for you and they deny you, Appeal the decision.

Had a 3.9 GPA in HS and had a above average ACT score even though I can not remember what the exact score was.
I took many high-level courses, including AP courses, asJun 01 2009Electrical Engineering
I took many high-level courses, including AP courses, as well as having a decent amount of volunteer hours and extra-curricular activities. The academic standards of MSU have drastically risen over the past years, so being an "above average" student with a 3.5 GPA will not easily gain you an admittance into Michigan State University.
If you want to get in, go to theMay 26 2009Unknown
If you want to get in, go to the on-site admissions programs they have at high schools. Although I reccommend you go somewhere else.
