Building relationships make a big school feel small and a great place to start is with your faculty members. Take advantage of all they have to offer as you adjust to life at MSU.
Most faculty provide set times during the week-Office Hours- when they are available to meet with students. During office hours, you can seek advice on your classes, get help with homework, or discuss your academic interests. Visit the list of Colleges on campus to begin your search for departments and faculty in your area of interest.
Faculty also offer students the opportunity to participate in department events. Your first hands on experience with department wide events will be with your College Colloquium during Fall Welcome. The College Colloquium will introduce you to your College and its majors, as well as key faculty and staff in the College.
As you get adjusted to college life and academics, you may wish to seek out additional opportunities with faculty members on campus. Check out the Undergraduate Research website to learn more about how MSU undergrads are working with top faculty members on a variety of independent projects.
