            The solid grounding in the basics I got at MSU, combined with the University's commitment to engagement and making the world a better place, prepared me for a lifetime of learning and effective action.

          • Testimony
            1975-1982, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

            Michigan State gave me a valuable and varied undergrad education. I was very prepared for the work force when I graduated in 1982 and my education has taken me through a varied and exciting business life both in Michigan and now in New York City.

          • Testimony
            2006-2011, Bachelor of Science (B.S.)

            Michigan State gives students so many possibilities for their future, from academics to extracurricular sports and clubs. Besides an amazing experience in East Lansing and a Bachelor's degree to take away, MSU is able to give you incredible networking connections throughout the country and in every field after graduation. It's something that smaller schools cannot give, but it is incredibly helpful when looking for jobs or furthering your education. I wouldn't be where I am today without Michigan State University and all the people I have made connections with from there.
