I went to Michigan State University from 1987 to 1991. I absolutely loved my experience there. It's a very large school but there are so many opportunities to make it smaller by joining groups or making friends in dorms. I stayed in the dorms for 2 years and I'm glad I did. I made a lot of friends and never felt isolated in an apartment somewhere off campus. I also joined a sorority in my sophomore year. What a great thing that was. I joined one where I felt comfortable and didn't feel that I had to look a certain way or have lots of money. I enjoyed it immensely!!! The stereo types are inaccurate. We had absolutely no hazing. In fact, we were treated really well as pledges. I would recommend it. There are very few people who wouldn't fit into one of the many houses on campus.
