As Finals Week approaches, students are busy finishing up their classes with assignments and projects. Considering final exams are typically worth around 30-40% of a class grade, students should spend a lot of time on studying and preparation. Here are a few study tips to ace your finals!
After first year MSU students start living on campus, they might become interested in things outside of class like clubs and intermural sports. In addition to this, there are many weekly activities offered outside of specific clubs and the classroom that they can partake in with their friends.
As an engineer, it is highly encouraged and popular among students to have internships/co-ops related to their major during their college career. This past summer, I did something different: I moved to the East Coast and worked for L’Oréal in South Brunswick, New Jersey.
Whether it’s to help pay for school or late night snacks, many students have part-time jobs while going to school here at MSU. Most jobs on and off campus are very flexible with student’s schedules, giving them as many or as little hours as they need and working around their classes.
In addition to the multiple majors within the College of Engineering, there are also 3 minors students could partake in. Students often have minors in areas that their specific major does not touch on and that they personally are interested in.
Moving on campus can be a big change for a student going into their first year at college. From making life-long friends to creating EGR study groups, Michigan State’ Live On and Engineering’s CoRe programs will help you make the best of your first year in the dorms.
