Michigan State is one of the largest universities in the country, able to offer tremendous resources and opportunities to students. Yet, size is relative. MSU's residential colleges -- James Madison College, Lyman Briggs College, and the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities -- offer students the opportunity to engage in highly personalized and focused environments while having all the advantages that come with a Division I, Big Ten university. If you are interested in political science, the natural sciences, or arts and humanities check out MSU's residential college options!
