About Our Students

Our students come from various walks of life, unique cultures, and many different countries. By sharing their diverse life experiences, our students can enhance their emotional growth, as well as their educational development.

We welcome over 300 students annually to MSU through exchange, the American Semester Program (ASP) and our summer short course, special programs. Our students are able to fully integrate into MSU, accessing countless resources available to them.

Most students see our programs as supplemental to their own university studies, hoping to expand their education through MSU's various academic specialties.

Academically, exchange and ASP students have the breadth of MSU course offerings at their disposal - students study law, engineering, communications, business and more. Our summer short course and special program students have a huge advantage of accessing MSU facilities and resources at a time that best suits their needs.

The core of our programming revolves the American campus. We look to fully integrate our students culturally, academically and physically - an opportunity only found in a university like MSU.

From countries like Australia, Japan and Germany, to Columbia and Mexico, our students are all here for one reason: to experience all that MSU has to offer!
