#339: Michigan State University

I'm not gonna lie...I WAS motivated to post about MSU because of their win last night over Iowa in the Big 10 Championship.

Being a Michigan State student is so much more than I ever thought it would be when I started my Master's degree [which I found by Googling "Educational Technology Masters degree overseas]. I've organized the perks below, in no particular order:
  • A very cool tagline: Spartans Will.
  • A very cool app you can download to make your own pictures like this:

  • BIG TIME college football! My first Alma Mater, Trinity University, is a fantastic school, but the football stadium, at least when I was there, held less people than my high school stadium. 
  • MSU's football team just made it to the playoffs!
  • MSU's football team will be playing in the Cotton Bowl (aka JerryWorld) in Dallas, where there is a slight chance I can go to the game
  • I heard rumors that the School of Education is the #1 or #2 in the country. I believe it.
  • Fantastic, professional professors.
  • Rigorous—I meanRIGOROUS—curriculum.
  • An education that is above and beyond any I have received to date.
  • The MAET program.
  • The MAET program in IRELAND.
  • 3 summers in IRELAND.
  • Fantastic fellow students.
  • A worldwide alumni network.
  • Being a part of. The first year of my Master's program, the dean of the college of education came to Ireland to speak at the recognition ceremony for the 3rd years. Last year, the Alumni Association made a video that featured MSU students congratulating all of the Year 3's by name at various places on campus in East Lansing.
  • A very cool mascot that can be found everywhere, like when I was in Austin, TX for Thanksgiving:
